Cure Our Ovarian Cancer raises funds to support ovarian cancer.

Awareness and advocacy: We engage in ovarian cancer education and advocacy in New Zealand. Ovarian Cancer is the 5th most common cause of cancer death. Yet 90% of women can't name a single symptom before they are diagnosed. We focus on cost-effective targeted campaigns. In 2020, this included distributing symptoms posters to every GP practice in NZ, news articles, a parliament petition (https://ovariancancer.co.nz for more info) and securing sponsorship for a month long national awareness billboard campaign.

Research: Low-grade serous ovarian cancer disproportionately affects younger women and has poor survival. It's a cancer that hasn't traditionally received a lot of attention and support - before we were founded in 2018 there wasn't any published way to donate to research on it, in the world. Research is crucial to find better treatments to help women live longer. We've funded two projects so far in NZ, and also support overseas researchers.

We know your donations are precious - which is why we try to privately fund overheads where possible - in 2018/2019 100% of the funds we received, with the exception of payment processing fees, were dedicated to research. Our charity number is CC55925. You can find our annual reports on the Charities Register: https://www.charities.govt.nz
