The MHF is focused on brain cancer research in the hope that we will find a cure for brain cancer in the future.
If you need personal or financial assistance, there are various organisations that can provide support for people living with cancer, their families and carers. If you would like more information, please visit the following websites for support:
Brain Tumour Alliance Australia
Brain Tumour Alliance Australia (BTAA) is the national brain tumour patient and carer support organisation in Australia. It was established in late 2008 by a group of brain tumour patients, and current and former carers.
While welcoming the advice and input of specialists, BTAA seeks to represent the brain tumour community from the viewpoint of the patient, their carers, and their families.

Information and support is available for anyone affected by cancer, whether you are a patient, carer, family or friend.
Peer support is available online, through phone contact one on one, or through a telephone support group dedicated to people living with brain cancer. Carers can also access a telephone support group and talk to others in a caring role.
