I think this is a fantastic organization that reaches out to real families who are suffering the emotional, physical and financial pains of cancer. This organization was born out of love of a lost family member and can truly relate to each person who reaches out to it to request assistance.

They have taken a terrible loss and turned into selfless acts of kindness. the spirit of Maureen Lowis lives on in the families this foundation touches. If she could take all the pain and suffering that goes along with this disease she would. The foundation attempts to take away some of the financial stress and lets families focus on the importan matters of getting the patient better.

Mission4Maureen is a wonderful organization ! Though so much time and money goes into cancer research, little is spent on brain cancer. This organization has not only helped with research but also has helped so many families personally through their cancer journey. Maureen would be so proud!

Mission4Maureen is one of the best charities around because it helps people who are really having trouble financially. Other cancers have many foundations that help patients, but brain cancer patients don't get much attention or help. Mission4Maureen is helping to fill a gap in caring about and helping these patients and their families.

help every applicant who applies and patients could just worry about getting better instead of how to pay the bills.

Mission4Maureen has been filling a need that has often been overlooked. By helping families in day to day finances, they can focus their energy on what really matters. Maureen's family and friends are an inspiration with their selflessness and helping others. I have referred several friends to this non-profit for their loved ones battling brain cancer.

Maureen was my sister in law and her cause representes exactly what she wanted- to help others in need that are suffering this illness. I have recommended some of my own friends to her site for assistance who are battling with brain cancer in their families. I know she smiles as she looks down upon us and watches over her family and this great cause.

Mission4Maureen is an awesome & supportive organization. They stepped in during a very challenging time in my life & assisted with my mortgage. After my 2nd Brain Tumor Removal surgery in June,2008, I was in the hospital for almost a month recovering and basically learning to walk all over again. The planner that I am, I simply did not expect nor could effectively plan for the length of time that I would be away from my job on medical leave. The decline of the economy happened at the same time. My husband and daughter were in a severe car accident 5 days after my surgery and they are both still recovering. As a result, my husband has not been able to add to the family income. 33 consecutive days of radiation daily at a distance of 66 miles roundtrip to the hospital was costly. It saved my life but added to everything else on my family's plate. I decided to write to mission4maureen for financial asssistance. I could relate to Maureen's story as a mom. It broke my heart to learn that unfortunately she lost her battle with her brain tumor. That and my faith in God fueled me to do everything I can to get back to being myself to be more of an asset to my family, as we are not promised tomorrow. This whole experience has been an unanticipated humbling one. Through needing help through my recovery, and ultimately needing help financially. They helped with us catch up our mortgage. I will be forever grateful. Once am released to return to work, which WILL happen, I feel obligated to make a contribution to Mission4Maureen to help another family.

My best friend Monica Young Henry is Maureen's husband's aunt. I found out early on about Maureen's diagnosis. Though I live in New York and the Lowis' in Ohio, I was always kept apprised of Maureen's health status from her Aunt Monica. I would occassionally hear from Terrence as well - we shared the fact that he grew up not far from me. Maureen's selflessness, faith, love for family and friends inspires me still. I never met her personally, but I felt like I knew her. There were so many ups and downs with this debilitating illness - I couldn't imagine how this bright, beautiful young couple and parents of 3 children could cope. And yet they did. When Maureen passed away, fittingly, on Good Friday - I felt like I had lost a friend. I pray for her family every night. It is a priviledge to know this family - they are remarkable especially in the way they have turned a tragedy into something so positive and Maureen continues to help others. I proudly wear a bracelet that one of Maureen's friends made. It is my "Angel" bracelet. Barbara Biuso - South Setauket, NY 7/28/2009
