Upcoming Events

Our Mission

She Rocks Inc. was formed in May 2014 with the intention to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Research and to provide knowledge and local support to those affected by cancer. The mission of She ROCKS is to bring awareness and attention to ovarian cancer through funding ground-breaking research, including finding a means of early detection, more effective treatments and ultimately a cure.

Know The Statistics

Ovarian cancer is 1/10 as common as breast cancer, but three times more lethal, largely because there is no screening test and almost no symptoms until it is very advanced. In fact, 75% of patients present with stage III or IV. She ROCKS exists to change all that.

1 in 71 women

will develop ovarian cancer

 

Worldwide annually

204,000 cases and 125,000 deaths. The United States annually: 22,000 cases and 14,000 deaths

 

 

There is no screening test

A pap test does NOT detect ovarian cancer

 

3/4 of women with ovarian cancer

were misdiagnosed with IBS, indigestion or urinary tract infections

More than 80%

of women do not know the symptoms

 

For ovarian cancers detected

and treated in stage I, the five-year survival rate is 92%. However, only 15% of all ovarian cancers are diagnosed at early stage

 

Where Do Your Local Donations Go?

Of the more than $563,000 raised and distributed in its first five years of existence, 75% was given to UNC Lineberger Cancer Center for research, and 25% to the NHRMC Zimmer Cancer Center for things like comfortable new chemo chairs, vein finders, wig vouchers and gas cards.

When you designate She ROCKS The Triad, 25% stays in the Greensboro community to support women undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer rather than going to NHRMC Zimmer Cancer Center.

Your gifts provide local support for patients in the Wilmington or Greensboro area, and are vital to ovarian cancer research. Your donations could help develop a screening test and new treatment options, and well as find a cure.

    Give to She ROCKS in General
    Donated: $246
    When you give to She ROCKS in general, or you designate Wilmington, you can also be assured your donation will help make life a bit easier for people undergoing treatment for any type of cancer at NHRMC Zimmer Cancer Center. Twenty-five percent of what we take in is given to support local patients through funding things like comfortable new chairs for the chemo suite, vein finders to make taking blood easier, gas cards to make getting to and from treatments possible, and wigs that can make a patient feel less conspicuous and more confident.

    In Memory or Honor of A Loved One
    Donated: $500
    It’s unfortunate but true: Nearly everyone has been touched by cancer in some way, whether they have been diagnosed themselves or have a family member or friend who has had cancer. A donation made in memory or honor of someone is an especially meaningful gift, as it honors a person’s journey and brings hope for those who will follow.

    She ROCKS The Triad
    Donated: $200
    She ROCKS The Triad seeks to extend the good work and fund-raising efforts begun in Wilmington to our part of the state. Our desire is to honor Beth Quinn’s story and add local stories as we bring awareness and hope to the Triad. When you give to She ROCKS The Triad, 75% of your donation also goes to fund ovarian cancer research at UNC, while the other 25% supports local women in the Greensboro area who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
