This will be one of the most important posts ever for GCT and research, please read and share it to make an impact!

Juvenile Granulosa Cell Tumour jGCT an ovarian cancer that has NEVER EVER …. I repeat NEVER EVER received funding from the Australia Government for research.

We don’t even know the most basic information. Each cancer to be able to treat it needs to know the mutated gene, a starting point.

We are hoping that will all change as Rare Ovarian Cancer Incorporate – ROC Inc is working with the amazing and world leading Granulosa Cell Tumour -GCT experts, Dr Simon Chu and Professor Peter Fullers and their team at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne; as they applying for a rarely seen grant that allows applications for fundamental research for Ovarian cancer from the Medical Research Future Funds (MRFF).

Another meeting today with Stephen Jones. I would like to thank Stephen, Jarrod and the team for their support, ongoing phone calls, follow ups and meetings in helping us get this message to the government and the Australian Health Minister Hon. Greg Hunt.

The research grant that the Hudson is applying for is covering all Granulosa Cell Tumours, GCT accounts for 10% of all ovarian cancer, it has two sub types adult (aGCT) and juvenile (jGCT) and is different from the more common ovarian cancers that form on the surface of the ovary. GCT forms inside the ovary and the biology is very different to the more common forms. Clinical trials and medications that the government does fund currently is only for the more common types of ovarian cancer.

We need your support and we need a voice to make sure our message is heard.

My daughter was diagnosed at 16 years old with this horrible cancer that is recurrent and requires a lifetime of monitoring and no real treatment options because there has been no research.
I refuse and I won’t take that there has been no research, change is needed. Funding fairness is needed. We need fundamental research, that will lead to diagnostic tools and treatment options and my biggest wish of all a cure!

jGCT research will be the world’s first and largest systematic research, the participants in Australia the youngest diagnosed at 11 months old to the oldest diagnosed at 52 years old. In the world our youngest diagnosed at 4 months old the eldest diagnosed at 53 years. This horrible disease affects females of all ages from babies to older women. This is one part of the research they are applying for in the grant.
Please shout out with us to create change for the future for research for GCT.

Our government needs to know how important this research is and to listen.

Share the shit out of this and let’s make an impact on ovarian cancer research!

Yesterday Tasha & Melanie had the opportunity to be interviewed for ovarian cancer awareness, to be shown on 10daily.

The beautiful Ovarian cancer Awareness Wings were also set up for Channel 10 staff to have their photo taken and share awareness for Ovarian cancer and its symptoms.

Huge thank you to Channel 10, Alison and her team and a very special thank you to @Hugh Riminton for tweeting a picture of him and the Wings 😍

Watch this space as change is happening for ovarian cancer awareness and research! 💙💛💙
