My four year old nephew was suffering from DIPG, a brain stem tumor. My brother was spending all his free time with his son and bills needed to be paid. Mission for Maureen assisted him at a very stressful and difficult time. We are forever grateful.

My mother was diagnosed with grade 4 gliblastoma in 2012. It was a very devastating blow to our family as my brother was killes in a car accident only a few year earlier and my uncle sied from brian cance when I was a child. At first we were hopeful that the traditional surgery and chmo and radiation therapy would work. 10 months later though as with most glioblastoma's it had returned. Her Surgeon said he would not operate again and it was only a matter of time. He cancer doctors though had just happened to have gone to a study for amunotheropy trial at Duke. She happenes to be a perfect match. The bad thing was she has to go back and forth to Suke about 600 miles each way. Needlesss to say this took a HUGE toll on my parenta finances. There is not much help you can get for brian cancer and Mission4Maureen was truely a gift from God. Unfortunately my mom passed but my family will never forget their kindness.

Thank you Mission4Maureen for paying for half of our rent this month. #KatherineTheBrave was diagnosed with DIPG on June 2nd, and since then we have struggled to pay our bills, afford her medicine, survive just in general. David had to quit his job to stay home and help with Katherine. We have lots of fundraisers, and support, although getting a bill paid directly not only eases the load financially, it takes one thing off the list that we don't have to worry about during this uncertain and stressful time we are in. Thank you... Jaime King

I was diagnosed with CNS Lymphoma in June 2013. I was struggling not only with my health, but I had no insurance when I was admitted to the ER for brain surgery. My palliative nurse suggested reaching out to Mission4Maureen and I did. They made a wonderful contribution to my medical expenses and I am forever grateful for their generosity and they great work they do.

I first became acquainted with Mission 4 Maureen when I was running my family's foundation to find a cure for brain tumors. As we learned more about the incredible help they provided families facing this dreaded disease, we realized the importance of what they do. In the brain tumor world, and in the cancer world generally, there is a lot of money raised for research and for trials. There is money raised to help pay for expensive treatments. However, it is nearly impossible to pay for all of the "side effects" of treating one's brain tumors - the costs to get child care help, the choice between making a mortgage payment or paying for a treatment that is not covered by insurance, the financial burden of car services to and from necessary appointments. These things are hugely important to a family fighting this disease. Friends and families around you are often generous, but it does not fill this hole. Mission 4 Maureen recognizes this and is one of the few organizations I have found to help with this. I have been fortunate to meet with and speak to a number of people who have been helped by Mission 4 Maureen. They acknowledge that if they did not receive assistance from M4M, they would never have been able to fight the fight that was needed to save their life. If you are looking for a non-profit that fits the description of "great" - Mission 4 Maureen is the one to choose!

Hey to all, Maureen's family, I am a friend of Leslie Sowders. She is very dear to me and I have heard many wonderful things about Maureen and what a blessing she was and is. Keep doing what you are doing and keeping her spirit alive. Go Mission4Maureen! Mandy Hackney

Recruit more help!

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

Probably like all others, not enough funds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Good luck!

It has been an amazing experience to watch this organization, begun with such tragedy, grow into its present status. The people who started Mission4Maureen are blessed with both devotion and tenacity.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help families and loved ones to cope with brain cancer's aftermath.

M4M is a small organization but it's growing and helping as many people with brain cancer as it can. I never met Maureen, but this is a good way for her to live on. It's about helping patients that are fighting now as she did. It's about making sure they can concentrate on fighting cancer instead of fighting to be able to keep their home or pay for their medication.

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

stories in their newsletter.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

probably help every single patient with brain cancer in some way and could advertise what it's doing.

Word of mouth is an amazing tool. I have been sitting in the BWI airport and overheard a young lady talking about this wonderful organization that was created in her cousin's honor. I was immediately hooked. I could not help but to grab on each word she was saying. This young lady moved me to tears. The love for this beautful soul that was taken too soon is so strong and evident. This foundation is a blessing and i feel so blessed just to have heard the personal story. This organization is amazing and could prosper so much with further support and funding.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

listening to a testimonial from one of Maureen's family members.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

assist an abundance of families faced with the financial burden that cancer brings on.
