OCC is thrilled to provide this important space for women across the country to connect with one another using the Zoom platform.
These gatherings are not professionally facilitated support groups nor are they recorded, rather, they are meant to be a place for connection and conversation, organically, to reach more Teal Sisters from coast to coast.
They have created three options to attend, normally on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the last week of each month; the first usually targeted to Young Survivors, the second a general session, and the third for Survivors of 10 years or more.
The Tea’s require registration and have limited space on a first come first serve. Once the rooms are full there will be no further access for that Teal Tea.
For questions, or to reach us for any reason on this Teal Tea resource please email [email protected]

Thanks for the feedback. I know OCC will value hearing from participants. I've made a note to ask the gals on todays' live chat if anyone participated. I was hoping to zoom into one of them myself this week but this is a chemo week for me so hopefully next time.
The schedule past today's final session this afternoon isn't up yet but will update the link for all when they post it.

You might also want to join our weekly live online chat. Each week we have anywhere from 1 to up to 20+ online where we talk about everything and anything. You're welcome to view to get a feel for it without participating yet or just jump in and join us. It's every Thursday at 1PM EDT, in fact one today. You need only sign in to OVdialogue and click on the discussion topic Teal Thursdays..... to enter the chat. Love to have you join us.
I'm coming! I am sooooo excited to see some more of my sisters!
OCC is thinking of inviting a speaker to one of the next teal teas, so if you have any questions you would like answered, feel free to post here or send me a PM so we can build out a question list!
Looking forward to the next teal tea
I will be there for the next! S.
I had to miss the 10+ tea, but I'll be at the next one. I didn't realize it was the same time as my oncologist.
So, I have news! They're doing the surgery! November 18, 11:00 AM that's where I'll be. Scared but hopeful.
No chemo until then, and none for about five weeks after.
My original mass was 34 cm, this one is 9x11x14cm so it's shrunk a lot.
They did note my lymph nodes also shrunk but only mm, so they're cautiously optimistic it hasn't spread there.
I hope you both are doing well!
I will be thinking of you! Surgery is scary but a good next step here. The break in chemo will help you gain some strength before the surgery and time to recover after. I went through the same. You've been focused and strong! Stay hopeful. Sending lots of love
In the meantime, participants are encouraged to use the OVdialogue chat room and weekly live online chats on Thursdays, which will continue to through December, to stay connected.
Happy Holidays everyone,
You both are so wonderful. I'm so grateful to you both for being in my life. I find our sessions to be the most useful part of my Cancer experience and I too always come out more relaxed and carefree. Once I've fully kicked this, I'll have to come to Ontario this summer and maybe a meet up! (Depending on what the other big C, Covid - has in mind)
Lots of love to you both. I finished my Christmas card and will definitely email you guys each one so you can laugh at what I did with it.
