There is still so much we don’t understand about cancer, and much more we need to learn about it. Ovarian Cancer is no exception to this.
Ride 4 Research Rider profile: Hannah Armstrong My name’s Hannah, I’m currently a 3rd year medical student based rurally in Cobram, Victoria. Throughout my studies I have learnt a lot about cancer, the way it affects individuals as well as their families. There is still so much we don’t understand about cancer, and much more we need to learn about it. Ovarian Cancer is no exception to this. Currently there is no way to screen for Ovarian Cancer and there are no specific cures. The best way to improve the outcomes for women with this cancer is to do more […]
Joan Pease MP recently spoke in Queensland Parliament about a cause that is very important to her – rare ovarian cancer (ROC), a form of cancer that lacks awareness and research to better understand the disease. Joan’s husband Peter will be doing a Ride for Research, starting at Parliament House in Canberra on 30 April and finishing at Melbourne Cricket Grounds on 8 May World Ovarian Cancer Awareness Day, to raise awareness and funds for this important issue.

Only 32 days to go! Please donate to help us reach our $100,000 target. ROC Inc. RIDE FOR RESEARCH 30th April – 8th May 2022 An outstanding $67,578 has currently been raised for our targeted $100,000! Our volunteers led by Peter Reaburn will be riding from Canberra to Melbourne over 9 days to raise funds for vital ovarian cancer research. There is no cure for GCT, and there is little research to help understand the disease. Clinicians are prescribing treatments based on “best guess” rather than facts. Research is needed and why we are riding to raise much needed funding […]
ROC Inc Ride 4 Research Rider Profile: Sheree Osborne The appeal of this fundraiser, for me, is multifactorial. Personally – I feel the need to support this cause, as my Aunty Claire (Reaburn) was diagnosed with Juvenile Granulosa Cell Tumour, a rare form of ovarian cancer. I have the utmost respect for my Uncle Peter (Claire’s husband of 34 years) in organising this fundraiser to make a very real, and very positive change, for Claire. And for every other female who will be diagnosed with ovarian cancers over the coming years. Career-wise, I work at the University of Queensland in […]
