Prayers From Maria Vertical

Prayers from Maria

Prayers from Maria was inspired by the prayers of seven-year-old Maria McNamara, who lost her battle against a brain stem glioma in 2007. While Maria was receiving treatment at St. Jude, she prayed for other sick children that she met, hoping the doctors would find a way to help them and make them better. Prayers from Maria, founded by Maria’s parents Ed and Megan McNamara of Avon Lake, Ohio, is dedicated to answering Maria’s prayers by funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for the deadliest childhood brain tumors and bringing hope to children and families who deal with the disease’s hardships. Our Planting Hope sunflower garden in Avon, Ohio, has attracted thousands and elevated awareness and fundraising for childhood brain cancer research. Our most recent $250,000 grant to Case Western Reserve University is funding cutting edge research exploring the use of nanotechnology to more effectively and less toxically treat children’s brain tumors.

Our marathon team, known as the Sunflower Striders, has raised over $100,000 in research dollars by participating in 10 marathons over the past 6 years. Participation in the Cleveland Marathon alone has raised over $65,000. Please support our team by either joining it, or by making a donation.

Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital

Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation “Rehab Runners” Group is fundraising to directly benefit the young patients they work with through support of the “Helping Hands” initiative.

Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation serves a very diverse pediatric population – ranging in age from infancy through young adulthood. The pediatric caregiving team treats children with a wide range of conditions including those who have sustained a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, suffered from a stroke, have cerebral palsy, have cardiac and respiratory conditions, are battling cancer, are in need of general strengthening and endurance after having various surgeries, or have other health complications.

These patients amaze the staff every day with their strength and courage, but unfortunately, many of these children are not able to purchase the equipment they need through insurance.  The “Helping Hands” initiative allows the hospital to purchase and provide necessary equipment to those families in need. It also allows the Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation to obtain specialized equipment for the most complex patients and to modify and upgrade existing equipment.
