While it may be a little harder to catch up with Mum this Mother’s Day, there’s still plenty of ways you can make her feel extra special – while also helping support other mums and their families experiencing breast cancer. Whether you make a donation, purchase a very special pink product, or fundraise (virtually of course!) – your support will help us continue to fund our 143 McGrath Breast Care Nurses supporting families across Australia.
Have a convo
Mums are a wise bunch. That’s why we always encourage mums and daughters to have a conversation about the importance of being more breast aware and improving breast health understanding.

"It's so important for mums to have a conversation with their daughters about being breast aware"
Did you know that while half of Aussie women believe that mums are best placed to raise breast health with their daughters, less than a quarter have had this discussion?
Reflecting on how her mother’s cancer experience inspired her to become a nurse, McGrath Breast Care Nurse, Sam Burns, reminds us of the importance of mothers and daughters having conversations about breast health this Mother’s Day.
So start a conversation with some useful information!
Tips for talking with teens
