This week's Teal Spotlight Team is Stay Strong & Carry On

We are happy to spotlight Team Stay Strong and Carry On, who’s team captain, Vivian Seiler is a 4 year, stage 3C, ovarian cancer survivor! Originally a part of her teal sister’s (Debbie Drennan) team in 2017, Vivian is now working to raise funds and awareness by starting her own team. 

“The Sandy Rollman Foundation provides research monies for clinical research, as well as provides the Survive and Thrive group, which allows us survivors to gather to support each other and hear from outside speakers,” shared Vivian.  “I have personally benefitted from a clinical trial as well as the Survive and Thrive group.”

Team Stay Strong and Carry On loves to see ALL of the SURVIVORS at Sandy Sprint Philly each year!  “There is an unspoken bond between each of us, as we give each other hope and support,” says Seiler. 

“Stay Strong and Carry On” is comprised mainly of former work friends who continue to offer emotional support as well as help fundraise!  Seiler describes them as “simply THE BEST!” 

The team has posted on Facebook and Instagram as well as on their Caringbridge site.  Difference audiences are being reached through the various digital media and this has been successful.  The team goal is to have 10 people join Vivian and her husband.

While the team won’t be wearing super hero capes or dressing up, they just bring themselves, as we are all superheroes!  “Whether you are a survivor, caregiver, friend or family member, cancer affects all of the people who surround a cancer patient.” 

Team Stay Strong and Carry On is committed to helping raise awareness, with Vivian sharing her story wherever she can, whether it is participating in Survivors Teaching Students or mentoring a newly diagnosed woman.  “I want to give back, as I feel very fortunate that I’ve survived 4 years past diagnosis as a lot of women aren’t as lucky as me.  I am grateful.”
