I chose Prayers From Maria for several reasons. This non-profit organization helps children with gliomas-the deadliest childhood brain tumors. Over 97% of children with diffuse pontine gliomas die within 3 years. No child should have that small of a chance at survival. I’m an Ohio native and this is an Ohio based charity. They give back to the community by planting a beautiful sunflower field every year. I hope to bring an awareness to, as well as bring funding to the research and cure for, glioma brain tumors.

About Prayers From Maria

Prayers from Maria 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. Thanks to the generous support of so many, Prayers from Maria has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to research of these deadly tumors in children.
