Cynthia's Flowers at Worthington Farmers Market (Indoor)

We're teaming up with Cynthia's Flowers and OSUCCC-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute to make a difference! 

Cynthia Rudolph passed away at age 40 from lymphoma leaving behind a husband and young son. As a patient, no matter what Cynthia faced - she always stayed positive. It was important to her that others could still see beauty in life despite having to go through cancer treatments like herself. Due to weak immune systems and the risk of infection on inpatient cancer floors, live plants and flowers are prohibited. Cynthia’s desire to add some cheerfulness drove her to develop a simple solution: create brightly
colored flowers made from tissue paper.

Now, with the help of her family and friends, bunches of Cynthia’s Flowers have been delivered to various hospitals throughout the country, and today, Cynthia is remembered for her beautiful smile and her belief in remaining strong and positive throughout treatment. Her legacy continues providing hope and inspriration to others.

YOU can help continue Cynthia's legacy... Join us to make paper flowers! 

On Saturday, January 21st, during our monthly Market Sprouts activity, we will be making paper flowers to share with local hospitals. Market goers can donate their flowers or take it to someone with cancer who needs some extra cheer. 

Make a flower. Share some hope.
