Brain cancer does not discriminate. Young, old, generous or poor, race, creed...it does not matter. The only difference between brain cancer patients is who can pay for treatment and not lose their home and who cannot. Mission4Maureen tries to help those who don't have the resources to afford treatment.

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

those families who have not lost their homes while dealing with the high costs.

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

help more patients.

I followed Maureen's story when she was sick with glioblastoma, the same cancer that took my mom ten months later. In her, I saw a woman with the same spirit as my mom- infectious, warm, caring. I watched as her community supported her and her family and it appears contiues to do so. This family and organization is such a positive part in the fight against brain cancers and for brain cancer families!

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

helping brain cancer patients, folks who don't generally receive the attention of the mainstream cancer organizations.

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

Let other people know some of the strain of caring for a brain cancer person, and while everyone wants to be positive, it would be helpful for folks to know that the prognosis for most brain cancer patients isn't good.

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

The positive way it has carried on Maureen's spirit with others.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I am not local, so I have not met anyone personally from the organization.

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

Give support to many more brain cancer families. Brain cancer is different than other types of cancers b/c it generally affects the cognitive and physical aspects of the patient from diagnosis. The stress on the caregiver is terrible!

Ways to make it better...

It seems with their revamped website that they are really putting a face to those folks they serve while respecting their privacy.

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

probably the economy, as with all non profit organizations.

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

you are doing a great job!

Mission4Maureen is the most amazing nonprofit organization I have ever been involved with. It has opened up my mind and heart about cancer, what can be done to help those with cancer and how amazing people are that you don't even know who have a loving and Godlike spirit. I have referred people to the organization that have people in their life that are fighting the cancer and might need guidance, help, prayers, resources. When I first learned about Mission4Maureen, it was a small website to update people on Maureen's illness when she was sick and her family. I was so addicated to learn how she was doing, pray for her and connect with others who shared the same interest. I have continued to follow the organizaiton and website and love to get updates on how the Maureen's family is doing and what wonderful things the organization has accomplished for others that are suffering from cancer. Although Maureen is no longer with us here on earth, her legacy and that of Mission4Maureen lives on so strongly...it's amazing!!

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

How they have helped raise money for cancer victims.

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

Change Nothing

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

How much people want to help others.

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

Help so many families in need that are suffering from cancer and do not have the funds to medically fight this disease.

Ways to make it better...

Nothing

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

The financial situation our economy is facing.

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

So glad Mission4Maureen is still up and running!!

I think this is a fantastic organization that reaches out to real families who are suffering the emotional, physical and financial pains of cancer. This organization was born out of love of a lost family member and can truly relate to each person who reaches out to it to request assistance.

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

the outpouring of support to the families they help.

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

reading the updates on what is happening with this organization.

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

help millions of families with the financial struggles of cancer.

Mission4Maureen is a wonderful organization ! Though so much time and money goes into cancer research, little is spent on brain cancer. This organization has not only helped with research but also has helped so many families personally through their cancer journey. Maureen would be so proud!

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

Continue what they are doing:)

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

How many people it has helped! I love seeing stories from families with true gratitude...it is so heartwarming!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very caring, very loving.

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

Help tons and tons of families struggling with this disease.

Ways to make it better...

Maureen was still with us.

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

Raising as much money as needed

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

They have done such a wonderful job helping others and fullfilling Maureen's wishes!

Mission4Maureen is one of the best charities around because it helps people who are really having trouble financially. Other cancers have many foundations that help patients, but brain cancer patients don't get much attention or help. Mission4Maureen is helping to fill a gap in caring about and helping these patients and their families.

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

help every applicant who applies and patients could just worry about getting better instead of how to pay the bills.

My best friend Monica Young Henry is Maureen's husband's aunt. I found out early on about Maureen's diagnosis. Though I live in New York and the Lowis' in Ohio, I was always kept apprised of Maureen's health status from her Aunt Monica. I would occassionally hear from Terrence as well - we shared the fact that he grew up not far from me. Maureen's selflessness, faith, love for family and friends inspires me still. I never met her personally, but I felt like I knew her. There were so many ups and downs with this debilitating illness - I couldn't imagine how this bright, beautiful young couple and parents of 3 children could cope. And yet they did. When Maureen passed away, fittingly, on Good Friday - I felt like I had lost a friend. I pray for her family every night. It is a priviledge to know this family - they are remarkable especially in the way they have turned a tragedy into something so positive and Maureen continues to help others. I proudly wear a bracelet that one of Maureen's friends made. It is my "Angel" bracelet. Barbara Biuso - South Setauket, NY 7/28/2009

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

How many families have been helped both financially and emotionally.

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

Could never top what is already being done

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

Being a part of something so much bigger than myself. As long as Mission4Maureen continues, Maureen will always be with us.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

only online.

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

Financially help even more people devasted by cancer.

Ways to make it better...

We were still able to post things on the site.

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

Getting the word out that brain cancer is so highly unpredictable and it doesn't discriminate.

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

I'm proud to know Terrence.
