WE DID IT AGAIN!
SHOC's IMPACT IN THE LAB
September 28, 2019 – Once again the SHOC Foundation was able to present its annual gift to Dr. Tanja Pejovic of OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute in late September during National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. The SHOC Board and Advisors took the opportunity to present a check while entertaining at our High Tea’l Survivors Tea held in downtown Portland at the Hotel deLuxe. Our guests were our honored survivors and their guests, and Dr. Pejovic and her team from OSHU. On this beautiful Saturday morning at High Noon we were excited to share one of our largest gifts to date of $100,000. This brings our 15-year gifted total to $1.1 million directly to the OHSU Gynecologic Research Lab under the direction of Dr. Pejovic. We are humbled in our thank you to all the amazing people that support the SHOC Foundation in our mission to end ovarian cancer as we know it.

In late 2019, OHSU shared with the SHOC Foundation a 15-year Impact Report for our ongoing investment in the work of Dr. Tanja Pejovic. This allows Dr. Pejovic's lab to invest in discoveries that are leading to advancements and positive change in women with ovarian cancer.
