How quickly life changes! Our baby six yrs old was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a brain tumor three weeks into Kindergarten. He waited in anticipation all summer for school. He was so excited! He even attended one soccer practice before our world changed forever. We were on a family vacation when he was diagnosed. Our son has such an extensive treatment plan, making it impossible to work. We had just bought our first home and had not lived in it a year. Our Social Worker referred us to Mission for Maureen, who after reviewing our application and verifications approved us right away. They paid bills on our behalf and emailed a confirmation letter, which was such a relief. Even sitting down to pay a bill is overwhelming and they took the weight off of our shoulders. Being awarded the financial assistance from the Mission$Maureen program also freed up money allowing us to travel out of state for his chemotherapy and out of town trips for bloodcounts. We are so thankful for this family and their non profit. This foundation has helped us survive financially. I also thank Maureen, who the non-profit was named and dedicated for. How proud she would be of her family for establishing the foundation and how she is helping so many families battle this awful disease of brain cancer.
