About Peaches Womb Cancer Trust

 

Peaches Womb Cancer Trust was founded in 2020 by a team of enthusiastic and dedicated researchers, doctors and nurses based at St. Mary’s Hospital in Manchester, who work alongside Professor Emma Crosbie.  Prof. Crosbie has dedicated her career to developing early detection tests, cancer prevention and treatment strategies for endometrial (womb) cancer.

At Peaches Womb Cancer Trust, our aim is to preserve the health and improve the experience of those with or at risk of womb cancer and their families.

We aim to do this by:

N

N

training health care professionals

providing patient education and support resources

We are a new charity with a vision to expand our role and purpose as we grow over the coming years.

Peaches provides equality of services and care to everyone, regardless of people’s age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief or sexual orientation
