The Prayers from Maria Foundation is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors known as gliomas; raising public awareness about gliomas and bringing hope to children and their families who deal with the hardships of this disease.
The Sunflower is the flower of hope. It is bright, cheerful and beautiful just like a child. Our children, like the sunflower, share their warmth and radiance with us, always reminding us of what life is all about.
“In the language of flowers the sunflower speaks of adoration and of the warmth and healing of God’s all-embracing love.”
