FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS TENT- We want to honor and remember those who have lost their life to ovarian cancer.

We also have a Together In TEAL Scrapbook and would love to have you create a page dedicated to your loved one. We will have cardstock, markers, scissors, stickers, and sleeve protectors available in the tent. Or, if you would like, you can create a page at home and bring it with you. Please make sure your dedication page is on 8.5x11 size paper or cardstock.
