McGrath High TeaOctober 4, 2016
On Friday 30th September 2016, Ego Pharmaceuticals joined the McGrath Foundation at their Signature High Tea, held at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.
The ballroom was filled with close to 500 people dressed with splashes of pink, who were all there to donate and support the amazing and practical work of the McGrath Foundation. Since 2005, the McGrath Foundation has funded 110 McGrath Breast Care Nurses, who have supported more than 49,000 families through breast cancer.
Breast Cancer survivor and advocate Ramona Freedman shared a heartfelt and candid snippet into her journey fighting breast cancer, touching every single person in the room and connecting with everyone that has had any part to play in a similar journey.
In between enjoying the delicious assortment of cakes and savourydelights, the audience was also treated to a panel discussion with panel members, Tracy Bevan (McGrath Foundation Ambassador & Director), Kate Ritchie (our very own QV Ambassador, televisionand radio personality) and Kerry Patford (a McGrath Breast Care Nurse). The outtake of the panel discussion was the importance of how breast awareness can contribute to early detection of breast cancer and better health outcomes for everyone.
Jane McGrath and her best friend Tracy Bevan, Ambassador and Director of the McGrath Foundation, hosted a high tea as one of the Foundation’s first fundraising initiatives. The McGrath Foundation continues to host high teas as a way to connect with supporters and raise much needed funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia.
With the month of October being focused on Breast Cancer awareness QV Skincare have launched a new product QV Self Check Breast Cream, designed to encourage and remind women to self-check their breasts. The product is available exclusively from pharmacy nationally and $2 from every pack purchased will be donated to the McGrath Foundation.
