Kaylee & her Mother Kelly created Totally Teal because No One Fights Alone & Kaylee hopes to inspire other women of all ages giving them a little reminder that they too are Brave, Beautiful & Strong just like she is. Our beautiful chemo care bags are filled with items Ovarcomers can safely use while OVARCOMING Ovarian Cancer. Totally Teal is composed of the colors teal and gold as teal is the color of ovarian cancer and the gold represents childhood cancer. Kaylee continues to represent both.
Based on her own expedience, Kaylee thought very carefully about each item and what should be included in her care bags.
- A water bottle to stay hydrated
- Blanket to keep you warm
- Journal & pen to write your thoughts
- A Mask to keep you protected.
- Chapstick & lotion if you experience dry skin issues
- Hand sanitizer & wipes to aid your immune system
- A scarf to keep your head covered as you experience hair loss with treatment
- Lemon drops & ginger candies to help with nausea you might have
- Tissues to wipe tears away
- Toothbrush, Toothpaste & Toiletry bag to help with the bad taste chemo drugs leave in your mouth
- Wristband to remind you that you are Brave, Beautiful & Strong
- A little note to tell you about Kaylee's Journey
- Ovarcome Information pamplett
2019 - 2023 OvarEmbrace - Totally Teal Care Bags were delivered around the country, Canada, UK & to Australia. We deliver bags to Ovarcomers at Sugar Land Houston Methodist, MD Anderson Cancer Center, The Canopy @ Memorial Herman, Baylor College of Medicine & UT Health. What a joy it is to be able to give a little something to those OVARCOMING in hopes to let them know we were thinking of them. Check out photos below.
We are excited to announce that we are expanding our OvarEmbrace program. On special days throughout the year we will hand out Chemo Care Bags to those going through treatment for ANY type of cancer. Kaylee wants EVERYONE to know they are Brave | Beautiful | Strong. If you support a specific cancer, let us know and come out and represent at our events supporting #DayOfOvarcoming.
With your help Kaylee can continue to grow her OvarEmbrace Program and reach more Ovarcomers in hopes to give a little comfort and to remind them that they are Brave, Beautiful & Strong. 100% of the Totally Teal Trot & Ride for a Cause benefits Kaylee's OvarEmbrace Totally Teal Program & Day of Ovarcoming Program. Together we can Ovarcome.
Kaylee is a beautiful, smart, spunky and STRONG 13 year old girl who was diagnosed with stage IIIA2 Ovarian Cancer in 2019 at Age 9. She underwent surgery at Texas Children's Hospital to remove a 10cm Germ Cell Tumor. Surgery was a success but the cancer had spread requiring her to complete 4 rounds of chemotherapy, each round consisting of 1 week in the hospital and 2 weeks home to recover.
Kaylee was not able to finish out the school year, but that did not get her down. Kaylee's motto during treatment was "When life hits you, track the weather"! Kaylee loves to Ice Skate several times a week. She enjoys school, is on the Volley Ball Team & about to be on the Basketball Team with her school mates. She loves playing with her friends, listening to music, boating at the lake, kayaking, going on vacations and spending time with her Family, Cat & Dog. She loves Debate and her Dream is to become a Lawyer.

March/April 2022 - Day Of Ovarcoming Bags
Kaylee Strong continues to Raise Awareness for Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer ranks fifth in cancer deaths among women, accounting for more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system. A woman's risk of getting ovarian cancer during her lifetime is about 1 in 78. It is one of the most challenging diseases known to medicine and often goes undetected until it has spread within the pelvis and abdomen. Early detection is difficult because symptoms can be mild and vague and could apply to a variety of conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome or ovarian cysts. 4 in 5 Women will be misdiagnosed & 1 in 4 Women will wait over 6 months to get a correct diagnosis. Advanced-stage ovarian cancer may cause few and nonspecific symptoms that are often mistaken for more common benign conditions.
The most typical ovarian cancer symptoms include:
• Increase in tummy size
•Needing to urinate more often or urgently
Kaylee Strong Fun Run or Walk proceeds will Benefit Ovarcome, an Ovarian Cancer Foundation. Their Mission is "to raise global awareness, to fund research in search of a cure, and to provide financial support to underserved women in the U.S. as well as developing nations in their valiant fight against ovarian cancer" Our Goal is to bring awareness, educate others about the symptoms and help Ovarcome with their mission.
