ovarian cancerLeesburg, VA (May 5, 2020) The Leesburg Town Council approved an official proclamation at its last meeting in recognition of “World Ovarian Cancer Day” on Friday, May 8, 2020.

In a tradition started last year, teal flood lights will illuminate the Loudoun Street wall of the Town parking garage beginning at 5:30 p.m. Thursday evening, which will continue throughout the night. Due to the need for social distancing requirements during the current COVID-19 pandemic, no ceremony will be held this year.

Each year, on May 8th, women living with ovarian cancer, along with their families, supporters, and organizations from around the world, come together to raise awareness about ovarian cancer. The first “World Ovarian Cancer Day” took place in 2013. To learn more, visit
