A LEADING cancer support group is marking a sad milestone today with some welcome news.

Four years to the day after the death of Jane McGrath, the McGrath Foundation is celebrating the funding of the 75th McGrath Breast Care Nurse.

Jane McGrath was the wife of former Test cricketer Glenn McGrath, who created the foundation following Jane's death after a long battle with breast cancer.

The foundation is half way to its goal to getting a breast care nurse for every family experiencing breast cancer.

The 75th McGrath Breast Care Nurse will be based in Dubbo, representing the foundation's strong connection to rural and regional Australia.

Mr McGrath believes funding 75 McGrath Breast Care Nurses in just four years is a testament to the foundation's strong support from the Australian community.

"When we started the foundation in 2005 we never imagined the foundation could have such an enormous impact on the Australian community," Mr McGrath said.
