Talk Peach

1 New Zealander dies every 24 hours from a gynaecological cancer.

Nationwide

Talk Peach is a registered New Zealand charity founded by and run by ovarian cancer survivors.

We know all too well the devastation that comes with this diagnosis and the heartbreaking feeling of being overlooked.

Talk Peach are desperate to educate and break down the stigma stopping life-saving conversations.

There are major gaps in public awareness.

1 New Zealander dies every 24 hours from 1 of the 5 gynaecological cancers, that's higher than our road toll.

The survival rate for ovarian cancer sits at 37%, 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 10 year breast cancer survival rate now sits at 92% 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 gynaecological cancers.

“In 10 years time, I don’t want to see that nothing has changed, I can’t bear to see more and more New Zealanders dying of gynaecological cancers, of something they had never heard of, never knew the signs for, or that remain so underfunded in all aspects of the disease (support, education and research). It breaks my heart over and over feeling like I got cancer that no one can talk about” -Tash Crosby Ovarian cancer survivor and Talk Peach Founder

We have to start having life-saving conversations about gynaecological health, staying silent is harming our communities. We desperately need gynaecological cancers to be funded and spoken openly about.

Our mission moving forward is to:

To provide education on gynaecological health

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

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

To support those involved with life-saving research into gynaecological cancer treatment and cures.

To advocate for better funding into: education and awareness, research, clinical trials, access to medications, and better pathways to diagnostic testing.

Please help us put gynaecological cancer in the spotlight. We don’t receive any government funding. Your support is imperative to supporting the lives of those diagnosed, educating, raising awareness and advocating for change.
