Mission4Maureen is such an amazing organization for many reasons. It was started in honor of Maureen Lowis, a beautiful, 34 year old mother of 3, who died from glioblastoma multiforme in March 2005. Maureen was appalled by the staggering cost of brain cancer treatments. M4M was founded to financially help patients of brain cancer. We have stopped foreclosures and evictions, helped keep utilities on, help pay for travel for treatment, and for the cost of medication. Research funds are important, but M4M helps patients who are struggling NOW. We help babies from St. Jude's hospital to adults who have lost their jobs. The passion of Maureen is very evident in this organization founded in her memory.

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

I am inspired by the commitment to these patients and by the testimonials of M4M recipients.

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

I just wish we had the resources to help more and more people!

As President of Mission4Maureen (and father), I am honored and determined to carry on Maureen's spirit to help others who suffer from brain cancer. Maureen was always a loving and giving person, putting others before herself was paramount even when she fought this awful disease. It is with Maureen's spirit that Mission4Maureen will help others with brain cancer as this was one of her last wishes.

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

the notes and letters from the applicants.

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

Carrying on Maureen's wishes to help others.

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

help the many people who suffer with this disease.

This is a great foundation, helping many in need. All donations go to those who apply and are in need, with very little overhead cost. The foundation is growing rapidly and receiving grants successfully.

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

the many people who have been given money to help defray their medical and life expenses while dealing with their illness.

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

continue the great work that is being done and continue to help find sources for rasing money to help those who apply.

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

being a part of an organization that is helping so many in need. I get great satisfaction hearing how grateful those are that we've been able to help.

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

extremely committed and devoted to the cause of the foundation.

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

help those suffering from brain cancer live a better quality and less stressful life while dealing with their illness. It would also allow us to help those with brain cancer get the treatments that could potentially save their lives.

Ways to make it better...

I had more personal time to commit to helping the foundation grow.

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

getting the money needed to help all those that apply for our help.

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

what Mission 4 Maureen is doing is phenomenal and only going to continue to get better every year. It is truly a foundation that will not go away!
