Mark Hughes Foundation Beanie for Brain Cancer

Hughes Family

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, which we launched in March 2014, 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 received less than 5% of government cancer research funding.

We set out to help change this. Since we first came up with the idea to sell beanies to raise funds for research back in 2014 we have sold close to 500,000 beanies and raised millions of dollars for brain cancer research and funded Brain Cancer Care nurses in regional Australia. Our annual Beanie Campaign is our major fundraiser and makes a big difference to brain cancer patients and their families today… and into the future. But there is still a long way to go. There are too many people suffering and dying from brain cancer and funding research is the only way we change this. So we are thinking out of the box and have some big ideas that we hope will make a big impact... so watch this space! We’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, as we launch our 2021 Beanie for Brain Cancer campaign, we need you more than ever! Unfortunately brain cancer doesn’t take a break so, we must continue to raise awareness and raise the funds that allows our brilliant scientists to continue researching and our wonderful Brain Cancer Care nurses to keep caring. We’re so proud of how far we’ve come with just a small dedicated team and a band of passionate volunteers.

We understand times are tough right now but, if you’re in a position to support us during this trying time, that would be amazing and we appreciate your support - more than ever! There’s lots of ways you can show your support… go to an NRL Beanie Round game, host a beanie fundraiser at your school, your work, or with friends, or simply donate on line. Stay tuned via our socials, check in through the website, or sign up for the newsletter.

But one thing is for certain, you can Buy a Beanie right here on our website (and from selected IGA and Lowes stores)!

Take care of each other and thanks again for helping us tackle brain cancer.

Thanks, Mark Hughes and the MHF Team
