American Cancer Society planning annual Daffodil Days

February 08, 2008

For 35 years, the American Cancer Society has been making a difference in the fight against cancer and providing hope for those facing the disease through its Daffodil Days program.

Although Daffodil Days involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers - it is everyone's opportunity to share hope for a world free of cancer. This year's Daffodil Days are coming to Maryland on March 10-16.

The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers - anyone from school children to corporate CEOs - to assist in taking requests for, packing and delivering daffodils during February and March.

To help make a difference in the fight against cancer through Daffodil Days, contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-787-4337.

Maryland residents have until Feb. 20 to place requests for daffodils. For a donation of $10, supporters will receive a bouquet of fresh-cut daffodils and more importantly, the knowledge that they are helping defeat cancer. This year also marks the addition of Bea R. Hope, a special Boyds Bear designed exclusively for the American Cancer Society's Daffodil Days Bear and a Bunch that is available for a donation of $25, which includes a bouquet of 10 daffodils.

Dollars raised through Daffodil Days enable the Society to offer free programs and services that help people fight cancer with courage and optimism, while providing physical and emotional support and financial information to ease the cancer experience. Additionally, daffodil contributions provide the Society with much-needed dollars to fund groundbreaking cancer research, educate people about the importance of cancer prevention and early detection and advocate for meaningful public health policies that benefit the community.
