We need your help!
Dear WOCA Supporter,
I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. After an in-depth review of our options and input from you this past spring, we made the difficult decision to cancel two of our largest fundraising events: “A Toast to Teal” and “The Survivors' Brunch”. In addition to the cancellation of these two events, we also made the decision to go virtual for our September run/walks. These decisions have not been made lightly. Not only because we know how many people enjoy the events, but also understanding the number of women we serve as a result of these fundraisers.
Although many parts of our lives may seem like they have been paused, a woman is still diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer every 24 minutes. WOCA needs your help to continue our mission of providing education, support, and funding of research for Ovarian Cancer throughout Wisconsin.
Every day, your support makes stories like Brooke’s possible.
Brooke – a 24 year old survivor from Beloit, WI received financial support through WOCA’s “Teal in Need – In Memory of Cathy Mislinski” Financial Benefit Program. Brooke stated, “When the world seems so different right now, I have felt the support of WOCA and this monetary support will be helping me at a time I really need it. Thank you so much for this generous donation that went towards one of my many medical bills. It is a lift off my shoulders. Thanks for all that you do."
Please consider a donation to help offset the loss of income from our annual spring fundraisers. Would you consider making a $100 donation to help us meet our goal? Your support makes a real, lasting impact on those affected by this devastating cancer. The need is more urgent than ever and it is vital to have your help to make this happen.
All donation amounts are appreciated! For donations made of $100 or more, you will be entered into a raffle to win (Winners will be chosen and contacted on August 3rd, 2020):
A 2019 Silkscreen Green Bay Packers Autographed Football and Display Case – Valued @ Priceless
A Family Fun Package (Movie Passes, Restaurant Gift Cards, Milwaukee Zoo Passes, Shedd Aquarium Passes, Noah's Ark Passes, and more!) – Valued @ over $600!
On behalf of our survivors, THANK YOU for trusting WOCA with your funding and for your continued support of our organization. Without your support, we are unable to help the women of Wisconsin and the families affected by this difficult diagnosis.
