Rare Ovarian Cancer Incorporated
Rare Ovarian Cancer (ROC) Incorporated is a registered charity created to raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer & to raise much needed funds for research. Ovarian Cancer isn’t just an old person’s disease.
ROC Inc. Research Funding Appeal
Help us reach our goal to further research into JGCT
Thanks to the Illawarra community, business support and a lot of hard work by the ROC Inc. board and fundraising committee, we have able to create research which is now the world’s largest for JGCT- Juvenile Granulosa Cell Tumour.
The goal of the research is to find the mutated gene through genomics for treatment options and to find a cure!
The research includes Australia's youngest case diagnosed at 11months old to Australia’s oldest diagnosed at 52 years old. It also includes a local child diagnosed at 16 years old.
Recently but sadly it also includes the world’s youngest case diagnosed at just four months old.
With our initial donations and fundraising money, we have been able to connect with Dr Simon Chu from the Hudson Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne. Dr Chu is a world leader in his field and specialises in Granulosa Cell Tumours.
No previous research into this disease means no answers to move forward for treatments or clinical trials. Granulosa cell cancers have a recurrent nature that is they come back over a long length time and requires a lifetime of monitoring.
That is why this research is so vital.
Currently the research covers 5 to 6 participants.
We have 24 participants registered with ROC Inc. making it the world’slargest research for JGCT and the numbers continue to grow.
Our next goal is to raise $25,000 to be able to pay for another 3 to 4 participants in the research.

Thank you to Hudson Institute Of Medical Research for sharing such an important message with the Ovarian cancer Awareness Wings.
The Awareness Wings spread an important message with the symptoms to look out for. #rockforroc #ROCInc #ovariancancer #ovariancancerawarenesswings #ovariancancerawarenessOvarian cancer is often detected at a late stage because women don’t recognise the symptoms. Often too late for life-saving treatment.
The Wings of Awareness were created to educate everyone about the disease’s early signs.
Dr Simon Chu has brought the colourful wings, created by ROC Incorporated, to Hudson Institute. Today our researchers are taking photos and spreading the wings across their social channels.
If you see the wings fly into your feed, please share them. You might save someone’s life.
Dr Chu’s research centres on discovering new therapeutic options for treating rare ovarian cancers.
