Our 12 year old daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor 5 years ago and underwent brain surgery for treatment...all of the tumor could not be removed because of its location. Mission4Maureen was gracious enough to provide financial assistance for our utility bills as we had to travel weekly for her year-long chemotherapy treatments that followed. This was truly a blessing to experience that people are still compassionate enough to help others and ease their hardship. Many thanks and God bless!!!

We are so grateful for the assistance Mission4Maureen provided when my 10 year old battled brain cancer for the second time in her young life. It was wonderful having the much needed help in our time of difficulty. Thank you so much!

When diagnosed with brain cancer at 25, this organization swooped in to save me and my family in endless ways. We faced an insurance company dropping me for pre-existing conditions and no information on how to navigate financial support like them or collect funds from donations. They got us out alive. They were kind, patient, knowledgeable, thorough, and patient again, Always grateful.

I was helped by this wonderful charity when my husband was suffering from brain cancer. They made the mortgage payment for one month as we struggled to get medical disability set up. Sadly I lost my husband to the brain cancer but my gratitude to this charity remains and I contibute to them so they may help others.

Our son, Nathan, is 5 years old and has been battling brain cancer since Jan 2009 and spinal cord cancer since Oct 2011. We have three other children ages 9,6, and 2. My husband is working two part time jobs. Mission4Maureen has been a huge support emotionally and financially in relieving some of the financial stress so we can focus on what is really important! Thank you so much! May the Lord bless this AWESOME organization!

My daughter, Nadia, was feeling sick for about 4 random days in a two week period...sick one day...better three days. It was weird...we had her birthday party 2 days after her 7th birthday, on July 9, 2011, and even that morning, she woke up ill, but was better by noon and showed no sighns of slowing down all day...but July 10th, that morning she was ill again, and it's not normal to puke or have headaches...so we went to the ER that morning and by the afternoon, she was flying to Children's Hospital. I tell you, I have remained calm, probably calmer than my friends and the doctors, even, and I'm glad they have found me to be inspiring and all of that, but there are times when you are home alone just wondering what's next. This thing has been a whirlwind or emotions and decisions and nerves. Everything has been moving very fast in the past 4 months.
And trust me, Jesus has been keeping me. And I have been blessed to meet some great social workers, nurses, and helpers who have lined me up with excellent resources, such as Mission4Muareen. My home was broken into 2 weeks before Nadia's diagnosis of medulloblastoma (brain cancer) and a few things were stolen, and with the holidays coming up, I could have easily started to feel terribly uncomfortable, but when I received notice that your organization was helping pay my mortgage, it was...right on time. I thank you very much! Nadia thanks you!! I made sure she read the letter and we thank God for you, for having the resources and the willing heart to help us!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

financial help above what I expected.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

sponsor them myself...and when all of this is over, I will donate, so their vision can remain bright!!

My daughter Carrie was diagnosed with an Ependymoma brain tumor in April 2005. She was 14 months old. She has been though many tumor resections and various chemo.'s and two times of radiation therapy. In Sept. 2009, my husband moved out while I was out of town with Carrie getting her second radiation treatment. In Sept. 2010, her tumor began to grow again. In Jan. 2011, her tumor hemmoraged. She was hospitalized for 5 months. During this time, my husband whom I am still trying to divorce, fired me from our family business and contested my unemployment. I had no income for 3 months. I also have a 12 year old son. Mission4Maureen has been instrumental in helping me pay some of my bills that I would have never been able to cover on my own. They were there when I really needed someone. I can't begin to thank them enough for taking some of the burden off of me during this very difficult year.

my name is Lourie and this is my beautiful daughter Alyse. We would like to thank Mission4Maureen for their help when we needed it the most. This is such a wonderful organization to reach out to folks like myself with such an awful medical condition. May God continue to bless each of you and all those who are involved. My prayers are with you all. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

Our daughter, Grace, has a terminal meningioma. As she is terminal, medical procedures/treatments are no longer occuring. The financial burden on a family however continues; unpaid leave from work, etc. Mission4Maureen provided a mortagage payment on our behalf. This finanical assistance eased our burden and allowed us to focus more on Grace, and less on finances.
