2022 Beanies - On Sale Now!


A "Beanieficiary" - put simply, is  someone who benefits from these little beanies whether that be today, tomorrow or generations from now. Every cent raised from the sale of MHF beanies goes towards research into brain cancer. The more we can inject into research programs now, means better diagnostics, treatment options and ultimately a cure for brain cancer. These beanies help patients battling brain cancer today and give hope for brain cancer patients of the future. It may not be you - but sadly, it could be your parent, sibling, uncle, your friend, your future child or great grandchild. We all benefit from these little beanies – and our hope for the future is that no one will have to battle this insidious disease.

Please meet some fellow travellers who have joined our crusade to tackle brain cancer. Some are patients currently in treatment,  some have lost loved ones to this disease, there are researchers, surgeons, our MHF Brain Cancer Care nurses and even our benefactors who also believe that together we can make a difference! So please, join us - buy a beanie, organise your own beanie fundraiser, get along to an NRL beanie round game and help us tackle brain cancer!
