Generous donations and sponsors of our events have allowed us to continue this work and raise awareness in women's personal health to this horrific disease and the symptoms it presents.


As this season of thanks and giving moves rapidly forward, I must take pause to count my blessings.

We have been working nearly 12 years to honor and remember Sherie Hildreth in our effort to fund the research desperately needed to find an early detection marker and hopefully find the cure to end Ovarian Cancer as we know it.

On Dec. 19, the SHOC Foundation presented Dr. Tanja Pejovic and her research team at OHSU's Gynecologic Research Lab a gift of $80,000. This brings the total given by the SHOC Foundation to $810,000 since 2005.

Generous donations and sponsors of our events have allowed us to continue this work and raise awareness in women's personal health to this horrific disease and the symptoms it presents. Please know that for myself and on behalf of the SHOC Foundation, we are forever thankful for the continued interest in helping us make a difference.

Bruce A. Hildreth is president of the Sherie Hildreth Ovarian Cancer (SHOC) Foundation.
