Talk Peach is a registered New Zealand charity founded by and run by survivors and those whose lives have been affected by ovarian cancer.

Our vision is to inform New Zealanders on gynaecological disease and connect and support those who are diagnosed.

There are major gaps in public awareness

1 person dies every 48 hours in New Zealand from Ovarian Cancer alone, that's higher than our road toll, yet conversations around it remain deafeningly silent.

The survival rate for ovarian cancer sits at 39%, breast cancer used to have a similar outlook but now thanks to incredible advocacy, large scale fundraising and an immense amount of research, public support and awareness the breast cancer survival rate now sits at 91% when detected via a mammogram.

Talk Peach acknowledges and applauds the tremendous outcomes in the fight against breast cancer and believe that with similar commitment and resources we can achieve the same success for ovarian cancer.

85% of those diagnosed with ovarian cancer are diagnosed in the later stages of the disease, this is a shocking statistic and again one that desperately needs to change. With ovarian cancer women like us literally don't live long enough to form the advocates that our breast cancer whanau have done so incredibly.

We need to break down the stigma stopping life saving conversations; tomorrow we lose another wahine to this insidious disease.

Many people believe that a cervical screening covers their gynaecological health yet it screens only for changes to the cervix, not the other 4 gynaecological cancers. We have to start having life-saving conversations about gynaecological health, staying silent is harming our communities.

Our mission moving forward is to:

To provide support and education on gynaecological health

To educate the community on the signs and symptoms of the 5 gynaecological cancers in order to reduce late stage diagnosis

To provide information and support to all women diagnosed with gynaecological cancers

To support much needed research into gynaecological cancer treatment and cures

Please help us break the stigma around gynaecological disease, getting diagnosed with one is isolating, we know we have been there. It's time to TALK PEACH.
