(Pennsylvania/New York) – The American Cancer Society is once again ready to say goodbye to winter with the return of our annual Daffodil Days. This 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.
“Cancer touches all of us in one way or another,” noted Dan Tobin, American Cancer Society Director of Regional Integrated Marketing. “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.”
Tobin added, “We are unbelievably grateful to everyone who supports our lifesaving mission through their participation in Daffodil Days. We are especially grateful to our regional corporate sponsor, UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, for their commitment to this campaign.”
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.
Orders are being taken now through February 22. Flowers arrive the week of March 21.
