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.

The M4M foundation allows families to focus on the business of getting well and not having to worry about how the bills are going to be paid. There are so many charities working on research which is great but to have a charity that focuses on helping families with the day to day it rare and so important. They have helped so many people and I know with Maureens help will continue to do this great work.

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

Reach out to so many people afflicted with this disease and help to lessen the burden of the costly treatment. In this economy every bit helps and simply a little extra money to pay the electric or gas bill could make all the difference.

This nonprofit organization was conceived in honor of its namesake, Maureen, who was taken from her husband, three children under 5, and her loving family at the age of 35 by a Glioblastoma. Maureen's father and husband founded the organization, and also includes Maureen's brothers who take part in triathalons in her memory and honor to raise funds to help others financially in their dealing with Cancer. The organization holds annual fund raisers, but there are just not enough people out there aware of it. This organization could do so much if only the word was spread, which is my reason for writing the review. Top notch organization, volunteers, and family attempting to help others.

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

providing financial assistance in areas where other organizations do not, i.e. day to day living expenses.

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

Witnessing the excitement of the founders when they receive donations and grants from pharmaceutical companies.

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

Loving, caring individuals, who can relate to each personal experience of those in need.

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

perhaps invest half of it so that it continues to grow.
