My daughter Carrie was diagnosed with an Ependymoma brain tumor in April 2005. She was 14 months old. She has been though many tumor resections and various chemo.'s and two times of radiation therapy. In Sept. 2009, my husband moved out while I was out of town with Carrie getting her second radiation treatment. In Sept. 2010, her tumor began to grow again. In Jan. 2011, her tumor hemmoraged. She was hospitalized for 5 months. During this time, my husband whom I am still trying to divorce, fired me from our family business and contested my unemployment. I had no income for 3 months. I also have a 12 year old son. Mission4Maureen has been instrumental in helping me pay some of my bills that I would have never been able to cover on my own. They were there when I really needed someone. I can't begin to thank them enough for taking some of the burden off of me during this very difficult year.
