I had 2 brain surgeries, one in 2012 and one almost a year later in 2013. I am 42 years old and I was diagnosed with a pediatric malignant tumor, usually seen in infants to 5 years old. The surgeries were successful and I went through 6 weeks of radiation: full brain, spine and boost to the tumor site. I was finished with treatment in January but I am still experiencing lingering syptoms. I have a husband of 18 years and we have boy/girl twins and a little girl all under 5 years old. Needless to say our lives have been a struggle, but I am so thankful to everyone at Mission4Maureen for their support. I am so deeply grateful for helping my family in a time of need. God bless, Kerri Musallet

My wife was diagnosed in 2007 with a brain tumor. In 2008 she had her first of three brain surgeries to remove the tumor, her most recent surgery was 2012. She has also undergone chemo and radiation and gave birth to our beautiful baby girl in between her first and second surgery. She applied to Mission4Maureen and thankfully was accepted. They have been the greatest help we could ever ask for helping us with our bills and giving us someone to talk with when we needed it. I wish there were more groups out there like Mission4Maureen to help people like they have helped us.

Last fall I reached out and asked for help. My husband has stag 4 brain cancer; we lost his business and our home and are currently living with family. Asking for help is tough and Mission4Maureen was the only organization that came through. With their donation we were able to catch up on medical bills. I got the call from Mission4Maureen to inform me that they would be able to help; I was so happy....no one had every done anything this nice for us. Thank you, Thank you Debbie & Terry PS Terry is one year out from surgery and still with us; the Lord has plans for him.

Hi,my name is Lisa Braner. My cousin is Maureen Lowis, and she is the "Angel", that began this mission to be carried out as her greatest wish before God brought her home , as she peacefully went on that Good Friday, before Easter as she went to her final resting place to be with our sweet Jesus. Even before Maureen was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (brain cancer),she was silently doing her angel work here on earth. The mother of three beautiful young children , awesome wife to Terrence, daughter of Larry and Teresa Walker, also known as (Queen Maureen ), sister to Jeffrey and David, and grandaughter ,niece, cousin, "special needs teacher, and the best friend anyone could ask for.Active in the church community , as well as just all around Maureen was Always putting others first.... you never saw her without a smile or never knew she wasn't feeling well , even when her cancer struck her, Maureen and her husband , went to the Lord for their answers and you never saw a REAL LOVE STORY , until you watched the LOWIS's take this illness and and live each and every day to the fullest , only to begin with God ,at the start of each day, knowing exactly that he was the answer to the whole outcome of how the story would become the MISSION4MAUREEN FOUNDATION, Maureens final wish has now come true as she shines like a Rainbow knowing her legacy is being carried out by her very family. Everyone doing their part, ironman runs, triatholns, her very own daughter Sarah , growing her hair for 1 whole year then having it cut ,as she is being video (d) to donate to have it made into a wig for someone who has lost their hair to cancer treatments. All three children , cousins and family members participating in the ironman runs and triatholons, all over the U.S.,with all supporters, wearing t-shirts, with the mission4maureen logo on them . Maureens girlfriends have made bracelets that they wore while Maureen was still in the hospital , and as cousins arrived for her funeral we all wanted one, which is now known as "The Maureen Bracelet, each bead having a meaning for a certain thing,) now if donations made of a certain amount , donors can recieve one of these. Wonderful things happen through this mission though you must always keep your eyes open, Maureen's grandmother was very ill and about to pass, and a hospice volunteer was caring for her in her home , when she was wearing hers, and so was the hospice worker, when asked where she got the bracelet, she said oh everyone at the office is looking for "A Maureen Bracelet " and Aunt Teresa , said well this sweet lady here is Maureen's grandmother. God Is Good. Now just this June 20, 2009, my grandmother of 96 years, passed away , at the Dayton , Ohio Hospice, I was with her when she passed , her birthday was on May 19, she was in perfect health, as a matter of fact she was playing cards that afternoon and had a stroke . When she was taken to hospice , I left from Atlanta to be with her until her death, nine days , no food or water, you talk about a wonderful woman of God , yes she was too. My point here I took my Maureen Bracelet, and had it Blessed while we were there , and put it on her and prayed for less suffering and pain.It was returned to me after she passed , as she loved to wear bracelets and this was just more meaningful for me . As for the mission to continue to be carried out for Maureen , I have recriuted 21 members and have asked more of my facebook friends, and am waiting their reply. My next plan is I am having a liscense plate designed for the front of cars with the MISSION4MAUREEN motto "Nobody can do everything but everybody can do something" , and this will not be a regular car tag just a fight against brain cancer. Then once this is designed, I want to go to all of the festivals since I am a southerner and set up my booth with all of the MISSION4MAUREEN t-shirts, hats bracelets etc.and applications for our fight against brain cancer. To finish my story on "Our Angel her final wish was to be able to help those who needed help financially , or otherwise who also had to fight this disease , and she wanted this more than anything when she met a little boy , when she was going through some treatment at the same time he was. I don't know of a stronger man than Maureen's husband Terrence , who has made this dream come true for Maureen, he has done a tremendous job with the children, and just absolutly honered Maureens wish , with the help of Uncle Larry , Maureens dad who keeps the mission running , which i know their are alot more we don't all see, but between God and those two Men , MISSION4MAUREEN definitly should be number 1 in the fight to help fight those that otherwise can not help themselves, or their families. Because "Nobody Can Do Everything,But Everybody Can Do Something". Go Queen Maureen, And May God Bless this organization and all who keep it going. Your Cousin. Lisa Braner

All of the different types of fund raisers, May Day Lottery's,Maureen Bracelets, Christmas Ornaments

No complaints.

This is a wonderful organization! Their goal has always been to help others in need during their battle with brain cancer. Each and every dollar they bring in goes to families in need. They do all they do with love and compassion.

I believe that one of the greatest advantages that Misssion4Maureen has over the "big" charities is that it can fill the gaps in need that the others can't. I love that they provide transportation to treatment, child care while parents care for sick children, assitance paying utilities, buy groceries, etc. These are services that the large charities just don't provide. This is truly a blessing for the families that are already consumed in grief and concern. I am proud to help raise money for this wonderful charity!

Being a volunteer for many non-profits, M4M is one of the very few that spends all the funds on the people that really need it. The overhead...oh, wait there is no administrative costs. Every dollar that is brought in is spent on the people that are unfortunate and need help that other organization don't help with. Just paying a water bill or house payment can give someone the piece of mind they need to support thier family memeber.

The Great!

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

the smiles on the faces of the families that have been helped. The website is very open about how and what they can do for you and your family.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

publicity

This is truly one of the best, honest, and caring organizations you could ever encounter. This foundation has a strong base and is dedicated to helping those people who are suffering from brain cancer. It has helped many people already and will continue to succeed for a long time due to the dedication of the founding parties. This foundation is amazing and makes you realize that everyone can make a difference.

M4M is based on the altruistic thoughts from Maureen before God called her home. This nonprofit provises financially for those cancer patient's and their family who are likely to have severe financial issues. Maureen was a blessing to all who knew her, her caring ways continue in her memory. Our world will never be the same, and it's not because Maureen is gone. It is because she was here in the first place.

The Great!

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

many instances where funds were provided.
