A Care Pack Party is a wonderful opportunity for families to volunteer alongside each other to help spread love and hope to cancer fighters. The simplicity of a Cancer Care Pack allows everyone, regardless of age or ability, to participate in our mission. Families have found Care Pack Parties to be a great way to regularly give back, and kids love helping their parents assemble the Care Packs, write notes of encouragement, and decorate bags. Check out our events page to find out where our next community-wide party will be held or request a private Care Pack Party for your church or organization.
Since T. Teal began, over 20,000 Cancer Care Packs have been delivered to cancer treatment centers across Oklahoma. In addition, T. Teal has mailed over 3,000 of their Cancer Care Packs to all 50 states. Click the link below to see what goes into each care pack and how to request one for yourself, a friend, or loved one!
Spread love and hope to cancer fighters by sewing the cloth bags used for each women’s care pack or writing a personal note for each care pack! Drop off or mail to 720 W. Wilshire Ste 101 K OKC, OK 73116 when completed!
Soon after receiving a diagnosis of stage 4 ovarian cancer, I knew I needed to talk with a survivor. I learned about Tenaciously Teal through friends my church, and reached out through social media. Within an hour, Tarah Warren became my "first responder,"offering a phone number. That conversation was how I first learned about “Brave Shave.” "Brave Shave" for Alan (my amazing husband whose head was shorn simultaneously with mine) and me was a rousing celebration of support on a sunny Saturday morning in the (then) downtown Oklahoma City headquarters of TTeal, with our daughter and about two dozen friends cheering us on. Honestly, there was little "brave" in play (on my part) at the time, but knowing hair loss is inevitable with one of the two chemotherapy drugs I am receiving, it offered a rare opportunity to get out in front of the disease and “fight like a girl!”
Tarah, founder and executive director of TTeal, is herself a survivor of ovarian cancer. She enlisted her network of family and friends to help
gather donations and assemble “care packs,” and began delivering these love gifts to other patients on her treatment days at OKC’s Stephenson
Cancer Center, while attached to the "tree" that carried her own infusion drugs. This was the start of Tenaciously Teal, which now reaches out to
ovarian cancer fighters across Oklahoma and the country. A board of directors and web of volunteers offer services including make-overs, photography and hospitality for “Brave Shave” events, as well as hands-on assembly and delivery/mailing of care packs, or simply a much-needed voice
Tenaciously Teal (tteal.org) is an organization worthy of respect and support from anyone willing to "Fight Like a Girl" for women who are fighting for their lives.Read More Testimonials
