CLEVELAND - When it comes to annual cancer funding from the federal government, childhood cancer only receives 4 percent of those funds.
The McNamaras knew they had to do more after losing their daughter Maria to cancer at age 7.
Just last year, Prayers From Maria was able to donate $250,000 dollars to research at Case Western Reserve University Cancer Center.
The challenge has been about getting to the brain tumor, without harming the brain.
