The McGrath Breast Care Nurse program continues to promote its success stories in supporting women with breast cancer and their families, this time marking the three year anniversary of the McGrath Breast Care Nurse role at Gympie in Queensland.
The McGrath Foundation has confirmed that McGrath Breast Care Nurse Sharon Shelford has supported more than 275 Gympie women experiencing breast cancer since she took up her role at the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service Gympie Hospital.
Providing physical, psychological and emotional support to local breast cancer sufferers as well as their families and carers, Sharon’s care begins from the time of diagnosis and continues throughout treatment.
"I am in the privileged position of being able to step into people's lives and help by providing information
and support at all stages of the breast cancer experience," Sharon reportedly told the Gympie Times.
"Feedback from families is one of relief that their loved one has the support of a McGrath Breast Care Nurse and their appreciation makes the work worthwhile."
Sharon's position was established by the McGrath Foundation in May 2009 and made possible thanks to the Federal Government's grant of $12 million over four years to the McGrath Foundation to recruit, train and place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in 44 locations across Australia.
Co-founded by Jane and Glenn McGrath after Jane's initial recovery from breast cancer, the McGrath Foundation aims to funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities though out Australia and increase breast awareness in younger women.
To date the McGrath Foundation has helped support more than16,000 Australian families experiencing breast cancer, with 77 McGrath Breast Care Nurses working in communities right across Australia. There are McGrath Breast Care Nurses located in areas as far reaching as Hervey Bay to Geraldton (WA), Armidale (NSW) and Warrnambool (Vic).
