Car Tag History
Alabama is one of three states who currently have an ovarian cancer car tag. The Waldrep family was instrumental in motivating the State of Alabama to sell the Drive Out Ovarian Cancer car tag after the death of their daughter, Brittany Waldrep. When asked, Megan Waldrep-Stalnaker, Brittany’s sister why it was so important to her family to establish the car tag for the state of Alabama she said, “Presently, the majority of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are diagnosed in the later stages because there is no accurate screening test to detect the illness at its earliest stage.
The proceeds from the sell of these tags go to ovarian cancer research at University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital.
How to Get Your Tag
You can purchase the car tag at any of your local Department of Motor Vehicles. The $50 car tag is tax-deductible courtesy of the Norma Livingston Ovarian Cancer Foundation.
