Diagnosed April 1, 2013, with a terrifying disease of brain cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme), I refused to become a "bad" statistic. Instead, my path would only allow prayer, positive thinking and hope! Bills began to pile up, I had to quit my job of teaching British English to seniors, and there were so many doctors' appointments which I couldn't drive to. I used my time by combing the internet for help and I found Mission4Maureen.

The site was so encouraging! I asked for an amount to cover some very specific bills, and I was sent a check with no red tape. The ease at which my case was handled really encouraged me to keep canvasing the internet for other sources. Unfortunately, I found none that were as straight forward and helpful as this nonprofit. The 5-star rating should really be a 6-star because it is that wonderful.

With the help of many prayers, God's loving grace and my doctors, I am in remission and only go for Avastin infusion treatments once every two weeks. The brain cancer is gone. I can do things I enjoy, like traveling and being with my family. I treasure my husband Robert, who is the epitome of a supportive spouse, and my boys Jake and Justin. I found Mission4Maureen exactly when I needed it! Thanks!

I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumors on April 1, 2013. My prognosis was terminal - no stage I, II, III or IV. Removal by surgery was not an option. Online research showed life expectancy of about 3 months. That wasn't good enough for me. I began to do work on managing my own experiences and was lead to Mission4Maureen. This site gave me not only financial assistance, but encouragement to continue to live! Now, thanks to prayers, medicine, and positive thinking, I am what my oncologist calls a "Miracle Lady"! Latest MRI shows NO abnormalities - the brain cancer is GONE!

Mission4Maureen is the best non-profit program from which I received financial assistance. The application process is straight forward, communication is with real people and quick, the results are fast. Mission4Maureen proved to be the best at helping me out financially when I needed it. They are truly a GREAT nonprofit!

I cannot tell everyone how wonderful Mission4Maureen is! They have helped through a very difficult time! Jennifer was diagnosed with Stage 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma and the prognosis was NOT good. Married, with 4 young children, she was determined to beat this thing! Well, after 6 very difficult weeks of Chemo and Radiation daily, the tumor did not shrink at all. Very disappointing and scary. So, she went to Texas (we live in Michigan), to MD Anderson Cancer Center, where they operated on this inoperable tumor! AMEN!! They were able to remove about 80% of this tumor, so the prognosis now is much better!! But due to this, she has been off work for 6 months, and her husband for most of that time as well. With $0 income, Mission4Maureen's assistance has been invaluable and came at a time they felt they could not keep their head above water. Fear of losing your home during a time when everything else is falling apart is something they did not need! Thank you so much for helping!!!!

I was a 23 year old full time preschool teacher who just graduated from the University of Michigan. I had just been accepted into my graduate program when two months later I found out I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. Due to brain surgery I was forced to take a month off from work for recovery. Being an independent, working and paying my way through undergrad and soon to be graduate school money was tight. Mission for Maureen was my Knight in Shining Armour, my angel watching over me and the little help I needed to get ahead. I will forever be grateful to this organization for the help that they were able to give to me and many others.

My mother was diagnosed with grade 4 gliblastoma in 2012. It was a very devastating blow to our family as my brother was killes in a car accident only a few year earlier and my uncle sied from brian cance when I was a child. At first we were hopeful that the traditional surgery and chmo and radiation therapy would work. 10 months later though as with most glioblastoma's it had returned. Her Surgeon said he would not operate again and it was only a matter of time. He cancer doctors though had just happened to have gone to a study for amunotheropy trial at Duke. She happenes to be a perfect match. The bad thing was she has to go back and forth to Suke about 600 miles each way. Needlesss to say this took a HUGE toll on my parenta finances. There is not much help you can get for brian cancer and Mission4Maureen was truely a gift from God. Unfortunately my mom passed but my family will never forget their kindness.

To whom it may concern. please forgive me of my lateness. my goal was to write this review soon. i did not want to take an extra momment to post pond my review, considering how important this is, not just for me but for all readers. it is hard to convey, how important this is. it is not the kind of thing, one would think you would need to share, or would ever need to share, but here it is. i know thousand of quotations, words of other authors i spent my whole life reading but none have prepare me for this momment or humble me more.

Mission4Maureen is a class act through and through. We were in a financial predicament shortly after our 14-year-old son was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor and we applied for help. I remember the day I received the phone call that our application had been approved. I had just been on the phone with my Mom telling her I didn't know what we were going to do. She said thr Lord has always pulled through.
I got off the phone and received M4M's voicemail and tears streamed down my face. What a gift they are to lighten other's loads during a life challenge and all while honoring Maureen in the process. Can't sing their praises enough!

