There’s plenty of ways you can make your mum feel extra special this Mother’s Day – while also helping support other mums and their families experiencing breast cancer. Whether you make a donation, purchase a very special pink product, or fundraise – your support will help us continue to fund our 185 McGrath Breast Care Nurses supporting families across Australia.
Make a donation
Donate in lieu of a gift and not only will you make a difference in the life of another mum, we’ll send you a personalised e-card that you can forward onto Mum!
Buy a gift
Treat mum to a special gift that she can sport with pride by shopping pink or purchasing one of our partner’s products.
Host a high tea, morning tea or just pink up together with the family. Fundraise your way by coming together to celebrate Mum!
Have a convo
Mums are a wise bunch. That’s why we always encourage mums and daughters to have a conversation about the importance of being more breast aware and improving breast health understanding.
Support the brands that support us!
The Happy Hair Brush makes brushing knotty, matted or crazy hair drama free. No more tears and fights to brush hair. Not only are they changing mum’s lives, they are helping raise much needed funds for McGrath Breast Care Nurses by donating $10 for every pink & hot pink paddle and $8 every pink mini brush.
“It’s so important for mums to have a conversation with their daughters about being breast aware”
Did you know that while half of Aussie women believe that mums are best placed to raise breast health with their daughters, less than a quarter have had this discussion?
Reflecting on how her mother’s cancer experience inspired her to become a nurse, McGrath Breast Care Nurse, Sam Burns, reminds us of the importance of mothers and daughters having conversations about breast health this Mother’s Day.
So start a conversation with some useful information!
Breast cancer: risks and myths
With so much information out there, sometimes it can be difficult to determine what is and is not a genuine risk factor for breast cancer.
Tips for talking with teens
As parents, plenty of us struggle with tricky topics but research reinforces the need for mums to have conversations with their daughters about their breast health.
How to check
One of the most important health decisions you can make for yourself is committing to being breast aware and regularly checking your breasts.
