I followed Maureen's story when she was sick with glioblastoma, the same cancer that took my mom ten months later. In her, I saw a woman with the same spirit as my mom- infectious, warm, caring. I watched as her community supported her and her family and it appears contiues to do so. This family and organization is such a positive part in the fight against brain cancers and for brain cancer families!
Mission4Maureen is the most amazing nonprofit organization I have ever been involved with. It has opened up my mind and heart about cancer, what can be done to help those with cancer and how amazing people are that you don't even know who have a loving and Godlike spirit. I have referred people to the organization that have people in their life that are fighting the cancer and might need guidance, help, prayers, resources. When I first learned about Mission4Maureen, it was a small website to update people on Maureen's illness when she was sick and her family. I was so addicated to learn how she was doing, pray for her and connect with others who shared the same interest. I have continued to follow the organizaiton and website and love to get updates on how the Maureen's family is doing and what wonderful things the organization has accomplished for others that are suffering from cancer. Although Maureen is no longer with us here on earth, her legacy and that of Mission4Maureen lives on so strongly...it's amazing!!
I think this is a fantastic organization that reaches out to real families who are suffering the emotional, physical and financial pains of cancer. This organization was born out of love of a lost family member and can truly relate to each person who reaches out to it to request assistance.
Mission4Maureen is a wonderful organization ! Though so much time and money goes into cancer research, little is spent on brain cancer. This organization has not only helped with research but also has helped so many families personally through their cancer journey. Maureen would be so proud!
Mission4Maureen is one of the best charities around because it helps people who are really having trouble financially. Other cancers have many foundations that help patients, but brain cancer patients don't get much attention or help. Mission4Maureen is helping to fill a gap in caring about and helping these patients and their families.
My best friend Monica Young Henry is Maureen's husband's aunt. I found out early on about Maureen's diagnosis. Though I live in New York and the Lowis' in Ohio, I was always kept apprised of Maureen's health status from her Aunt Monica. I would occassionally hear from Terrence as well - we shared the fact that he grew up not far from me. Maureen's selflessness, faith, love for family and friends inspires me still. I never met her personally, but I felt like I knew her. There were so many ups and downs with this debilitating illness - I couldn't imagine how this bright, beautiful young couple and parents of 3 children could cope. And yet they did. When Maureen passed away, fittingly, on Good Friday - I felt like I had lost a friend. I pray for her family every night. It is a priviledge to know this family - they are remarkable especially in the way they have turned a tragedy into something so positive and Maureen continues to help others. I proudly wear a bracelet that one of Maureen's friends made. It is my "Angel" bracelet. Barbara Biuso - South Setauket, NY 7/28/2009
I discovered Mission4Maureen on Facebook through a mutual friend. She informed me of the cause and I am elated to be a member of this cause. I would have loved to have met Maureen, through her mission I am getting the chance.
M4M is truly a great organization with well-minded, people who go out of their way to help others in times were help is so desperately needed. Simple acts go a long way. This is a great organization and I support everything you do.
The M4M foundation allows families to focus on the business of getting well and not having to worry about how the bills are going to be paid. There are so many charities working on research which is great but to have a charity that focuses on helping families with the day to day it rare and so important. They have helped so many people and I know with Maureens help will continue to do this great work.
A great resource and a site that makes you feel good about doing something. The mission statement is spot on too.
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 is a very dedicated nonprofit organization to assist those who have cancer.Their team is very helpfull, professional and compassionate in what they do.
