Mark Hughes Foundation Beanie for Brain Cancer

It seems an understatement to say that my diagnosis of brain cancer in July 2013 was life changing, and yet it truly was. 

What followed my diagnosis was an overwhelming level of support from family, friends and the community, which helped me to maintain a positive mindset throughout my treatment. It was this support that led my wife Kirralee and I to form the Mark Hughes Foundation, as a way of repaying those who had helped me, and to help others in my position.  

We were astounded to discover the appalling brain cancer statistics in this country and the inexplicable lack of funding for research. You too are probably shocked to know brain cancer kills more children than any other disease, and kills more people under 40 in Australia than any other cancer - yet it receives less than 5% of government cancer research funding.

With your help, we’re raising much needed funds to find a cure for brain cancer, create awareness and support brain cancer patients and their families.

So please, buy a beanie or organise a Beanie Day with your friends, your school, your workmates or your team and get fundraising!

Thanks, Mark Hughes & The MHF Team

Head of the class!

Get your class or school to host a fun Beanie Day, create awareness and raise funds to help us tackle brain cancer.

It’s easy! Pick a date, ideally during beanie week (June 19 – 23), invite all of your students and teachers to wear a beanie, and make a donation. Get the students involved in raising individual funds with prizes for the most money raised.
