Ovarian Cancer Survivors Form Special Bond

Published: Sept. 23, 2016

This weekend, Omaha's Woodmen Tower will shine in teal light against the night sky.

And women all over the area will dress in teal, paint their fingernails in the color and celebrate all that it stands for.

Teal represents ovarian cancer. But to ovarian cancer survivors, it represents a journey with other strong, hopeful women.

"It has just that sisterhood bond. You can talk to them," said Linda Roeder, as she visited with her friend Nancy Profit. Both are ovarian cancer survivors.

They met through a support group for survivors at Omaha's Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center.
