Mary died at the age of 7.

Her parents started Maria Children’s Cancer Foundation Prayers to fund worldwide research into causes, prevention and treatments for deadly brain tumors in children.

The Sandusky field is only two years old.

It is free to visit, but donations help support research.

You can also dedicate a sunflower to the loss of a loved one.

They say the flowers are limited now, but once the bloom starts, more grows in the fields every day.

Maria’s Field of Hope in Avon is still growing, they say, and not yet in bloom.
