Ovarian cancer survivor Julie Nawrocky Reis has already handed out 420 yards of teal ribbon to people in Stow as part of a national campaign this month called Turn the Towns Teal.
Reis, 33, is on a quest to turn her negative experience of getting cancer into a positive.
"I just wanted something good to come out of all this in addition to my recovery," Reis previous said. "I blog and I really get a lot from sharing with people what my experience was. Maybe I can help save a life."
Reis went to grocery stores and door-to-door handing out ribbons and silent symptom cards Saturday.
"I have three more rolls [of teal ribbon] coming in to fill request from people and to tie some more around the city," said Reis. "I have received such a great response!"
Trees around City Hall and the surrounding campus have the teal ribbon tied to them.
"When the mayor's office was approached to display teal ribbons to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer, we immediately agreed to do so," said Mayor Sara Drew. "We are happy to support local families who have struggled with this difficult diagnosis and celebrate the survivors. I hope all Stow residents will join me in supporting the women who face ovarian cancer with bravery and resolve."
