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.

I was diagnosed with a very aggressive (GBM) brain tumor 6 years ago, I was very lucky to survive. With the help of Mission for Maureen, my stress was somewhat relieved by their financial help with gas cards for my trips to the hospital, and dinner cards at popular restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised by their support at a time when life seemed to be slipping away towards an uncertain future.

Thank you Mission4Maureen :-)

I was diagnosed in 2009 with Glioblastoma, there was a very high probability I would die within a year, those were very dark days indeed. Mission4Maureen offered a ray of sunshine which helped me financially to get through my long drives to my chemo appointments. I was stunned by the charity this private couple offered me, for which I am eternally grateful. Thank you Mission4Maureen for your selfless generosity! :-)

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. The staff is amazing, their gift is in their loving support, that means the world to us.

Thank God for this wonderful organization reaching out to help those in need!

Our 6 year old son Oliver has been battling a brain tumor for the past year and a half. We have had to travel out of state for surgery and out of network treatment is very expensive. The financial burden weighs heavy on us as we try to focus on getting our son the care he needs. Mission4Maureen has been an answer to our prayers! They reached out to us when we need it most and have come along side us to help lift the heavy burden. They truly care about our struggle and their help provides so much hope during such a difficult time. We are so grateful for their support and pray that Mission4Maureen will continue to provide hope to families dealing with the financial burden that comes along with the diagnosis of a brain tumor.

With our most sincere thanks,
The Demrovsky family

We were very thankful we found Mission4Maureen. What a great organization! Our 11-year old daughter Emma was diagnosed with a brain tumor and soon the medical bills began to skyrocket. It has been nine months and the bills keep coming. This nonprofit more than met our expectations and helped us to pay off one hospital completely. What a blessing. We would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone seeking financial assistance.

Thank you so much for what you have done for me and my husband. If I could give you more than 5 stars, I definitely would! My husband is fighting a terrible brain tumor right now and Mission4Maureen was a prayer answered! With me out of work to help take care of him, and David not working, we were at a loss of what to do to help pay our bills. Mission4Maureen helped ease our struggles and our minds. Thank you so much for caring. The money absolutely helps, but we will forever be grateful knowing people who have never even met us, care so much. God Bless.
