After suffering a seizure she was rushed to 2 different hospitals . Arriving to Westchester Medical where there they saved her life. We were began receiving hospital bills ,medication bills her rehabilitation expenses and living cost was so much to bare. We researched the internet and found this wonderful nonprofit organization . We read the story and felt a real connection with them. At that point we decide to ask for help. This organization is wonderful they helped us with our daughter medical bill and help us breathe a little better while we helped our daughter get back on her feet. We still are in her 2 1/2 year mark only half way to her remission point but we couldn't have done it with out MISSION4MAUREEN.

Our story is begins with the sudden illness of our 13 year old daughter who began having horrible headaches. After some time going through testing and visits with her doctor we were prepared to visit a neurologist. The day before she had a seizure in our home. After the initial hospital we were told she had a mass/tumor on her brain. Westchester medical is were she under went a 12 hours of surgery. The tumor was cancerous and we have been on a steady road of her recovery. You couldn't imagine how overwhelming the medical bills have been. Surgery ,therapy, medication , MR'IS,EEG'S (Every three months) and even everyday living .We felt blessed with our daughter's recovery but we were drowning financially . One night I was online and looking for help .Found the mission4maureen website. Read the story of Maureen, I cried and felt that we could understand there mission the loss they felt in losing daughter, wife, friend. When reading and exploring the site we discovered they help families in need. They paid for back medical bills and some of our home bills . When doing the application I spoke to one of there reps and I was treated with kindness and concern for our situation. Mission4mareen is a wonderful organization and should be recognized as such. They care .

Our daughter had severe headaches. The day before her appointment with a Neurologist she had a Gran Maul Seizure. She was transported to Westchester Medical Center and we were told she would need to have a tumor removed form her brain. After a 15 hour surgery and a few days later we find out she had a Ependymoma Brain Tumor (Cancer). During this time Our daughter has been following Protocal Of MRI'S ever three to four months for two years. Medical appointment, Physical therapy and medication and so on.
The sitiuation of crisis doesnt stop the medical and everyday expense a famly faces. One evening I decided to find help online . We found Mission4Maureen. After reading their story and reading the stories of the families they have helped we decided to fill out an application. During this process i had a problem and i contacted them directly by phone. The wonderful woman who answered the phone was so helpful so kind. We finished and i tell you from start to finish it took two weeks. They helped pay for our daughter's MRI'S and most of our household bills for a month.
Alowing us to be able to make repairs on the family vechicle for our daughters upcoming appointments.

We couldnt express to them the graditude we have for the help they provived. Mission4maureen is a wonderful charity and i would tell anyone who needs help to please apply.
Thank You
The Carlucci Family
