Mission4Maureen is such an amazing organization for many reasons. It was started in honor of Maureen Lowis, a beautiful, 34 year old mother of 3, who died from glioblastoma multiforme in March 2005. Maureen was appalled by the staggering cost of brain cancer treatments. M4M was founded to financially help patients of brain cancer. We have stopped foreclosures and evictions, helped keep utilities on, help pay for travel for treatment, and for the cost of medication. Research funds are important, but M4M helps patients who are struggling NOW. We help babies from St. Jude's hospital to adults who have lost their jobs. The passion of Maureen is very evident in this organization founded in her memory.
As President of Mission4Maureen (and father), I am honored and determined to carry on Maureen's spirit to help others who suffer from brain cancer. Maureen was always a loving and giving person, putting others before herself was paramount even when she fought this awful disease. It is with Maureen's spirit that Mission4Maureen will help others with brain cancer as this was one of her last wishes.
This is a great foundation, helping many in need. All donations go to those who apply and are in need, with very little overhead cost. The foundation is growing rapidly and receiving grants successfully.
