My uncle recently passed away. He had been sick for a very long time and no matter how hard we tried, the obstacles he faced seemed to always feel insurmountable. The system was failing him, then Maribo Cares came in. From the moment Marisa offered their help, my uncle had a place to stay, regular check-ins, and so much support. He felt like someone cared. We felt seen and heard, which is so vital to fighting this illness and not wanting to give up. My uncle Steve ended up requiring hospice care and passed away a few weeks later, but I truly believe that he wouldn’t have had the level of love and care that he received if not for Marisa.
Maribo Cares is genuine and kind and I highly recommend this organization to anyone who is in need of the kind of help they provide. Thank you!

This testimonial is long overdue! I have had the absolute pleasure of not only meeting Marisa, the founder of Maribo Cares, but of being blessed to have had the most amazing services from her organization. When I was feeling really crappy, Marisa offered me a wonderful hair color, haircut and style, complements of Maribo Cares to make me feel beautiful! She has provided me special holiday help for my two boys and me when I didn’t think it was possible. She makes my day simply when she just calls to see how I am doing! She makes me smile! I am so blessed and grateful for her unwavering and tireless efforts to help some of us who have cancer!
Love you Marisa!

Maribo CARES is an understatement!!!
I received a phone call the other day from none other than the Founder of Maribo Cares. All she did was check on me and see how I was doing, but it made me feel as if I was touched by an angel . If you need anything – just to talk, to hear a soothing voice, etc., reach out to Maribo Cares.

I give Maribo Cares 5 STARS! The fact that they will help with pet placement means a lot. My husband is lucky, even though we are separated, I will take the dogs and care for them. I can’t imagine them being put in a shelter while he has treatment. This is a great service and emotional help.
Our mother, Lucena, was diagnosed with stage four thyroid cancer in September 2014. After she had undergone major surgery and was released to go home, my family was in need of extra help to care for her. My husband, sister and I had work and take care of other family duties that did not allow us to be home with our mother during a good part of the day. Marisa Bock had volunteered to help out with my mother’s care during this very emotional and challenging time. We had known Marisa for several years and knew she was someone we could trust. She came to our home with a loving heart to help with our mother’s tube feeding, which was required every 3-4 hours daily. Marisa was kind and caring and made our mom feel safe and even found ways to make her laugh. Marisa helped us at a time that was stressful for our entire family. She gave us peace of mind knowing that she would attend to all of our mother’s needs while were at work. Marisa treated our mother like family and we are so thankful for her servant’s heart and caring nature.

Marisa Bock has been a close friend and more like a sister to me since 2000. When I learned about her breast cancer in 2013, I was devastated. However, I was so proud that she fought a hard battle and today she has been a strong survivor. I count my blessings for knowing Marisa. In 2014, my mom was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Marisa was there for my mom, as she helped care for her when my family and I could not. My family and I worked, and I had to also tend to my family, most especially my son, who was about 9 years old at the time. Marisa did my mom’s feedings, since my mom had to use a feeding tube to eat for months after she had her invasive, major surgery that left her with the removal of her trachea and part of her vocal chords due to the massive cancer that spread to her neck, back and lungs. By the grace of God her life was spared and our family was blessed by our caring friend, Marisa, who lovingly took care of my mom with such kindness and compassion.
Today, Marisa has reached out to a few of my best friends who are battling cancer. She has offered her services through her nonprofit organization, Maribo Cares. My heart is touched by her constant willingness to help others and how Maribo Cares is a beautiful way to bless and help others who have no resources to help them cope with cancer and recovery. Thank you Marisa, for your servant’s heart!
