It has been enlightening to engage with the community and arm people with much needed information about this horrible disease – ovarian cancer. The 11th Annual Think Pink – A Salute to Cancer Overcomers event hosted by Annette Smith was unforgettable. To hear stories from cancer survivors, cancer fighters and those families impacted by cancer was inspiring; reminding us to keep fighting the good fight. Thanks for allowing us to partner with you. We had an amazing time and will see you next year!

Did you see it? Our feature in The Manning Times newspaper? In July our founder Annie Robinson got to talk about why we started the JWC Memorial Foundation, our mission, how ovarian cancer can affect everyone and our August golf tournament fundraiser.  Speaking of the golf tournament…the Inaugural JWC Memorial Foundation Golf Tournament was a huge success! We hosted 80 golfers at the beautiful Lake Marion Golf Course in Santee, SC and raised nearly $6k, close to our $10k goal for ovarian cancer research. WOW! Thank you to this community for always showing up to support our mission. We are forever grateful!

Thank you sponsors/partners of the Inaugural JWC Memorial Foundation Golf Tournament

Finally, and most importantly, September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. It is our honor to share stories from ovarian cancer fighters and survivors giving hope that they too can beat this horrible disease is essential. If you or someone you know would like to share your story of hope, please contact us at It is important that women and families impacted by ovarian cancer get the support they need, to have HOPE in this fight. Stay connected to us on social media @jwcmemorial – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and our website for the latest on what we are doing in the community.

Until then…

All the best,
