ABOUT THE MCGRATH FOUNDATION
The McGrath Foundation raises funds to support people with breast cancer by providing specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses where they are most needed across Australia.
The Foundation currently funds 162 nurses who provide essential physical and emotional support free of charge to anyone experiencing breast cancer and their families from diagnosis and throughout their treatment.
Breast cancer is estimated to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia (1 in 7 women will be diagnosed in their lifetime) and as the rate of diagnoses increases, so too does the need for more McGrath Breast Care Nurses.
Ongoing funding is needed for our 162 McGrath Breast Care Nurses to ensure they can continue to provide support to families experiencing breast cancer across Australia.
