My name is Joylene, and I am privileged to be a McGrath Breast Care Nurse based out of Ballarat, Victoria.
I wanted to say thank you for taking on the Dry July challenge and supporting the McGrath Foundation this year. It’s because of your incredible support that the McGrath Foundation is able to fund more McGrath Breast Care Nurses like me, so that no one experiences breast cancer without care.
I see firsthand how important a McGrath Breast Care Nurse is in the lives of so many Australians.
Did you know that this Dry July I joined you in the challenge? I said no to alcohol for 31 days for my health and for my patients and I found that it was a great opportunity to reboot my health!
This year, it is estimated that 55 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer every day. A breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and that's the case now more than ever. The McGrath Foundation currently fund 171 McGrath Breast Care Nurses like me. Together we provide invaluable physical, psychological and emotional support to families navigating the complexities of their breast cancer diagnosis and care.
On behalf of the McGrath Foundation, our patients and their families, we would like to thank you for your support and contribution to making a positive difference in the those experiencing breast cancer.
