Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s the month we invite everyone to Pink Up to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation to show support for individuals and their families experiencing breast cancer. The funds raised help fund
McGrath Breast Care Nurses throughout the country.
We would like to thank the hundreds of community fundraisers and businesses who got behind us in October 2018. Your support was incredible!

“I cannot find the words to describe how my McGrath Breast Care Nurse supported me and my family through my three cancer diagnoses. I truly believe I could not have coped without her support. I love and respect her so much.“