I was terminated by my employer at my son's bedside as we awaited his diagnosis. We had just found a tumor on his brain a few days before. It was horrible. As a single mother, I had no additional help to try and save my son's life. SSI only paid the bare minimum which didn't cover hardly anything with all the travel we had to do each day; 126 miles-one way to the Children's Hospital.
When I found Mission4Maureen, the electric company was prepared to turn off our lights. The next time we had to reach out to M4M; I was on the verge of losing my apartment and my vehicle.
The kindness that M4M has shown me and my son can never be repaid. They are angels among me. My son has since passed away but they continue to reach out in support sometimes and I think that is amazing...the feeling of not being forgotten.

Rosie and Mr. Walker are the most amazing people I've had the pleasure of meeting. They have helped me save my home and my car. My son, Ethan, was diagnosed with brain cancer in March of 2012.

Thank you Mission4Maureen for paying for half of our rent this month. #KatherineTheBrave was diagnosed with DIPG on June 2nd, and since then we have struggled to pay our bills, afford her medicine, survive just in general. David had to quit his job to stay home and help with Katherine. We have lots of fundraisers, and support, although getting a bill paid directly not only eases the load financially, it takes one thing off the list that we don't have to worry about during this uncertain and stressful time we are in. Thank you... Jaime King

So extremely thankful to Mission4Maureen for helping our family with bills that had gotten behind. It's been a long year and a half since our 12 yo son was diagnosed with brain cancer. The stress of a child with a life threatening illness is bad enough, but add on the financial stress that can come from it...well... there are no adequate words of thanks for helping ease our family's stress.

The people behind this were super fast, courteous, so very helpful. God bless you all.

I reached out to Mission for Maureen in hopes of some assistance. This organization was beyond helpful and what i appreciated most was i could use my funds at my convenience as long as possible.

My mom suffered through two years of Glioblastoma, a terminal, non curable form of brain cancer. She was brave and fought hard, but this illness left mom and our family emotionally and physically spent; we were inundated with ceaseless medical bills.

We wanted mom to focus on her health and well being, not to have to fret over bills or failing finances. We turned to several charities and foundations for assistance; the process was daunting. Then I found Mission for Maureen. The request was simple, easy to complete and they requested easy to obtain personal financial documents. Within thirty days they were kind enough to pay one of mom's most pressing medical bills.

We are so grateful to Mission for Maureen for their support of our mom and our family at such a difficult time. I thank them for making my moms road a little bit easier.

There can never be a more difficult moment for a family to receive notice that one of their loved ones has cancer. Even more, a cancer growing in the brain, one of the body's most important organs. The risks of operation are immensely high, and so is the levels of anxiety a family goes through in the course of operation and treatments. I knew that having a brain tumor would greatly affect my family emotionally. Not just so, but also economically. Even though I felt completely fine, my tumor could suddenly knock me out unconscious or blind me. Being a construction worker, usually performing my duties at 200+ft in the air, going through such sideeffects are at that times wouldn't be such a great experience. I had to stop working, putting my family on a strict budget, barely making ends meet. That is where Mission4Maureen came into my life as a huge blessing. They generously paid for my monthly home mortgage, going out of their way and went over the designated amount offered initially to pay for my high mortgage payment. My entire family is extremely grateful for such a generous gift Mission4Maureen provided us with. It definitely helped take away a lot of stress off my family I. May God continue blessing this wonderful organization in order for them to go on helping many more families going through such difficult situations.

My daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor in February of 2010. She's been through surgery, radiation and may need chemo in the future. It has taken a significant financial toll on my family. I am a single mother of two children and if it weren't for the generosity of organizations like MIssion4Maureen, I don't know where we'd be today. It brings tears to my eyes just writing this. Our story could be so much more difficult if we had to deal with this on our own. The assistance Mission4Maureen offered us was so overwhelming that to this day I tell people about them. Keep doing what you're doing, you're making lives better and helping families cope with difficult situations.

My partner of 16 years was diagnosis with Glioblastoma Multiforme in November of 2014. We are both unable to work at this time due to she is disabled and I need to stay home and care for her. She needs 24/7 care and Mission4Maureen assisted us with paying some utility bills and mortgage. The service is very much appreciated and needed. The communication I had with the people there was both friendly and respectful. The money that we didn't have to spend on the utilities and mortgage that month, was used for some needed equipment that she needed in the shower and bathroom, which has made life a little easier on both of us.

