My 9yr old son battles DIPG from march 2016- december 2016 and ended up losing his battle on december 5th. During our hard times as a single mother of 3, Mission4Maureen was amazing at helping us with bills and also sent gifts for my son. A very wonderful organization that i would highly recommend to others. They were amazing people, even tho i never personally met them but just thru emails was always so caring and polite
I thank God for Mission4Maureen and Rosie. My Brother in Law was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. My husband and I realized the only priority was to try to save his life. This came with a huge expense. We found our self’s spending every cent we had on healthy food, depends. Medications, cloths that could not be cleaned due to the lack of body functions: Our water bill increased because he had to shower him more then once a day, our heating bill increased because we had to keep our brother in a warm environment at all times, Our electricity bill increased because of medical equipment was being utilized day and night, and we could not afford to make our car payment and the transportation was needed. As a result we began to face financial hardship. The Cancer Center in Marietta Ga gave us the information to Mission4Maureen. When I called they were so pleasant. All of our financial need was taken care of. I was so surprise Mission4Maureen did not procrastinate. All of our stress dissipated this gave us the opportunity to just focus on our brother. They have really been a blessing to us. Mission4Maureen paid almost $2.000.00 in bills for us when we had no way of paying them. I cried tears of joy, because no one has ever been so supportive. I want to say to the world please continue to support Mission4Maureen. One Day I pray I will be able to give back to this organization. At this time I have an organization called the voice of the homeless. I do not make any money but I am able to give my love and support to the homeless through out the Atlanta area. I find shelter for the homeless. My prayer is that I would have a major facility not only to house them but to change their life for ever. Mission4Maureen has inspired me even more to continue the Voice of The Homeless community out reach that I have been blessed to have. A couple of Videos of the voice of the homeless are on YouTube. To find them go to (Untitled the Voice of the Homeless in the ATL GA)
I cannot thank you enough for the patience, support and assistance you showed through the application process of Ms. Powell and most importantly Hope. This case was one that truly touched my heart. When you read the letter concerning Hope and what she has been through in her life, it is heartbreaking to know that children are experiencing this in their young lives.
Hope is the reason and example of why I became a Social Worker to be a voice for those who have none or find assistance for those in need, who otherwise would not receive none. So I thank you for having the same compassion. Without your help with this case, Hope despite all she has been through would be homeless this evening, while we sleep in our home and bed tonight.
So I thank you (Rosie), Larry and the organization Mission4Maureen for keeping a roof over Hope's head and providing assistance that one one else could do.
So Rosie I am sending you a "Have a nice day and a sleep good night sleep" tonight knowing that you made a difference in someone else's life.

I am so grateful for Mission4Maureen. They were able to provide assistance to my mother by paying rent for a month for her. She was diagnosed with a grade 4 brain tumor in July of 2015. It is a miracle she is still alive, but the bills are mounting every day. She was laid off from her job in April and she isn't old enough to qualify for medicare. We are paying COBRA premiums of almost $1,000 a month. She also has to live in a senior facility that can provide assistance, which is not cheap. I was able to take a huge breath when we received notification that they could help. They were prompt in their reply and had the rent check in the mail the next day. I can not say enough good things about them or ever thank them enough!
Caring for a child with a brain tumor is exhausting and makes it very difficult to work a regular job. Mission 4 Maureen helped cover the cost of living expenses, so that I could take care of my little girl in her last days. She passed away after five years of treatments. Dealing with some of the other programs out there means a mountain of forms and letters from hospitals and social workers. There was no hassle, just a form, and a brief discussion of how best they could help.
I want to thank ya so much for helping me paid my rent.
I have a daughter with brain cancer and is hard for me not able to work.
If it wasent for nice people like Mission4Maureen i dont know how i would paid my rent.
Thank you so much god bless this organization
My 10 year old son has a brain tumor and many other medical issues he has been battling since birth, Mission 4 Maureen has been a god send, they helped cover expenses I was unable to meet. This is such an amazing company, they truly helped take away the stress from me and my family. They have not only extending a helping hand but sent forth much heart to care for others in need.
My husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2012. Our family was very scared about what to do, where to go, how to start. Everything was very quick, and my husband was unable to continue with his life evendough he kept everything for himself and never complained about anything regarding his situation. His left periferal vision was compromised and he was unable to continue driving and he was forced to quick to his job. All our dreams were jepardize in silence we were recently married and we were very scared. Thank God they were good and exciting news in a middle of this difficult time, specially because I was pregnant and we didn't know that at the same time we were facing this big challenge in our lives. I never thought my husband condition will be at risk and everything was under control the first year, he also was proud to be a new daddyand the bonding he had with his little princess was priceless, life for us was even more meaningful and he was really hoping to have enough time to be around his family. My husband was day by day, hour by hou online looking for answers, treatments, oncologist, neurologist, Duke, New York, Jhon Hopkins University of Miami... he never lose hope, specially after contacted mission4maureen who help us to manage our difficult time. They help us financially, they gaves orientation and all the supportwe need to continue with the journey we have a head specially with a new baby and with my husband facing treatment with Chemo adn radiation.
my husband also share and post all about mission 4 maureen try to help with funds to support this great nonprofit. Unfortunately this disease took my husband's life after 3 years after his diagnosed and 4 months after his recurrence., it has been very sad and difficult to me to be a widow and to raise a 3 1/2 years old girl without daddy around, she still asking for her daddy when he is coming back from the doctor...I lost my family no family but I didn't lost the respect and love to all who have being through all this painfull illness joirney. my heart is with all people who needs support, every minute a family out there is probably facing the same situation We did, and thank's to mission4maureee many people with a loveone facing a brain tumor won't be alone is this journey. Thanks mission4 maureen for gave us hope even in the most difficult moments of our lives. G- d Bless you always and I hope you can continue with the holy work !
My baby was diagnosed with brain cancer at 10 months old. On Jan7,2016 our lives completely changed there were so many thing to get sorted out and it was hard being in the hospital for so long. Mission4Maureen is such a blessing.I sent an email and they immediately responded they paid 950 in child care and my past due car insurance bill. All I can say is thank you so much because I didn't know how I was going pay another bill.With no hesitation they blessed us and the burden was lifted.God Bless you all and everyone who donated,because of you I am able to be here with my baby boy and one less bill on my mind.
My four year old nephew was suffering from DIPG, a brain stem tumor. My brother was spending all his free time with his son and bills needed to be paid. Mission for Maureen assisted him at a very stressful and difficult time. We are forever grateful.
