When someone is dealing with a brain tumor, it can seem like pressure is coming at you from every side. It hasn't been easy to help our son deal with pain and treatments, help our other children deal with the process, and be strong as a husband and wife together. We are so grateful for Mission4Maureen. They helped with some of the financial pressure we face in a very understanding, simple, and time efficient manner, so that we can focus on our family. Thank you so much!

What a great organization. . . The donation couldn't have come at a better time. My husband was diagnosed with his brain tumor last Sept, exactly 3 months after we were married, knocked us on our butts. He didn't even think something like this could have happened to us. Over 12K in our non covered expenses isn't the way you want to start a marriage. Mission for Maureen wiped away one bill in it's entirety. Thank you so much for your help. Apply if you need help and GIVE if you can, we need it.

Mission4Mauren served me and my family while my daughter was hospitalized at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for more than a month. My experience with this organization helped lifted a big burden off me and my family. I pray that God continue to bless this organization and help it prosper more in the future to come. Get connected with Mission4Maureen and I guarantee they will help ease all worrys and pain that your family is facing. I thank God for the friendly phone calls and also the donation they made for our family. My plans in the future as God bless me financially, I will be donating to this organization in the memory of my daughter Ms. Aubrianna Shanelle Jones. Again thank you Mission4Maureen and my Gods prosperity rest upon your organization!

I am the recipient of financial assistance from Mission 4 Maureen when I had a brain tumor in 2009. Had it not been for this assistance I would have lost my only means of transportation to receive chemotherapy 3 hours away from my home. I am incredibly grateful for the assistance I received and hope M4M is able to continue to help others in need for a long time to come.

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.

Mission4Maureen really took a financial burden off my chest as I wasn't able to work for about 4 months. The response I felt was overwhelming for me. I felt like I had know the people for a long time. They are a very caring group. Being diagnosed with a brain tumor has enough stress in it self. This mission is unbelievable. I greatly appreciate them.

Mission4Maureenwas a blessing to find. Our daughter was diagnosed with an ependymoma

After suffering a seizure she was rushed to 2 different hospitals . Arriving to Westchester Medical where there they saved her life. We were began receiving hospital bills ,medication bills her rehabilitation expenses and living cost was so much to bare. We researched the internet and found this wonderful nonprofit organization . We read the story and felt a real connection with them. At that point we decide to ask for help. This organization is wonderful they helped us with our daughter medical bill and help us breathe a little better while we helped our daughter get back on her feet. We still are in her 2 1/2 year mark only half way to her remission point but we couldn't have done it with out MISSION4MAUREEN.

Our story is begins with the sudden illness of our 13 year old daughter who began having horrible headaches. After some time going through testing and visits with her doctor we were prepared to visit a neurologist. The day before she had a seizure in our home. After the initial hospital we were told she had a mass/tumor on her brain. Westchester medical is were she under went a 12 hours of surgery. 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 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.
