We have changed our name from Cure Our Ovarian Cancer to the Ovarian Cancer Foundation NZ » Read More


Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month is held every February in New Zealand and provides an opportunity to educate, advocate and fundraise for ovarian cancer.

This year we challenge you to sign up to our Step Up for Ovarian Cancer challenge to make a difference to women living with ovarian cancer in New Zealand.

Why you should step up for ovarian cancer

Every day one kiwi woman is diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and we lose another woman every 34 hours.

Ovarian cancer is the least survivable of all women’s cancers, killing more women than all the other gynaecological cancers combined, yet it continues to be one of the least known, least funded and least researched cancers.

When you step up you’re helping us improve ovarian cancer today, while supporting transformational research to find the cure of tomorrow.
