Our volunteers led by Peter Reaburn will be riding from Canberra to Melbourne over 9 days to to raise funds for vital ovarian cancer research.

Peter’s wife Claire was diagnosed at 53 years of age with Juvenile Granulosa Cell Tumour (JGCT), a rare ovarian cancer that typically affects younger females. Claire is the oldest female in the world to have JGCT. The youngest was diagnosed in Australia at age 11 months!! Overall, 94% of patients with JGCT are under 30 years of age.

There is no cure for JGCT, nor is there research to help understand and 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 for research.

ROC RESEARCH

Thanks to the Illawarra community, business support and a lot of hard work by the ROC Inc. board and fundraising committee, we have been 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!

DYSONS BUS COMPANY to the rescue when we sadly had to call off the last two days of the ROC Incorporated Ride for Research due to a Covid outbreak.
Rider and crew safety come first. Massive achievement regardless, 760kms pedalled on my bike during the week and collectively we raised $132,000 thus far.
Donations are tax deductable.
Thanks to everyone for your support.
