We all know or know of someone impacted by breast cancer and have witnessed the suffering endured by the person affected and those close to them. It can be difficult to know how to assist.
After experiencing the impact that breast care nurses can have on a patient’s physical and mental wellbeing during and after treatment Jane McGrath became a supportive advocate.
In 2002 Glenn and Jane McGrath founded the McGrath Foundation, a charitable organisation dedicated to raising money to fund more breast care nurses in rural and regional Australia, and to increase breast awareness in young women. The foundation has so far raised over $12 million, and as of July 2012 has funded 77 McGrath Breast Care Nurses, who have supported over 16,000 Australian families experiencing breast cancer.
Fisk & Nagle recognizes the work of The McGrath Foundation and the positive contribution that the Foundation has made to Australian families. As part of our corporate sponsorship plan Fisk & Nagle are pleased to be able to sponsor The McGrath Foundation. We hope that in our small way we can help assist the Foundation to achieve their objectives of funding more breast care nurses in rural and regional Australia and to increase breast awareness in young women.
Donations can be made via the McGrath website at www.mcgrathfoundation.com.au or for an easy way to support the Foundation go to our Sponsorcrib campaign and ‘like’ Fisk & Nagle on Facebook. For every ‘like’ we receive we will donate $1 to the McGrath Foundation.
