Mission4Maureen strives to assist families experiencing economic hardship due to diagnosis and treatment of a brain tumor.
Mission4Maureen is a national brain tumor charity, in memory of Maureen Lowis. In college, Maureen studied to become a special education teacher and worked at that job until she married and began a family. Maureen lived happily with her husband and three small children until brain cancer took her life at the young age of 34.
Mission4Maureen works in her memory to help other families who are similarly afflicted and dealing with the financial hardships that are created through needing brain surgery, treatment and medication. Each year 200,000 people are stricken with brain tumors. Though not as large a patient population as other cancer groups, the emotional and financial turmoil is often more than a family can bear. Mission4Maureen strives to help qualified families in crisis so that they can concentrate on treatment and recovery. Visit our website at www.mission4maureen.org.
