Good Giving Challenge 2023 - Thank you!

Bluegrass Ovarian Cancer Support, Inc participated again as a registered charity.  The Executive Board at Bluegrass Ovarian Cancer Support (BOCS) wants to offer our heartfelt thanks to our Good Giving Challenge donors for your incredible generosity. Your donations during the Good Giving Challenge will help to spread awareness about ovarian cancer risks and support survivors in their journey.

We more than doubled the amount raised over last year and we're thrilled!

The BOCS care bags that are distributed to newly diagnosed ovarian and gynecologic cancer patients are $10 each. The teal bows we hang around Central Kentucky towns in September during Turn the Towns Teal Inc. cost about $2.50 each. Survivors and patients attend our annual luncheon at no cost to them -- $35 donation for each.

Thank you sincerely from the BOCS Board.

Nov 7 - George Thorogood & the Destroyers show at Lexington Opera House.  

BOCS was invited to have a table.  We handed out BOCS stickers, our new brochure, and ovarian cancer risk cards from Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance.  A portion of proceeds from the show also benefit The Marla Thorogood Memorial Fund For Ovarian Cancer Research in conjunction with Vanderbilt University Medical Center, in memory of George’s late wife who passed away in 2019.  

Thank you to Mr. Thorogood and the Opera House for the opportunity to spread awareness of ovarian and gynecologic cancer risk factors.
