Helen has been working as a registered nurse in the oncology setting in rural NSW for the last six years. During this time, Helen has worked in the Armidale Oncology Day Unit as a chemotherapy nurse looking after not only breast cancer patients, but all other cancers, including haematology. Helen has been a McGrath Breast Care Nurse since 2009.
‘I jumped at the chance to be a McGrath Breast Care Nurse knowing that the position would be highly valued and needed in this community and that in this role, I would be able to support women and men with breast cancer (and their families), as well as be able to provide accurate information and education. I hope to deliver an extremely high standard of care and support to patients and their families across the Northern tablelands and McIntyre cluster.’
