Teal Tuesdays - Live Online Chat! (Discontinued indefinitely)



  • At wat what time is this live chat?  I thought it was a 10:30 which is 1:30 Eastern time. A little confused here. 
  • Hi @Gabrielle.  I'm sorry for the confusion!  Teal Tuesday chats are online here in the OVdialogue community.  It is at 8pm CST which is 9pm EST.  The next one is tomorrow evening, Tuesday September 25.

    The Live Teleconference that was posted for last Thursday, September 20, was a telephone conversation for members of the community to talk to each other via phone and provide some feedback for Ovarian Cancer Canada on your experiences with OVdialogue. It was at 1:30 EST.  I apologize that you were here waiting for it to start.  If you would like to provide some feedback, please feel free to call or email me at 1-877-413-7970 x231 or [email protected].

Leaving very best wishes for resilence and strength to all of you cheking in, and encouragement to learn as much as can be learned about OvCa. That puts you in driver’s seat.

  • Hello and how is everyone this week?
  • Hi @Flowergirl How are you ?
  • HI @Linda - doing ok -thanks - trying to squeeze out the last ofthe nice fall weather - so great when we can get outside!
    How are you doing?

  • Hi @Flowergirl Great to hear and glad you’re enjoying the nice fall days. Love it when it’s sunny and I’m now able to walk without my cane 😁 Big milestone (2 years disabled) 
    Scan last week and saw oncologist yesterday. There’s a tiny mesenteric lymph node (.8cm) so they have decided I need another scan in 6 weeks. They don’t want to wait 3 months which they’ve been doing recently. So I’m glad they’re being thorough but anxious because I was hoping to book a flight to visit my wee sister in Scotland next April. But I have to wait for the next scan. Making future plans is one of the hard things for me living with recurrence. 
  • that is good when you can get out
    Yes, so good they are looking after you. 
  • Thanks @Flowergirl. I participated in the Cancer Chat this afternoon. Went very well and the 90 minutes just flew by. 
  • Hope you are able to get away for the visit - agreed, those future plans are for sure a challenge

  • good night everyone - hope you are doing well this week
    See you back here on Tuesday Oct 30 at 7:00 PM CST 
  • Thanks @Flowergirl Keep well and have a great week.  Night night 🦋
  • good evening everyone 

  • Hello everyone !  
  • Hi @Linda - hope you are well.... Quiet night -everyone is prepping for Halloween
    Wondering how your trip was @jsullivan33 if you are around
