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!

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.

THEY WERE VERY EFFICIENT AND QUICK IN RESPONDING TO OUR REQUEST FOR FINANCIAL HELP.
THEY HELPED WITH THE MEDICAL BILLS IN A WAY -HOWEVER IT WAS IN AMOUNT - TO RELIVE PART OF OUR BURDEN.
THANKS TO MISSION 4MAUREEN THAT DOES SUCH EFFICIENT WORK.
AND MANY THANKS AGAIN FOR HELPING MY WIFE WHO HAS A BRAIN LYMPHOMA.

My 12 year old son was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma a brain cancer. I was no longer able to hold a job due to his extreme high dose treatments. 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. They made our first few months getting back on our feet incredible. 5 stars is not enough for this organization in my eyes. Extremely satisfied client.

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.

When I learned I had brain cancer in January of 2014 I was devastated. Mission for Maureen took some burden off the costs having to drive to the next town every day to get radiation. Thanks doesn't seem like enough!

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.

Mission4Maureen was a such a blessing to our family during this very stressful time, they brought immediate relief and peace to our family by stepping up and helping with the high out of pocket medical expenses. We are very grateful to them always. (The best of any organization we contacted)!!!

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.

I couldn't work because my daughter was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. We were devastated!! Mission for Maureen helped relieve some of the pressure by helping us to pay some bills. That was a Blessing because I do have other children to take care of in addition to my sick baby. They even sent her Christmas gifts, unfortunately, she passed Christmas morning 2014. Hazel Brown is now our Angel. Thanks Mission for Maureen. We will forever be grateful for your help.

In todays world it's hard to make a go of things with one income and a family of four. I reached out to Mission4Maureen and asked for some assistance paying some household bills. I submitted the application online and the next day I recieved an email stating they had approved our application that we requested $1500 to pay some of our bills. Amazing correspondences, always getting right back to me. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

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,
Damon and Sonya Solomon

Our daughter was diagnosed with cancer last year and once her treatment was over and we could finally focus on getting back to normal life and picking our lives together, Mission4Maureen was there for us and helped us with our rent payment. They were so kind, professional, quick in response and generous. We loved it and appreciate their help, love, and support so much!

I cannot express enough gratitude to Mission4Maureen for helping my son. No parent should ever receive the phone call we got last August about him. Meeting all his financial needs while working through the nightmare was overwhelming. I thank God for these people who are there to help, and I am also so thankful to God for getting us all through it and that my son is now expecting a full life ahead.
Thank you Mission4Maureen!

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.
