The Mark Hughes Foundation is a charity raising funds to support research, raise awareness for brain cancer and support brain cancer patients.

Beanie for Brain Cancer


Save the Date!

Our hugely popular Beanie for Brain Cancer Awareness campaign is scheduled for 19 - 23 June 2017 and we need your help! Grab your school mates or work colleagues and join us to tackle brain cancer. More details and brand new 2017 MHF beanies coming soon so watch this space.


Join us to raise awareness and raise funds for brain cancer..and we'll raise our hats to you.

  • Brain cancer kills more children than any other disease,
  • Brain cancer kills more adults under 40 in Australia than any other cancer,
  • Yet it receives less than 5% of Government cancer funding.

Since launching 'Beanie for Brain Cancer' in 2014, the Foundation has raised over $500,000 for brain cancer research. This year, with your support, we hope to raise even more.
