The AROVCC Board members and committee members have been very busy preparing for a wonderful new year. A few things that have been lined up include:
- Printing of our own ovarian educational brochure
- Distribution of the brochure to all Arkansas Area Health Education Centers and Arkansas Department of Health OB/Gyn offices. (AHEC’s are the primary educational outreach effort of UAMS and the principal means of decentralizing medical and other health professions education throughout the state)
- Preparation and planning for our 4th Annual Awareness Rally, 3rd Annual Survivors Luncheon (August 31) and 2nd Annual Artists for Ovaries (Sept 24).
Most recently we have had the opportunity to participate in Lilly’s Dim Sum Then Some ”One Day, One Community” – One Monday night a month, they feature a local charity and give 15% of their proceeds of the day to the featured group. Thank you all to everyone that came out and supported the AROVCC!!
The support for ovarian cancer managed to draw out Mr. Sunshine for a few hours on Saturday May, 9 – which allowed for a successful First Annual Hope Hike (Lisette C. Johnson Memorial Hike for Ovarian Cancer Education and Research) With over 60 hikers in attendance and over 100 virtual hikers, the Hike was able to raise over $2000. The money will be used for ovarian cancer research and education throughout the state of Arkansas.
Lisette’s family was in attendance and were truly touched by the support given to fight this deadly disease. Pictured below is a few of the local survivors in attendance.
Congratulations everyone! Thank you to all of the committee members that selflessly devoted their time!
If you are able to get your car washed at the SUDS carwashes on Maumelle Blvd and on the corner of Shackleford & Rodney Parham, SUDS is going to contribute 10% of their September earnings to the Arkansas Ovarian Cancer Coalition to be used to help educate and raise awareness about this silent killer. The Shackleford location has a big ovarian cancer awareness banner out front, you can’t miss it.
Please take a moment to do this, it will be the best car wash you have ever received AND you will benefiting ovarian cancer awareness!
