"My name is Natalie and I'm a Registered Nurse in Cancer and Blood Disorders Ambulatory Care at the Gold Coast University Hospital. I feel so incredibly honoured and privileged to have the opportunity to care for the most resilient, determined, and inspirational patients every day. With support of the MooGoo Nursing Scholarship, I will be completing a post graduate certificate in Breast Cancer Nursing with my future endeavours to be a Breast Care Nurse for the McGrath foundation. My goal is to ensure that every patient I care for is provided with specialist, compassionate, and world class clinical care where patient's feels supported, advocated for, and empowered in their cancer journey."



"My name is Diana and I am a Clinical Nurse working in Radiation Oncology at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. I have worked as an oncology nurse for 25+ years, and for the last 6 years I have been caring for patients with high-grade glioma and their carers. I have commenced a Master of Science by Research through Flinders University, with a plan to articulate to a PhD in 2023, with my focus being to improve support for carers of people with high-grade glioma."



"Jessica Hammersley is a Lecturer in Nursing for the University of Tasmania and a Registered Nurse at the Royal Hobart Hospital, specialising in the area of oncology. She is a PhD candidate, and her study focuses on understanding how young adults living with cancer in rural settings experience and navigate their cancer journey. She is a passionate nurse, educator and her goal is to make a difference in the life of her cancer patients."



"I have been a nurse for over 14 years and have dedicated my nursing career to working in oncology. I have had experience working in both public and private sectors working in the inpatient and outpatient settings, as a nurse specialist, cancer support nurse, a clinical trials coordinator and as a clinical nurse consultant in breast care. Currently, I work as a McGrath metastatic breast care nurse and have the privilege of holding the co-chair position for the CNSA Victoria and Tasmania State Group Committee. I continually further myself through education and have completed postgraduate studies with a certificate in breast cancer nursing and a diploma in cancer and palliative care. I am currently completing a Masters in Advanced Nursing Practice to become a nurse practitioner and continually strive to improve patient outcomes in oncology."



"I have been a cancer care nurse for over 12 years. During this time, I have worked in various nursing roles from direct patient care, clinical nurse educator, clinical nurse consultant and associate nurse unit manager, all connected to the care of patients with a cancer diagnosis. My passion is to deliver the best care possible to cancer patients and their families. This is why I have enrolled in a Master of Nurse Practitioner. Over the next two years I will be developing professionally and exploring models of cancer care in Tasmania. I am grateful to Craig Jones and the MooGoo team for their generosity in supporting my study. I am so appreciative to have the opportunity."
