This nonprofit is the best one I have ever heard of! My husband is 33 years old and was diagnosed in 2015 with a grade 2 oligodendroglioma which was successfully removed with a craniotomy. My husband has been battling ALOT of health issues and setbacks ever since his diagnosis which has caused many hospital visits, ER visits, specialist visits, chemo, etc. We do have good health insurance through my employer but we also have 4 children 10 and under so as you can imagine, keeping up with all the medical bills is VERY challenging. We were awarded a very generous grant through Mission 4 Maureen which has been a life saver! It just eases a little bit of the stress off of my shoulders so I can focus more on my husband and children. I appreciate this program so much and feel so blessed to have been referred to it. THANK YOU MISSION 4 MAUREEN!

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.

The Mission 4 Maureen is wonderful. They helped us save of familly home of more than 41 years by making our house payment for 6 months. Additionally, they accepted donations from others on our behalf. We simply cannot thank the Mission 4 Maureen enough. My daughter has been battling primary brain cancer for 15 years. I have had to refinance many times in order to offset the high cost of having brain cancer, the high cost of uncovered expenses, travel for treatment such as brain surgery, etc. I am also disabled and feared losing the only home we have ever known. The kindness the Mission 4 Maureen showed us was inspiring, and we hope we will be able to pay it forward one day. We are forever grateful to the Mission 4 Maureen. Sincerely, Jan OBrien Tacoma, Washington

For ten years our son, Cole has battled a terminal Brain cancer. 19 Surgeries, 3 years of chemotherapy and 7 weeks of Radiation. During this horrific time we hav endured so much, I honestly don't know how we all are still here and together. A few months ago, our Cancer Navigator introduced us to Mission4Maureen. This organization was not only prompt on helping us with our needs but really wanted to help us. Mission4Maureen paid our housepayment for 6 months,electric, gas and water bill so we wouldn't loose service. We have never had a n organization that helped so much. In October of 08 my husband was fired after 15 years with one company. He was then denied unemployment 2 times! April of this year my husband found a job, drastic pay cut, but for 7 months we had ZERO income! I am trying to recover from a back surgery, but my latest MRI results showed more diseases in my spine. It dosen't look too good for me. 2 years ago I was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor in January. A meningioma in my frontal lobe. To top that off, I am just now in remission from Ovarian cancer that I was diagnosed with at age 26. Our family continues to endure horrific health concerns and financial. I am not sure why but I will tell you something, We thank God for Mission4Maureen. Without you guys we wouldn't be able to keep our house, the place we all come together and pray, love and adore one another. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Mission For Maureen stepped in when we were in dire need of help... they are absolutely wonderful!! Our daughter, which was only 23 months old at the time, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, and I, her mother, stopped working to stay at home to care for her. Our household income immediately went from two incomes down to one and a lot of extra expenses were added for her care. Mission For Maureen completely understood our situation and did not hesitate to help us tremendously. One month of our house payment was paid and two months of utility bills were paid as well!! This was soooo helpful, I cannot even explain how thankful we were. It allowed us to put all of our focus in the right places instead of worrying about what we were going to do to make ends meet. We appreciate them so much and words cannot express how thankful for Mission For Maureen being a part of our lives.
