Ribbons displayed on light poles to show support
September 6, 2017

For the third straight year, the city of Lewes is participating in Turn the Towns Teal, a national campaign to create awareness of ovarian cancer and its symptoms. 

Volunteers from Beebe Healthcare, Tunnell Cancer Center, Lewes City Hall and local elected officials gathered in Zwaanendael Park Sept. 1 to tie ribbons on light poles in the downtown district of Lewes. Coinciding with National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, the ribbons will remain in place through September. The local campaign is sponsored by the Delaware Ovarian Cancer Foundation, which is dedicated to saving more women’s lives.
