Our Sunflower Friends of Ellis County

Because kids shouldn't have to fight illness alone!

Our Sunflower Friends mission is to make a positive impact in the lives of critically ill children and their families. We will accomplish our mission by investing financial, emotional and spiritual support to those we sponsor. As a result, we will glorify God by reaping a harvest of love, hope, and peace in an otherwise defeating situation.
