This nonprofit is the best one I have ever heard of! My husband is 33 years old and was diagnosed in 2015 with a grade 2 oligodendroglioma which was successfully removed with a craniotomy. My husband has been battling ALOT of health issues and setbacks ever since his diagnosis which has caused many hospital visits, ER visits, specialist visits, chemo, etc. We do have good health insurance through my employer but we also have 4 children 10 and under so as you can imagine, keeping up with all the medical bills is VERY challenging. We were awarded a very generous grant through Mission 4 Maureen which has been a life saver! It just eases a little bit of the stress off of my shoulders so I can focus more on my husband and children. I appreciate this program so much and feel so blessed to have been referred to it. THANK YOU MISSION 4 MAUREEN!
Diagnosed April 1, 2013, with a terrifying disease of brain cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme), I refused to become a "bad" statistic. Instead, my path would only allow prayer, positive thinking and hope! Bills began to pile up, I had to quit my job of teaching British English to seniors, and there were so many doctors' appointments which I couldn't drive to. I used my time by combing the internet for help and I found Mission4Maureen.
The site was so encouraging! I asked for an amount to cover some very specific bills, and I was sent a check with no red tape. The ease at which my case was handled really encouraged me to keep canvasing the internet for other sources. Unfortunately, I found none that were as straight forward and helpful as this nonprofit. The 5-star rating should really be a 6-star because it is that wonderful.
With the help of many prayers, God's loving grace and my doctors, I am in remission and only go for Avastin infusion treatments once every two weeks. The brain cancer is gone. I can do things I enjoy, like traveling and being with my family. I treasure my husband Robert, who is the epitome of a supportive spouse, and my boys Jake and Justin. I found Mission4Maureen exactly when I needed it! Thanks!
I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumors on April 1, 2013. My prognosis was terminal - no stage I, II, III or IV. Removal by surgery was not an option. Online research showed life expectancy of about 3 months. That wasn't good enough for me. I began to do work on managing my own experiences and was lead to Mission4Maureen. This site gave me not only financial assistance, but encouragement to continue to live! Now, thanks to prayers, medicine, and positive thinking, I am what my oncologist calls a "Miracle Lady"! Latest MRI shows NO abnormalities - the brain cancer is GONE!
Mission4Maureen is the best non-profit program from which I received financial assistance. The application process is straight forward, communication is with real people and quick, the results are fast. Mission4Maureen proved to be the best at helping me out financially when I needed it. They are truly a GREAT nonprofit!
Two family members with brain cancer and Mission4Maureen is amazing with the support, both financially and emotionally!!! Thank you!!!
I cannot tell everyone how wonderful Mission4Maureen is! They have helped through a very difficult time! Jennifer was diagnosed with Stage 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma and the prognosis was NOT good. Married, with 4 young children, she was determined to beat this thing! Well, after 6 very difficult weeks of Chemo and Radiation daily, the tumor did not shrink at all. Very disappointing and scary. So, she went to Texas (we live in Michigan), to MD Anderson Cancer Center, where they operated on this inoperable tumor! AMEN!! They were able to remove about 80% of this tumor, so the prognosis now is much better!! But due to this, she has been off work for 6 months, and her husband for most of that time as well. With $0 income, Mission4Maureen's assistance has been invaluable and came at a time they felt they could not keep their head above water. Fear of losing your home during a time when everything else is falling apart is something they did not need! Thank you so much for helping!!!!
I was a 23 year old full time preschool teacher who just graduated from the University of Michigan. I had just been accepted into my graduate program when two months later I found out I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. Due to brain surgery I was forced to take a month off from work for recovery. Being an independent, working and paying my way through undergrad and soon to be graduate school money was tight. Mission for Maureen was my Knight in Shining Armour, my angel watching over me and the little help I needed to get ahead. I will forever be grateful to this organization for the help that they were able to give to me and many others.
Mission4Maureen Is the best! I was out of work with my going back and forth to treatment once a week for 14 months. My mind was racing 100 mph trying to figure out how be there for my son and pay bills. I could do nothing but cry. I was online in the middle of the night search for resources to help me. I completed Mission4Maureen online application and with in a week help came through. Thank you so much Mission4Maureen.

To whom it may concern. please forgive me of my lateness. my goal was to write this review soon. i did not want to take an extra momment to post pond my review, considering how important this is, not just for me but for all readers. it is hard to convey, how important this is. it is not the kind of thing, one would think you would need to share, or would ever need to share, but here it is. i know thousand of quotations, words of other authors i spent my whole life reading but none have prepare me for this momment or humble me more.
we would like to think, at times like this the right words would come easy, but it does not, but what are the right words, to spend our whole lives practicing them. if as somehow through practice they would get better. as i'm writing this, i'm reliving the experiecne and re- learning it. i am imagining it, through the ears and eyes of my wife and children and it fills me with so much love, that it is hard to contain myself. considering what is ask of me, this is small of what i have ask from your organization. your agency has came to my aid right on time. when i needed it the most. It met my most unmet need and i am humbly greatful. thank you again.
Mission4Maureen is a class act through and through. We were in a financial predicament shortly after our 14-year-old son was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor and we applied for help. I remember the day I received the phone call that our application had been approved. I had just been on the phone with my Mom telling her I didn't know what we were going to do. She said thr Lord has always pulled through.
I got off the phone and received M4M's voicemail and tears streamed down my face. What a gift they are to lighten other's loads during a life challenge and all while honoring Maureen in the process. Can't sing their praises enough!
I was terminated by my employer at my son's bedside as we awaited his diagnosis. We had just found a tumor on his brain a few days before. It was horrible. As a single mother, I had no additional help to try and save my son's life. SSI only paid the bare minimum which didn't cover hardly anything with all the travel we had to do each day; 126 miles-one way to the Children's Hospital.
When I found Mission4Maureen, the electric company was prepared to turn off our lights. The next time we had to reach out to M4M; I was on the verge of losing my apartment and my vehicle.
The kindness that M4M has shown me and my son can never be repaid. They are angels among me. My son has since passed away but they continue to reach out in support sometimes and I think that is amazing...the feeling of not being forgotten.
Rosie and Mr. Walker are the most amazing people I've had the pleasure of meeting. They have helped me save my home and my car. My son, Ethan, was diagnosed with brain cancer in March of 2012. I was fired at bedside and without the help of Mission4Maureen, I'm sure I wouldn't have been able to leave my focus where it need to be..on my son.
Thank you, M4M! You're the best!
I am a social worker and I reached out to Mission for Maureen for much needed assistance for a client and her family. I was blown away by the amount with which they were able to help. Communication was prompt as well. Overall the experience far exceeding my expectations.
Larry Walker and his Mission 4 Maureen Foundation has been absolutely a blessing for our son and our family. We are so thankful for the support we have received from this wonderful nonprofit organization. May God continue to bless their mission and effort.
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.
