Mission4Maureen
April 20, 2011

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.
