MOCA stands for

                   Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance
My Aunt Di passed away from ovarian cancer more than a year ago and her daughter Jill is raising money for this great cause, in memory of her mom, Diana Chrz.
On Saturday, September 11th, MOCA will be holding their 11th Annual Silent No More Walk/Run for Ovarian Cancer. In hopes of helping her raise money for a cause that is close to her heart, I have created this little black cat holding onto a teal butterfly.

Teal is the color used to represent Ovarian Cancer and my Aunt Diana loved butterflies. Butterflies and ELVIS PRESLEY.  I am listing this little painted muslin cat on EBay in hopes of helping her with a donation. I will donate the entire amount of the winning bid to MOCA.

This kitty is painted in acrylics on muslin. She is in wearing a white ruffled dress and holding a teal butterfly.
She is weighted on the bottom and stands on her own. She would be nice on a shelf or next to your computer, watching over you. It costs nothing to feed her and there's no need for a litter box. She is honored to be able to help with such a great cause.

She measures approximately 2 inches wide, 3 inches across at her ears and about 4 1/2 inches tall. She is happy to ride around in your pocket. She is a piece of art. Not a toy. And she doesn't like to be chewed on. Please give her a good home and help the Ovarian Cancer Alliance Cause. She is currently listed on EBay.

Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance has awarded $2.6 million dollars in the last 10 years to over 35 research projects aimed at early detection, better treatment and a cure for ovarian cancer. This support has given women across the state and country, access to cutting edge treatments developed in Minnesota.

KNOW THE SYMPTOMS OF OVARIAN CANCER
•Bloating
•Pelvic or abdominal pain
•Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly
•Urinary symptoms (urgency or frequency)

TAKE ACTION if any symptoms occur almost daily for more than a few weeks. Experts suggest a combination pelvic/rectal exam, a transvaginal ultrasound, and a CA125 blood test.

If ovarian cancer is suspected, consult a gynecologic oncologist.
