Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s the month we invite everyone to ‘Pink Up’ to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation to show support for individuals and their families experiencing breast cancer.  The funds raised help fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses throughout the country.

Get involved and 'Pink Up'...

I cannot find the words to describe how my McGrath Breast Care Nurse supported me and my family through my three cancer diagnoses. I truly believe I could not have coped without her support. I love and respect her so much.
