Why more breast care nurses? The McGrath Foundation raised $1.3 million during the pink test to fund 119 breast cancer nurses. - There are well over 300 breast cancer nurses working across Australia - There are currently only 28 prostate cancer nurses working in Australia although this will increase to 43 with $13 million in promised new Federal government funding. - Last year the Federal government gave $20 million to the McGrath Foundation.
More men dying of cancer than women - Fifty seven per cent of cancer deaths in Australia are male. - 1 in 4 males will die from cancer before 85 compared to 1 in 6 females. - In 2017 there were 3,452 deaths due to prostate cancer compared to 3,087 breast cancer deaths in women.
