Never mind that the teams are rivals. Never mind that both teams play for keeps and that it would be a tough battle. The young ladies knew the importance of honoring someone who was lost to cancer - and also spreading awareness about the cancer. Because even though they are young, they need to know that Ovarian Cancer can strike at any time, and knowing the symptoms EARLY is the key to making sure that the disease is caught in time. That is the only assurance that we have right now.
It's never too early to start talking to young adults about watching for the signs and symptoms of Ovarian Cancer. Don't discount anyone as being "too young" to talk to about a terrible disease. Many times the younger people are more responsible than we "old" people give them credit for. And I definitely want these volleyball teams to continue the tradition every year in September. What a great thing to do in memory of Angie.
