|WESTON For more than 35 years, the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days program has been making a difference in the fight against cancer and providing hope for those facing the disease. |
Although Daffodil Days involves offering daffodils to donors every spring in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers; it is an opportunity to share hope for a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone's life.
Flower and product orders can be placed now through March 1 by calling the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345 or making an online donation at www.cancer.org/daffodils. Delivery occurs the week before spring, beginning March 14. According to the Society, this longstanding program, which historically coincides with the coming of spring, is expected to raise 1.2 million in Massachusetts to support the fight against cancer.
Daffodil Days offers a bouquet of products:
Dollars raised through Daffodil Days enable the society to offer free programs and services that help people fight cancer with courage and optimism, while it provides day-to-day help, emotional support and 24-hour information to help 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.
For more information about Daffodil Days, to request flowers, or to get involved with the program, contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345 or www.cancer.org/daffodils.
