Teal Tuesdays - Live Online Chat! (Discontinued indefinitely)



  • Thanks @Flowergirl for the shout out about our staff event on Tuesday as we remembered and reflected on the amazing women we meet through our work at Ovarian Cancer Canada.  You are all part of that group and we are so happy that you are finding this community helpful and supportive as you deal with this disease and provide encouragement and support to each other.  It is a privilege for me to be the moderator of this site! 
  • Hello @Marilyn - thank you - so appreciate your support!
  • Hello - good evening everyone - Hi @terrylee - how are you this evening?

  • Tonight is a hockey night in Canada! Good night everyone - catch you back on the site when we can or try to "meet" here on:
    Tuesday December 12 @ 7:00 PM CST - take care and hope everyone is doing well. 
  • Hi there @Flowergirl I came on tuesday and didn't see anyone else. Clearly I need to clean my glasses! Will try again this coming up Tuesday if I'm home in time :)
  • I will try to make it this coming Tuesday.  My schedule has changed.  Looking forward to it if anyone is around.  
  • I am here today.  Hello to whomever is around.
  • Hello -  good evening - Welcome  @liesel and @oldmaster and those recently joined to the chat. There are some new topics and a lot of great support here - thank you everyone for sharing... I am trying to log in every Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM CST hoping we can all connect together. Or join when you can and "see you" throughout the site.
  • Hello @Barbara and @CurlyHair - welcome - looks like we have a party today!
  • So @Flowergirl how does this work?

  • @Flowergirl, thanks for commenting on oldmaster's situation with me.  Not sure I understand the doctor situation there.  Poor doctoring.   
  • Hi @CurlyHair - this is the place to log in to say hello on Tuesdays and we can chat about  what is happening for you today. If there is a topic already started, we can pop around the site to comment. 

  • @Flowergirl Do we not dialogue under this discussion page versus jumping around to other discussions which I do anyway.  It is freezing here in Toronto.  I know that It makes it hard to walk outside for exercise.  
  • Hi @CurlyHair - yes, you can comment here or if you think it fits better somewhere else you can do that also.
    Still trying to get the users on board with the chat if they are interested...
    Some topics and info may get lost and I really like the @ feature because then it doesn't matter where you comment.
    Yes, winter is among us.... I'm going to do a walk in the mall or one of the arenas so it can be indoor exercise - less chance of a fall.
  • Good night everyone - Happy Hanukkha to those celebrating. Hello @Mimila - welcome to the site.... 
    Hope to "see" you all back here on Tuesday December 19 @7:00 PM CST
