Mark Hughes Foundation


The Mark Hughes Foundation has been formed to raise much needed funds to promote research, heighten awareness & support brain cancer patients and families.

The MHF is a not for profit organisation formed in Newcastle by Mark and Kirralee Hughes following Marks diagnosis with Brain Cancer in 2013.

Mark is a well known and highly respected former Newcastle Knights Rugby League player, business and community identity who is undergoing treatment to fight brain cancer.

Money raised by the Foundation will directly support brain cancer research at the Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI).
