Mother's Day

While it may be a little harder to catch up with Mum this Mother’s Day, there’s still plenty of ways you can make her feel extra special – 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 (virtually of course!) – your support will help us continue to fund our 143 McGrath Breast Care Nurses supporting families across Australia.

"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.

Talking with teens about breast cancer

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 your breasts

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.
