Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

When someone is dealing with a brain tumor, it can seem like pressure is coming at you from every side. It hasn't been easy to help our son deal with pain and treatments, help our other children deal with the process, and be strong as a husband and wife together. We are so grateful for Mission4Maureen. They helped with some of the financial pressure we face in a very understanding, simple, and time efficient manner, so that we can focus on our family. Thank you so much!

It is very hard to face a health challenge in your family and to not be able to focus on getting through it as a family because you are facing financial challenges at the same time. Mission4maureen significantly reduced our financial concerns for this month. We can take a breath and just focus on our family. Thank you so much mission4maureen!

Unfortunately I was diagnosed with brain cancer while I was 6 months pregnant. My FMLA was exhausted through work and I lost my position. Mission4Maureen was there to help me with my finances and I could not be more grateful to such a phenomenal organization. The help that they were able to provide gave my husband and I the relief that we needed while we enjoyed our first baby girl; Alyssa. Thank you so much Mission4Maureen from the bottom of our hearts.

So extremely thankful to Mission4Maureen for helping our family with bills that had gotten behind. It's been a long year and a half since our 12 yo son was diagnosed with brain cancer. The stress of a child with a life threatening illness is bad enough, but add on the financial stress that can come from it...well... there are no adequate words of thanks for helping ease our family's stress.

The people behind this were super fast, courteous, so very helpful. God bless you all.

FIVE STARS IS MUCH BELOW THE STANDARD THAT MISSION4MAUREEN WAS UP TO.
THEY WERE VERY EFFICIENT AND QUICK IN RESPONDING TO OUR REQUEST FOR FINANCIAL HELP.
THEY HELPED WITH THE MEDICAL BILLS IN A WAY -HOWEVER IT WAS IN AMOUNT - TO RELIVE PART OF OUR BURDEN.
THANKS TO MISSION 4MAUREEN THAT DOES SUCH EFFICIENT WORK.
AND MANY THANKS AGAIN FOR HELPING MY WIFE WHO HAS A BRAIN LYMPHOMA.

My 12 year old son was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma a brain cancer. I was no longer able to hold a job due to his extreme high dose treatments. I reached out to Mission for Maureen in hopes of some assistance. This organization was beyond helpful and what i appreciated most was i could use my funds at my convenience as long as possible. They made our first few months getting back on our feet incredible. 5 stars is not enough for this organization in my eyes. Extremely satisfied client.

My mom suffered through two years of Glioblastoma, a terminal, non curable form of brain cancer. She was brave and fought hard, but this illness left mom and our family emotionally and physically spent; we were inundated with ceaseless medical bills.

We wanted mom to focus on her health and well being, not to have to fret over bills or failing finances. We turned to several charities and foundations for assistance; the process was daunting. Then I found Mission for Maureen. The request was simple, easy to complete and they requested easy to obtain personal financial documents. Within thirty days they were kind enough to pay one of mom's most pressing medical bills.

We are so grateful to Mission for Maureen for their support of our mom and our family at such a difficult time. I thank them for making my moms road a little bit easier.

There can never be a more difficult moment for a family to receive notice that one of their loved ones has cancer. Even more, a cancer growing in the brain, one of the body's most important organs. The risks of operation are immensely high, and so is the levels of anxiety a family goes through in the course of operation and treatments. I knew that having a brain tumor would greatly affect my family emotionally. Not just so, but also economically. Even though I felt completely fine, my tumor could suddenly knock me out unconscious or blind me. Being a construction worker, usually performing my duties at 200+ft in the air, going through such sideeffects are at that times wouldn't be such a great experience. I had to stop working, putting my family on a strict budget, barely making ends meet. That is where Mission4Maureen came into my life as a huge blessing. They generously paid for my monthly home mortgage, going out of their way and went over the designated amount offered initially to pay for my high mortgage payment. My entire family is extremely grateful for such a generous gift Mission4Maureen provided us with. It definitely helped take away a lot of stress off my family I. May God continue blessing this wonderful organization in order for them to go on helping many more families going through such difficult situations.

When I learned I had brain cancer in January of 2014 I was devastated. Mission for Maureen took some burden off the costs having to drive to the next town every day to get radiation. Thanks doesn't seem like enough!

No one wants to have a tumor, of any kind. Unfortunately there are many families suffering from them everyday. In the summer of July, 2014 my 1 year old daughter was diagnosed with a Anaplastic Astrocytoma Grade 3 brain tumor. I applied for assistance from Mission 4 Maureen and they were there for my family, immediately. Months had passed and the tumor began to go away. Chemotherapy was reduced as it made Ava really weak. Around the holiday we received 2 surprise gifts from Mission 4 Maureen, and Ava loved them so much. It was shortly after this we learned she would not survive the brain tumor. She passed 3 weeks later. The memory of her excitement when she opened her presents will always be in my heart. Not only has Mission 4 Maureen helped my family financially, they've created memories and inspired me to help others the way they helped me. Thank you
