WALKING through the front doors of Ipswich's BreastScreen you're more than likely to be greeted by Karen Miles's smiling face.

Ms Miles is responsible for putting smiles on the faces of Ipswich breast cancer patients and their families.

Additionally, Karen provides year-round physical, psychological and emotional support for those affected by breast cancer.

Ms Miles is often asked whether she finds her work depressing, but insists it's the opposite.

"It's a very uplifting job," Ms Miles said. "We look after women from diagnosis to treatment and beyond."

As the season of giving takes full flight, she is encouraging Ipswich people to give to the McGrath Foundation.

Donations contribute to employing and training more full-time breast care nurses, which costs $350,000 over a minimum of three years.

Adding a splash of pink this Christmas will allow the McGrath Foundation on its mission to have 150 McGrath Breast Care Nurses nationwide.
