This nonprofit is the best one I have ever heard of! My husband is 33 years old and was diagnosed in 2015 with a grade 2 oligodendroglioma which was successfully removed with a craniotomy. My husband has been battling ALOT of health issues and setbacks ever since his diagnosis which has caused many hospital visits, ER visits, specialist visits, chemo, etc. We do have good health insurance through my employer but we also have 4 children 10 and under so as you can imagine, keeping up with all the medical bills is VERY challenging. We were awarded a very generous grant through Mission 4 Maureen which has been a life saver! It just eases a little bit of the stress off of my shoulders so I can focus more on my husband and children. I appreciate this program so much and feel so blessed to have been referred to it. THANK YOU MISSION 4 MAUREEN!
As one of Maureen's uncle's, I have been aware of this great organization since it's inception. I have seen firsthand the dedication, commitment and burning desire to make a difference. When the economy hit the skids and donations were more limited, M4M pushed on finding new donors and new fund raising ideas. Because of those efforts, the other people giving a review, were given a reason to do so.
The annual walk in New York for many years brought donors and participants together. The May days drawings increased donation while having a little fun. The BOOMBOX golf tournament has become an annual success that keeps giving back to those who need it the most.
The money donated does not get spent on administration! It goes to people like YOU, Your neighbor,
your friend or relative. That is why I love and support the Mission 4 Maureen non-profit!
Misssion4maureen has touched my heart in many levels. Knowing the Fmaily of Maureen and how with her passing and their determination to keep her light shining has been extrordinary to me. The foudation has created a way for people who suffer with brain cancer and related cancers to have a way to receive help and also information, to help there situation. They go to great lengths to reach out to whomever is in need and I commend the foudation on all of their efforts to help others in need. They are truly a blessing.
No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. A catchy phrase, but how many people actually take it seriously? How many think, I'll leave it up to someone else? I don't have the time. It's a busy day at work today. I'm too busy once I get home. Or...I want to relax. I want to just do nothing. In reading the stories of patients on the Mission4Maureen website, I am always struck by how many of them were just living normal lives. Driving along...had a sinus infection...had a headache...got blurry vision. They went to the doctor or they brought their child to the doctor and heard the words "brain tumor." The sad truth is that by the time you hear those words, it is almost too late to be saved. But these patients fight and live and hope....that everyone will do something to help them and others like them. I can't always contribute as much as I'd like but I can support the good works of Mission4Maureen by telling its story.
As a family friend I experienced first hand the heartache and turmoil that Maureen's family experienced during her illness and during these past several years sincer her passing. M4M has helped to turn this terrible tragedy into a hopeful opportunity for others. M4M has reached out to many and my favorite event is the "May Days" which honors Maureen in a special way as her greatest joy in life was her children and she was such an exceptional mother. Thanks for all of your great efforts to help others with brain cancer.
I recently learned of the Mission4Maureen Foundation from a friend. What a wonderful charity to help families fighting cancer and a beautiful way to honor the memory of Maureen.
I have watched this charity grow from a small organization of family and friends to a thriving, growing charity that is now receiving grants to supplement their fund raising activities. They have helped patients all across the USA from Connecticut and Delaware to Florida, California and Washington. Even though the economy has slowed donations, Mission4Maureen never gives up. They work everyday to try to find ways to help all of its applicants.
Brain cancer is terrible, but at least Mission4Maureen is there to help families deal with the staggering healthcare costs associated with treatment. M4M is doing wonderful work.
M4M epitomizes what a charity truley should be. Every dollar earned goes straight to help a family that has been stricken with this horrible disease. Maureen devoted her life to children. Her devotion is being carried out each and every day through this tremendous foundation. Keep on Keepin on M4M.
I am happy to be a supporter and donor of Mission4Maureen. A horriffic tragedy for the families of Maureen Lowis which plunged all those who loved Maureen into a sea of darkness, has now resulted in hope and possibilities for other families battling this terrible disease. This organization brings financial help, emotional stability, and a level of comfort and compassion that can only be given by those who have already walked this road. I believe Mission4Maureen is destined to grow and bloom, so that other cancer patients can live and fight without any further worry.
Mission4Maureen is an awesome non-profit charity. The legacy of Maureen is extended through this chaity 100 fold. Spiritually,Financially, and personally,it supports families during critically tough times.
