Mayor Christine Dansereau read the second proclamation, recognizing September as “Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month” and establishing that Roselle will be “turning teal” by hanging teal ribbons around the borough on trees and lamp posts. The campaign also allows volunteers the opportunity to provide local businesses and residents with information pertaining to ovarian cancer. 

“Ovarian cancer is the most serious gynecological cancer with no early detection test available,” read Mayor Dansereau. “It’s often referred to as the silent disease because its symptoms are often vague and subtle.” 

If detected in the early stages, the survival rate for ovarian cancer is 90% to 95%. Turn the Towns Teal is a national awareness campaign that was started in 2007. and is the official electronic news source for your town! To get your free daily Roselle or Roselle Park news, click on your town.
