“It’s not a secret that we like a challenge so I’m proud to say that many of us at the McGrath Foundation be taking up the mantle and going dry throughout July. Without the work of partners such as Dry July we would not be able to continue to fund essential McGrath Breast Care Nurses and we thank Dry July for their partnership,” said CEO Holly Masters.
“We currently fund 132 McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia but there’s a growing need for more, to ensure every families experiencing breast cancer has access to this vital service.
