The Mimi Ullens Foundation supports cancer patients solely through the generosity of its donors. We receive no subsidies. It is only with your support that this year again we are able to improve the quality of life of over 17,000 people suffering from cancer.
The therapeutic well-being care that we offer has a genuine and significant impact on increasing chances of a cure
A truth understood by the medical corps and demonstrated by an increasing number of studies which confirm the beneficial effects of the kind of care we offer to patients weakened by cancer.
The care offered to patients is entirely free of charge and without limit
IIt is offered to all – men and women – regardless of their type of cancer or their social level.
Our approach has a positive effect on the family (spouses, children...) as well as on the medical corps
Their loved ones benefit from the care provided by the Mimi Ullens Foundation through psychological support. They are also among the first to enjoy at first hand the well-being of their spouse, parent or simply friend. The carers, too, deeply appreciate the supportive care provided by the Mimi Ullens Foundation.
They feel reassured that they can entrust the supportive care that is so important for sufferers to a professional team.
It leaves the medical corps the freedom to concentrate on its job and work calmly because of the lack of stress.
Our well-being centres are based on an innovative idea that is unique in Europe
The Mimi Ullens Foundation is the only institution to strike directly at the heart of the illness and its cure through its establishment of well-being centres right within hospital oncology departments. The care provided in the centres is delivered by professionals who are specifically trained to support patients who suffer from cancer.
The specific nature of the Foundation is also to be seen in the arrangement and decor of its premises: spaces designed to promote relaxation in order to combat the stressful atmosphere of the hospital.
