Breast cancer is estimated to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia, with one in seven women diagnosed by age 85. It is estimated that 55 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer every day in 2021.
Esperance & Co are delighted to announce our partnership with the McGrath Foundation, an organization that raises money to place specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses wherever they are required around Australia.
The support of a McGrath Breast Care Nurse is available for free, regardless of whether you are in the public or private health system. It is as simple as visiting mcgrathfoundation.com.au and finding the nurse nearest to you.
The McGrath Foundation funds 162 McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia, supporting over 95,000 families since 2005. It costs around $140,000 to fund a McGrath Breast Care Nurse annually.
With the purchase of any of our pink 100% Cashmere Toppers, Esperance & Co will donate 20% of each sale to the McGrath Foundation. Ongoing funding is needed for the 162 McGrath Breast Care Nurses to ensure continued support can be provided to families affected by breast cancer in Australia.
Esperance & Co are thrilled to be able to contribute to the McGrath Foundation, so they can continue with the amazing nurse support they provide to Australian families, as well as increase breast cancer awareness across the country.
