Maria’s field of Hope is the Prayers from Maria Foundation first planted the Sunflower field in 2014 to gracefully draw attention to the lack of funding for childhood cancer. The field was inspired by the memory and spirit of Maria McNamara, planted as a way to love and honor the courageous children who are battling cancer and those we have lost. The field is located in Avon, Ohio and is really a beautiful and heartbreaking atmosphere at the same time. The field itself is very beautiful with its acreage of sunflowers spreading for miles. However at the same time, each field is lined with yellow signs and pictures of precious children that have either lost there battle with cancer or currently in the middle of battling cancer.
I started offering mini photography session at Maria’s field for families to celebrate and take in the beauty of the field. I also am happy to donate 50% of my earning to Maria’s foundation in order to help find a cure for Childhood cancer. 2018 might have marked that last time the sunflower field will take place in Avon, Ohio.
I am hopefully Maria’s foundation will find another plot of land and continue this amazing foundation they have started.
