Rock for ROC Family Fun Day

 

Saturday 9 February 2019 Lakeview Hotel

Rare Ovarian cancer Incorporated (ROC Inc.) together with the Lakeview Hotel are delighted to announce a fundraising event on the 9th February to raise money for research for a Rare Ovarian cancer called Juvenile Granulosa Cell Tumour (JGCT) that a local child in Oak Flats was diagnosed with just after her 16th Birthday. The youngest case in Australia was diagnosed at 11months old. This is an incurable disease but through research it can be a curable cancer. Come along and be apart of this fundraising event to raise the money needed to make this research happen.
We want your support and involvement to make this day a big success. The fun begins at 12pm
No 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 thus requires a life time of monitoring. The recurrences are generally chemotherapy resistant and tend to be highly aggressive with a poor prognosis. Hence there is a critical need to find ways to treat this disease. That is why research is so vital.
Please join us and be directly involved in helping raise the money needed to find a cure for JGCT and create a brighter future for not only a local child but many other children and women.
We look forward to seeing you on the day.
