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.

Feeling like change is coming.
I believe that we have started something that is going to save other women, children and babies.
Each time we drop a rock or talk and share our stories or when you have your picture taken in front of our Awareness Wings and tag #ROCKforROC more people are becoming aware of the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer.
We all are collectively creating HOPE. 💙🙏
Thank you everyone for supporting us.

Thank you Community Gateway for your support.
If you would like to arrange an event like this please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for any support we can provide.
Every little bit counts.
#ROCIncFriday's are funky at Community Gateway. Each week our staff bring a gold coin donation to dress in mufti (just like Amanda here) and the proceeds are saved up for the end of the year. Last year, we donated to the Kmart Australia Giving Tree, ensuring that as many kids as possible wouldn't go without at Christmas time. This year, we're aiming to raise funds and awareness for ROC Incorporated with hope of finding a cure for Ovarian cancer. ... See MoreSee Less
