Daffodils Saving Lives

Daffodils Saving LivesDaffodil Days is one of the American Cancer Society’s favourite and oldest fund raising programs. Though there is not much time left for supporters to place their orders for life-saving daffodils, the flowers themselves will be delivered in mid-March.

Yvette Livers, regional vice president for the Ohio division of the American Cancer Society’s central region says, “The daffodil represents the hope we have for a brighter tomorrow. Proceeds from Daffodil Days help the society continue its mission to prevent cancer, save lives and diminish suffering.”

Since the spring of 1973 volunteers have been distributing daffodils to homes, offices, hospitals, synagogues and churches, raising thousands of dollars to help cure cancer.

“I’ve personally delivered these daffodils, and it’s amazing to see the joy these flowers can put on people’s faces,” says Cathy Blackstone, society volunteer.
