The UNC Lineberger Center in Chapel Hill has named a room in honor of Beth Quinn, co-founder and president of the She Rocks Foundation.
 
Quinn launched She Rocks in 2014, a few months after she was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer.
 
She Rocks exists to bring awareness to ovarian cancer through funding groundbreaking research and by helping women who are undergoing treatment for cancer. The organization is committed to these pursuits and gives every penny that it takes in toward these goals, officials said.
 
“Wilmington is notorious for helping others,” Quinn said. “We were put on this Earth to do good and to help others. We were put here to make a difference.”
 
In a little over two years, She ROCKS has raised almost $550,000. The money goes toward funding research into ovarian cancer and brings attention to the disease.
 
The organization has given $315,000 to UNC Lineberger for ovarian cancer research.
