American Cancer Society launches Daffodil Days


The American Cancer Society is ready to say goodbye to winter with the return of the annual Daffodil Days campaign.

The colorful first flower of spring represents a campaign that brings hope to cancer patients, their caregivers and families, while providing much-needed funding to support the groundbreaking research, programs and services of the American Cancer Society, the agency said in a statement.

“By supporting the American Cancer Society through Daffodil Days, you are not only warming the hearts of others with these beautiful first flowers of spring, but you are also helping to advance the American Cancer Society mission of creating a world without cancer through the critical areas of discovery, advocacy and patient support,” said Robert Elinskas, senior Community Development manager for the American Cancer Society.

Daffodils can be ordered by making a donation of $10 for a regular bunch or $15 for potted mini daffodils.

Tulips can be ordered by the bunch for a $15 donation.

For a $25 donation, donors can order a Gift of Hope – bunches of daffodils that the American Cancer Society delivers to patients in hospitals, treatment centers and other local facilities,the announcement added.

Orders are being taken through Feb. 22. Flowers arrive the week of March 21.
