“I want to share my daughter’s story so you can see the difference your support makes”

“The day you receive a call to say your daughter has breast cancer is a day you will never forget.”

“We all have grand plans for our children. We raise them, we nurture them, we teach them right and wrong. Then we send them out into the world to live their best lives while we look forward to weddings, grandchildren and all the other fun stuff.  But one phone call can change everything.

My name is Caron. I received that call in mid 2018. My daughter Danielle, then only 28, had been diagnosed with breast cancer. My whole world crashed in an instant.

Danielle was like any other twenty-something…

McGrath Breast Care Nurse Catrina and her young patient Danielle

Meet Catrina

“Our most trusted source of information, advice and reassurance…

Catrina, our pink-haired McGrath Breast Care Nurse helped us navigate the roller coaster ahead. She’s helped Danielle live her best life – ensuring medical appointments are scheduled around Danielle’s work, and helping to make her feel confident with practical and emotional support.

My daughter knows that without Catrina her breast cancer experience would have been very different. If only every family could have a McGrath Breast Care Nurse by their side.”
