Patient Support

Part of the charter of the Mark Hughes Foundation is to provide patient support for Brain Cancer sufferers and their families.

Having lived through the shock of diagnosis and then the heavy toll of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy - I understand how having a medical professional to help navigate the twists and turns of a very scary journey is absolutely invaluable.
