#RockForROC

Paint a rock for ROC.

Rock for ROC group was set up to help raise money for much needed research for Rare Ovarian Cancers (ROC).
Ovarian cancer is not just an old person’s disease. That’s a common misconception. Ovarian cancer doesn’t discriminate with age be it a child, adolescent or adult.
Through research we can improve the way that Rare Ovarian Cancers can be treated and managed.
This group was set up so you can share the rocks you have painted or the rock(s) you have.

RockForRock Facebook Group

How can you participate?
Paint a rock and make a donation to the ROC Foundation.
It’s easy to do and a bit of fun for young to old.

What a way to relaunch our #socialmedia pages!

Congrats to our #superhero #scientists in Centre for Endocrinology & Metabolism Hudson Institute of Medical Research Prof Peter Fuller, A/Prof Simon Chu & Maria Alexiadis (Hudson Institute); Prof Vicki White (Deakin University); Prof Tom Jobling (Monash Health); Kim, Kaye, Sue & Linda (GCT Survivor Sisters! (GCT-SS)) & Tasha Armour (Rock for ROC) for their recent publication in Cancer entitled "How social media can help to understand treatment experiences of survivors of rare cancers: findings from the Granulosa Cell Tumor (GCT) Survivor Sisters Facebook® group member survey" . This is a world-first study that analysed real-World data from a #Facebook-based survivor support group.��The study sought to provide a platform for women living with #rare #ovarian #cancers to have their voices heard, as they often feel unheard by the medical profession.��The GCT-SS Facebook® group, which consists of 743 members, was the primary source of information for the research, allowing the researchers to gain insight into the cancer experiences of these women and giving them the opportunity to make a difference.

  1. I found one of yr ROCs this arvo, on the beach rocks near Cape Paterson.
    Hadn’t wanted to pick it up at first, but then did and re hid it.
    For sure it will be found again, tho it certainly won’t be as obvious.
    Could send U pics if U like.
