McGrath Breast Care Nurses are there for you when you need it most
At the McGrath Foundation, we raise money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses who provide invaluable support and care to women and men experiencing breast cancer. From diagnosis right throughout treatment, McGrath Breast Care Nurses are available to help individuals and their families for free and with no referral.
A breast cancer diagnosis changes your life, often in ways you wouldn’t expect. The impact can be felt right through your family and friends. As much as you try, the diagnosis, the treatment and the disease can take over your life.
Our McGrath Breast Care Nurses bring you and your family peace of mind through expert knowledge, personal care and genuine compassion. They can help you create time in your life not defined by breast cancer.

“Helen’s support so far has been invaluable. Coping would have been much harder because there are a lot of unanswered questions when you leave the surgeon.” – Tracey
Why we help
The support of a McGrath Breast Care Nurse can substantially improve the quality of care someone receives in many ways. From fewer specialist appointments, and less time at each appointment, improved understanding and clarity, to more confidence and reduced anxiety.
“The most important thing I do for my patients is ensure that they and their families feel supported, have timely access to care and get the right information as needed, helping them navigate their way through the often complex world of hospitals and cancer.” – Kerryn, McGrath Breast Care Nurse
You can help
