Nancy Siegler of Cameron Park, California knows first-hand the hope, strength and power of the sunflower. She started planting sunflowers last year after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
This year, her original 30 plants turned into 310, with 26 species, some sending flowers 16 feet into the air.
Siegler wanted to share this symbol of hope with her community, so she devised a garden fundraiser for breast cancer. The seed of her idea inspired the people so much that she received four times the number of donations expected, in turn catapulting her into various follow-up projects that have blossomed like weeds.
