About the McGrath Foundation


At the McGrath Foundation, we raise money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses who provide invaluable support and care to women and men experiencing breast cancer. From diagnosis right throughout treatment, McGrath Breast Care Nurses are available to help individuals and their families for free and with no referral.

No cancer treatment is without its challenges, but this is where a McGrath Breast Care Nurse can help. They listen, guide and support people with breast cancer and their families every day through meaningful conversations, advice and quality care.

A McGrath Breast Care Nurse builds an important relationship with each person they support. They become a trusted, consistent and knowledgeable point of contact. As professional and qualified nurses they care for people with both early and metastatic breast cancer, across both public and private health services. They are available for free and without a referral. It’s as simple as checking our website and finding your nearest nurse.

FAQs

What is included in the kit?

Included is a set of wooden Pink Stumps and bails and 13 bandanas. You don’t have to order a Pink Stumps Day kit to fundraise – every dollar makes a difference. But if you do commit to raising $500 and don’t make that target, please be aware that as a charity, we’ll have to invoice you for the difference. We want everything you raise to go towards McGrath Breast Care Nurses.

How long does it take for my Pink Stumps to arrive?

Please allow 7-10 business days for delivery within Australia. If you haven't received your Pink Stumps in this time, please get in touch with the fundraising team.
