This foundation was one of the best to work with when we where in major need for our Daughter. I had put out hudreds of applications for assistance trying to help get my family back on there feet when our Daugther was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor back in January of 08. Mission4Maureen was one of the first places to contact me back and made it very simple to be able to use there services. They where so compationite and helpfull, and really did there all to make our dificult time so much more easy on us. If it was not for them we could not have made it threw or kept out home due to being out of work so long to rehabilitate our daugther after sugery. They are a wonderful foundation and I thank God that we where directed to them in our time of need. They are truly angels to our family.

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.

My fifteen year old daughter was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor in January of this year. We learned about Mission4Maureen from the hospital social worker. After a very simple application process we learned that even though my daughter lost her battle with cancer a very short time later, Mission4Maureen would still assist our family financially. They paid our mortgage which was a true blessing to us financially.

I followed the story of this courageous woman (Maureen Walker Lowis) and her family throughout her illness. I was intensely touched by their loving bond and spirituality and how they faced the uncertainty of a tragic situation with such dignity and strength. The experience moved me deeply. And I feel I've become a better person because I was priviledged to participate in her journey, even from the outside. I have only great repspect for Maureen's husband and her family in developing her Mission and in all they've accomplished. They've taken what concerned and mattered to her to heart and now try to help those who also suffer from brain cancer. I look forward to helping in any way that I can, and it makes me so proud to know I can make a difference through all of their efforts. I urge you to recognize this GREAT Non-Profit Organization for all of its works that comes straight from the heart!

This organization was a God sent to my parents who are dealing with brain cancer. For the first time in over a year, they did not have to worry about money. It is hard enough to deal with this disease, but knowing the financial burdens that comes with it is sometimes even harder. I love what this organization does, and will continue to make donations. Any little bit helps.

M4M is my favorite nonprofit. I donate every year because the organization supports families as they are going through the most difficult times. There direct approach in helping families focus on their loved ones instead of on their new financial burden should be a model for all non profits.

This foundation is truly a God send to those family's who are going through difficult times during cancer. Not only was this Maureen's wish to help other families who suffer in the same way she did, but, her family contributes tremendously by way of fundraising, raffles, triathlons/races etc.

The M4M foundation allows families to focus on the business of getting well and not having to worry about how the bills are going to be paid. There are so many charities working on research which is great but to have a charity that focuses on helping families with the day to day it rare and so important. They have helped so many people and I know with Maureens help will continue to do this great work.

To be a part of Mission 4 Maureen is sharing in the vision of a selfless, loving and caring individual. Maureen wanted nothing more than to make a difference in other's lives and with the help of her husband, father, children, family and friends her mission is being carried out. I have been a proud supporter of M4M since the beginning. I have taken alot of pride in recruiting online supporters through social networking, participating in raffle events and personal contributions. I am blessed to be apart of such a wonderful organization and look forward to seeing how many lives can be touched by this cause.

The mission statement-"Nobody can do everything, but everybody can do somehting" is exactly how this small but very dedicated organization works. The efforts of the people and the patients and their families who benefit from their work know- M4M pays it forward! When faced with over-whelming issues, they get at least a little renewed faith and hope from the M4M. So many times we want to help but either are not asked or do not know how to help a family in this type of situation. M4M, with their motto, shows that everyone can do something either by supporting M4M finacially, or recommending a family or individual who needs assistance. Donations to M4M go directly to families who need it, not into an organization that has overhead and expenses that interfere with the donations getting to those who need it. Thanks to those who are the M4M. You have taught me what a commitment to a mission really means.

mission Maureeen was a God send. After our daughter was diagnosed with a maligant brain tumor. I stopped working the day of diagnosis. to take care of her. this cut our house hold income to less than Half. Within no time our reserve funds were used up. Mission for Maureen has paid two months of mortgage for us. we would have been out on the street with a very sick child had it not been for this network. This diagnosis could not have come at a worse econimic time.with so may jobs being lost. We have to travel long distance for treatment. and sometimes to fill the vehicle takes the very last of funds. I hate to say it but I am glad when we go to the hospital. then I know that our daughter will get good nutritious meals for a few days. we do not qualify for assistance from the gov. This has been a dark journey. and we just pray a successful outcome.. may God continue to bless this charity and all they do for others.

If there were more stars to fill in under the "Overall Rating", it still would not be enough to let the public know the difference "MISSION4MAUREEN" has made in many lives. Maureen wanted nothing more then to touch the lives of children,adults and their loved ones that were suffering from this terrible disease. Our family has made this "Mission" our mission and will continue to do so until the last family has to suffer no longer.

Mission4Maureen was initiated out of love and passion from a young wife and mother who died of brain cancer leaving 3 young children who of course didn't understand. Their Mother wanted this help for others...wanted her children to learn about outreach and giving, thus, her dream became the passion of her loving family...to help other families who have a loved one that suffers from cancer and needs financial assistance. This young Mother was never so self-absorbed in her own illness to forget about others, especially a little boy she met in the hospital who too suffered from cancer. Maureen's husband,children and family, participate in any activity that promotes Mission4Maureen, always feeling the loving spirit of their Mother, Wife, Sister, and Daughter embracing them.

This nonprofit organization was conceived in honor of its namesake, Maureen, who was taken from her husband, three children under 5, and her loving family at the age of 35 by a Glioblastoma. Maureen's father and husband founded the organization, and also includes Maureen's brothers who take part in triathalons in her memory and honor to raise funds to help others financially in their dealing with Cancer. The organization holds annual fund raisers, but there are just not enough people out there aware of it. This organization could do so much if only the word was spread, which is my reason for writing the review. Top notch organization, volunteers, and family attempting to help others.

Mission4Maureen was extrememly helpful to a family that I referred to them. The family was facing mounting financial troubles that were preventing them from being able to focus on what mattered most--their ill child. Mission4Maureen quickly answered this family's needs, assisting with outstanding utility bills and housing costs, allowing the family to regain a sense of stability, not only financial, but emotional as well.

We were really fortunate to come across Mission4Maureen. The organization has been very supportive to our family and understands the needs of families dealing with cancer. Our 3 year old was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma on Nov 28, 2008. At the time we were both working full time and I was 4 months pregnant. Since then, we are down to one income and I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on April 9th. The organization was able to assist us with some of our financial needs. They are a blessing and wondering group of people.
