Also, sharing knowledge of her updated skills with current lymphatic drainage course. Sharon is the most compassionate person & she loves her job. She went above & beyond call. I couldn’t have been more blessed”

 

McGrath Breast Care Nurses: Monica Jessop in Wagga & Eva Larson in Cootamundra / Young, NSW

“I had contact with 2 McGrath nurses one in Wagga where I had all my treatment; she was amazing & I couldn’t have done it without her. She came to all my chemo sessions. She then referred me to my local McGrath nurse at Cootamundra whom I have kept in touch with. She is truly wonderful, supportive, helpful & I would miss her terribly if she moved. No matter how sick, sore or frightened I have been, I have never felt alone”
