National firm Hunt & Hunt Lawyers (H&H) has become a corporate partner of the McGrath Foundation.
The McGrath Foundation funds breast-care nurses to do the important work of supporting people diagnosed with breast cancer and their families.
They are a specialist team of nurses throughout Australia who provide, without charge, physical, psychological, and emotional support — from diagnosis through treatment, rehabilitation, and follow-up.
At their International Nurses Day celebration, the McGrath Foundation announced its commitment to fund another 250 nurses by 2025, to add to their 185 currently providing care.
H&H team members attended their event, listening to breast cancer survivors and supporters of the foundation. H&H noted the moving story told by Emily Quinlan, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 25. She spoke about the incredible support of her ‘angel’ care nurse, who helped her through the process.
The firm said that supporting such an important cause will allow them to make a difference to Australian families experiencing breast cancer.
NSW managing partner at H&H Brett Hearnden said: “The partners and staff of Hunt & Hunt are committed to exercising social responsibility in all aspects of our work.
“We act to contribute to the community through a number of channels. Becoming a corporate partner to the McGrath Foundation is an important step for us.
“Most Australians have some personal link to a diagnosis of cancer and the effects of its treatment on someone special. We have chosen the McGrath Foundation as part of our social responsibility commitment because its highly trained team of nurses helps support those living with cancer, and those they love.”
McGrath Foundation ambassador and director Tracy Bevan said: “We are excited to welcome Hunt & Hunt lawyers as our newest corporate partner. Our corporate partners play a huge role in helping us meet our goal of 250 McGrath breast care nurses by 2025.
“This will get us one step closer to ensuring that no one in Australia goes through breast cancer without the care of a breast care nurse.”
