I cannot thank you enough for the patience, support and assistance you showed through the application process of Ms. Powell and most importantly Hope. This case was one that truly touched my heart. When you read the letter concerning Hope and what she has been through in her life, it is heartbreaking to know that children are experiencing this in their young lives.
Hope is the reason and example of why I became a Social Worker to be a voice for those who have none or find assistance for those in need, who otherwise would not receive none. So I thank you for having the same compassion. Without your help with this case, Hope despite all she has been through would be homeless this evening, while we sleep in our home and bed tonight.
So I thank you (Rosie), Larry and the organization Mission4Maureen for keeping a roof over Hope's head and providing assistance that one one else could do.
So Rosie I am sending you a "Have a nice day and a sleep good night sleep" tonight knowing that you made a difference in someone else's life.

This organization has helped many families I have referred for financial help. They have helped families in desperate need-families who could not find help from any other organization.
I am a pediatric oncology social worker at a children's hospital in Fort Lauderdale, FL. There are many days that parents of children with cancer ask for assistance to meet financial needs. Recently a mother of a 17 mo old boy just diagnosed with a brain tumor brought Mission4Maureen information to me that she had printed from the internet. She thought that maybe the foundation could help her if needed and help other families that come for treatment at the hospital. It turned out that she did need financial assistance because the demands of her child's illness, numerous hospital stays, mulitple operations and daily radiation treatment caused her to lose her job. She had to put her child's care first. It was so great to work with the Mission4Maureen foundation. The assistance that was provided to the family of the 17mo old child was phenomenal. The foundation was so easy to work with and they were able to assist to provide an emergent need. I have never worked with a foundation that was able to assist so quickly. They really made a difference in the life of this single mother so she could continue to care for her child. They also assisted a child whose parents could not afford her medication. I am so appreciative and I hope to continue to work with the foundation. Thank you Rosie, it is so great working with you. I hope you continue on the great work and help you are providing to many people. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Bernadette Brunetti, LCSW
The application was user friendly- short, concise, and easy to complete. I received warm and informative emails from a staff person at Mission4Maureen in a very time appropriate manner. Overall the experience could not have gone better and I'm eager to contact Mission4Maureen again on behalf of other patients and families in need of assistance.
Working in the therapy side of oncology I have seen first hand how difficult dealing with these diseases can be and the toll treatments can take on the indvidual/families. Without organizations like M4M many people will simply give up and not continue treatment. It can be tragic; however, M4M has helped many with gliobastoma multiforme tumors through financial crisis, in big and small ways, so that the stress of fighting to live does not need to include paying the rent.
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.