My two year old toddler named Jacqueline was diagnosed with ATRT, a rare brain cancer, in April of last year. Mission for Maureen came through for my family when we were desperately in need of financial assistance. My daughter is now three and on her way to recovery. If it weren't for agencies such as Mission for Maureen, I'm not sure we would have been able to handle the overwhelming burdens of our bills, especially since I was pregnant at the time, already had an autistic son, and I had to stay with Jackie in the hospital for months. My husband had lost his job due to the absences that could not be avoided. Thank you all so much for the help. MayGod continue to shine on your organization! Peace and blessings,

Missions4Maureen were angels in disguise helping us. My son, Andrew Laury, is 18 yrs old and he relapsed with a brain tumor on 12-23-14. He had his second crainotomy on 12-31-14, and our new journey soon began, and fast. We had to rent an apartment in Houston while he was doing radiation and chemo. Even though we don't live a long distance, Andrew has anaphylaxis shock and stops breathing during treatments. Just to much of a risk. We didn't have the money to do this on our own. This organization stepped in and helped my son. We are forever grateful to them.

Mission for Maureen is making a real difference everyday. Our son was diagnosed with an inoperable grade II brain tumor when he was just four years old. When we had to travel from Ohio to Califronia for surgery Mission for Maureen helped us pay for his life saving surgery. It was hard enough to just make the trip and the financial help we received lifted a huge burden allowing us to focus on our son when he needed us most! Our son is now seven years old and is still fighting. Mission for Maureen has continued to help us with medical bills as they keep coming in.

Mission 4 Maureen is a Godsend when your world feels like it is falling apart. What sets them apart from other "charities" is that they have personally been affected in the ways the clients they serve have been. They get it!!!!! M4M is family. They welcome you in with open arms. Asking for help is never easy and M4M makes the process so easy in a time when even the smallest task can seem overwhelming. GREAT organization. GREAT people.

When my husband, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 39, was finally no longer able to work, Mission4Maureen was there to help where no one else was. It's not just about the medical bills and traveling expenses. It was about losing the breadwinners income. We were lucky that we had wonderful insurance and family resources. But even that was not enough. Mission4Maureen understands that it is the day to day, month to month expenses that families ultimaltely need the most help with. Having one less stress, one less worry gives greater peace of mind to the patient and the caregiver. During the final weeks and days of my husbands life I was present. Not just physically, but mentally and spriritually because I was not concerned about how to pay the mortgage or keeping the lights on. Sure there was debt, but it was more manageable, thanks to Mission4Maureen.

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 .

I was diagnosed with CNS Lymphoma in June 2013. I was struggling not only with my health, but I had no insurance when I was admitted to the ER for brain surgery. My palliative nurse suggested reaching out to Mission4Maureen and I did. They made a wonderful contribution to my medical expenses and I am forever grateful for their generosity and they great work they do.

I had a brain tumor removed and with it all kinds of expenses. It was truly a blessing to be able to obtain some financial relief from Mission for Maureen. There are so many programs and services for other cancers, but brain cancer relief programs are far and few between.

I had 2 brain surgeries, one in 2012 and one almost a year later in 2013. I am 42 years old and I was diagnosed with a pediatric malignant tumor, usually seen in infants to 5 years old. The surgeries were successful and I went through 6 weeks of radiation: full brain, spine and boost to the tumor site. I was finished with treatment in January but I am still experiencing lingering syptoms. I have a husband of 18 years and we have boy/girl twins and a little girl all under 5 years old. Needless to say our lives have been a struggle, but I am so thankful to everyone at Mission4Maureen for their support. I am so deeply grateful for helping my family in a time of need. God bless, Kerri Musallet

The last 16 months of our journey with Glioblastoma stage 4 has been a test of faith and hope. After 3 Brain surgeries and countless trips to the team of doctors, the standard of care, the trail and now another treatment we keep praying this will be it. Our prayer now is that we will get the news that its at least in remission. I cant even stress the effects emotionally this has had on my husband, myself and our two boys. I can tell you the financial stress is overwhelming. Having Mission4Maureen did remove a bit of that stress last month by assisting with our household bills. I will be forever grateful to this organization.

June of 2013, glioblastoma stage 4 brain cancer came into our lives, unwanted and unexpected. Along with it came medical bills, daily household expenses that needed to be met, but money only stretches so far, our insurance company recommended that we contact mission for maureen to help with some of those bills. I did and will say, I was skeptical, but they came through with help in the form of assisting with a large bill that needed to be paid. This site, and organization is a wonderful godsend for those sick & in need of assistance. I can only hope that one day, I'll be able to donate back to them to keep this going.
