SHOC's 2017 Annual Donation to OHSU
brings total donated to $900,000
On Saturday, September 30, 2017, we were excited to have 13 survivors and their guests, and representation from OHSU and AstraZeneca along with the SHOC Foundation Board of Directors at our 7th Annual Teal In The Garden Survivor's Lunch held at Xico in Portland. It was here that the SHOC Foundation presented its annual gift to Dr. Tanja Pejovic in the amount of $90,000. These funds are directly used for her ovarian and gynecologic cancer research lab at OHSU, with the hope that an early detection indicator can be found. This brings the total gifted to $900,000 over 13 years. This is another milestone for us and we are excited to share this great news with you. Thank you for your continued support in helping us make a difference!

A Message from SHOC's President
What a beautiful beginning to 2018 as I gaze into the sunshine on the first day of the New Year. As I look back on 2017, it was a year that brought much joy and happiness to many, while for others it brought sadness and good-byes. This bittersweet mix of our lives is what motivates so many of us to live our life well and do something in our life that counts.
The SHOC Foundation embraces this philosophy and we have learned from our experiences of dedicated involvement by either serving as a board member, community volunteering, participating in events or giving graciously that this will help us make a difference in our mission to find an early detection method and end Ovarian Cancer as we know it.
Your generous donations have allowed us to continue our work to fund research and raise awareness in women’s personal health surrounding this terrible disease and the symptoms it presents. For myself and on behalf of the SHOC Foundation, we are forever grateful to you and your continued interest in helping us end this disease.
Enjoy the sunshine in your life!
