    The golf balls bear the teal ribbon.......the color ribbon for ovarian cancer. When golfers play, they can be reminded of the fight and the courage it takes for their women to fight this horrible disease. Orchid/violet is the color for the ribbon for testicular cancer.
    If you watched Stand Up To Cancer, you'd know that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
    I wear a pin that has all the colors of ribbons on it and it says, "We're all in this together". Sept. is just the month for awareness of ovarian cancer.

    Estimated new cases and deaths from ovarian cancer in the United States in 2010:
