Our mission

To provide patients with support

Beauty, well-being and dignity are an integral part of cancer. We offer patients, if only for an hour or just a few minutes, a moment of relaxation and abandon during which they can forget their illness and replenish their resources to fight it. We provide care for patients that enables them to preserve their self-esteem, their courage and their strength that are essential to overcoming the disease. We support them throughout their treatment.

Care and cure

Treatment for cancer is often heavy-handed. Reducing the unpleasant side-effects enables patients to learn to live with the disease and increase their chances of a cure. By improving patients' quality of life during treatment, we help them to focus on their physical and mental well-being. Being more relaxed and better in body and mind, they will have greater strength to continue the fight.

Bring warmth and comfort

We act by creating wellness centres located within hospital oncology departments. The atmosphere of calm and warmth that pervades is radically different from that of a hospital. Our help also makes it possible to overcome loneliness and solitude through the warm and friendly welcome provided by our specially trained professional staff.

ORGANISATION

Created in Belgium in December 2004, in the form of a private foundation, the Mimi Ullens Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors acutely aware of the problems of cancer and in particular of its effect on patients.

The Directors are wholly convinced of the need to provide aid and comfort to all those who are confronted by this terrible illness, giving priority to those who lack the necessary financial resources to fight the disease with dignity and serenity. So that all are better able to cope with cancer.
