June of 2013, glioblastoma stage 4 brain cancer came into our lives, unwanted and unexpected. Along with it came medical bills, daily household expenses that needed to be met, but money only stretches so far, our insurance company recommended that we contact mission for maureen to help with some of those bills. I did and will say, I was skeptical, but they came through with help in the form of assisting with a large bill that needed to be paid. This site, and organization is a wonderful godsend for those sick & in need of assistance. I can only hope that one day, I'll be able to donate back to them to keep this going.

In 1989 I was diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumor. It was wrapped around the left optic nerve, the left internal carotid artery, several of the cranial nerves, the pituitary gland, and pushing against the frontal lobe of the brain. The neurosurgeon, Dr. Hal Hankinson of Albuquerque, NM, was able to take out about 90% of it, but three years later it had grown back and the doctors were concerned it might have gone inside the carotid artery. Dr. Robert Spetzler in Phoenix, AZ, operated in October of 1992 and was able to remove all but a very tiny piece of the tumor. However, 21 years later, it had grown back and I needed to have surgery again. The tumor was now also impinging on the right optic nerve. I'd already lost the use of my left eye and now my right eye was in danger. No neurosurgeon in Ohio would operate on it and I was fighting to get financial coverage to get it done by Dr. Spetzler in Phoenix. I had the surgery done in October 2013. Mission4Maureen has helped me tremendously by paying part of my expenses before I went to Phoenix and helping to pay my medical bills from the surgery. They have been extremely supportive!

Mission4Maureen is a wonderful organization that has been extremely helpful and generous to our family. My wife was diagnosed with brain cancer and has been in and out of hospitals, oncology appointments and countless other examinations. In such a physically and emotionally painful process, Mission4Maureen has been a beacon of light both financially and emotionally for our family.

My husband has been battling brain cancer for about a year now, He has been in the hospital every month since we found out. Mission 4 Maureen helped us with some of our bills. You know you never know what life will give you and God sent us a angel with the help that you gave us. I really don't know where we would be with out the help you gave us. I hope to be able to pay back in some way for all the help that was given to us
THANK YOU SO MUCH

Mission4Maureen helped us financially with our past due rent. I don't know what we would have done had they not helped us. It took all of our money to pay for out of state treatment for my husband's inoperable brain tumor. The process was very quick & easy. Mission4Maureen is the best NonProfit Organizations for Brain Tumor assistance that I've found. They are the only organization we have found that was willing to help people suffering from Brain Tumors from all age groups, other organizations were only willing to help children. Mission4Maureen truly deserves to be grant recipients & awarded more funds & donations to help further their reach in helping families suffering from this horrible disease. Mission4Maureen is truly AMAZING!

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

Find a way to help them receives more grants, funds, and financial assistance. I would also help bring awareness to their organization & give them awards for their outstanding contribution to the nation.

Mission4Maureen went above and beyond in helping me with my doctor bills. I was not sure if I qualified for assitance for my tumor since it was non cancerous. However, upon calling Mission4Maureen they explained that I would qualify because the tumor is not supposed to be there, and that it was causing unexpected expenses. I had brain surgery in 2010 and then had to have three radiation treatments in December of 2012. I have to have an MRI every six months to monitor the tumor until doctors are confident that the tumor is not going to continue to grow. The bills continue to mount with each MRI, so I called Mission4Maureen. I filled out the application and explained my situation. A couple of weeks after submitting my application I received a letter from the doctor's that I was going to be placed in collections because I was not able to pay my portion of the bill. I called Mission4Maureen and explained my situation and they had me fax the bill to see if we could possibly speed up the process. Mission4Maureen's site clearly states that the application process takes up to four weeks. However, a couple of days later I received a call and letter stating that my application had been accepted and that they would be sending he payment to the doctor. What a relief. I was unaware that groups like Mission4Marueen existed and was not sure what to do with my bills. Thankfully they were able to help me. I will be passing their name on to others that I know have tumors. I am supposed to be attending a brain tumor seminar in West Chester, Ohio and I will definitely mention Mission4Maureen.

Mission4Maureen helped my fiancee who is battling stage 3 brain cancer by providing needed financial assistance. They are an amazing organization. I searched the internet and contacted numerous organizations for financial assistance and had little luck due to the type of cancer and the grade so we are very grateful for the assistance the Mission4Maureen provided.

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.

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

show it off via several social media, television commercials, radio station, posters, department stores, libraries etc.

My daughter has a brain tumor. We needed some financial assistance with our child and other kids. They graciously paid a few of our larger bills. It really helped ease the burden of having a sick child.
