About us

 

Our Mission

Peace of Mind Foundation is a not for profit organisation created to give support, courage and community to brain cancer patients, their carers, family and loved ones. 

 

Our vision

We are driven by a commitment to provide practical, emotional and financial support nationwide that aims to alleviate the stress and demands of a brain cancer diagnosis. By facilitating shared experiences, we create opportunities for ‘our community’ to connect.

A different angle

We understand the stress, anxiety and journey that brain cancer patients, their families and loved ones go through. To manage these and create opportunity for the other important things in life, our services focus on providing supportive care for patients and their families across 4 key areas:

Counselling & Wellbeing →

Financial Assistance →

Home Services →

Retreats & Community Events →

Whilst we are not an organisation that undertakes research in brain cancer, we fully support all organisations and funds raised in the mission to find a cure. It is our hope that by tackling brain cancer from both angles, we can achieve the greatest support for everyone who comes into touch with the diagnosis.

Why we got started

Having lived through emotional and pragmatic challenges of a family member with brain cancer; Bec and her brother Clint founded the organisation to provide the much needed and often difficult to find support and care for patients and family. The organisation was created in honor of Clint’s wife and Bec’s sister-in-law, Caroline Maree Matthews.
