Tenaciously Teal currently operates out of cancer treatment centers within the state of Oklahoma and works with hospital staff to provide Cancer Care Packs each month along with gas and meal cards to those needing additional assistance. Tenaciously Teal strives to deliver hope to each patient it touches; showing them they are not alone in this battle and there are people who care about their individual fight.
Tenaciously Teal also offers Brave Shave Parties to women faced with cancer treatment-related hair loss. Brave Shave Parties invite women to tackle hair loss on their own terms, while surrounded by family and friends. The salon time, hairstylist and hors-d’oeuvres are provided free of charge.
Tenaciously Teal also offers Empowerment Shoots. At each shoot, women are treated to professional makeup, styling, and photography, which are all provided at no cost to the cancer fighter. An Empowerment Shoot can be requested at any stage of treatment – at the beginning to empower the fighter or at the end to celebrate the journey.
