Daffodils – A Sign of Hope for Cancer Patients

February 20, 2012

INDIANAPOLIS - For over 30 years, The American Cancer Society's Daffodil Days has been sharing the sign of spring and brightening the days of many being treated for cancer.

Jodi Pickens, a manager with the American Cancer Society, says you can order flowers for yourself or a loved one, or send blooms anonymously.

"Our Gift of Hope program is where, for a minimum $25 donation, we as The American Cancer Society will deliver anonymously a bouquet of daffodils and a vase that will be handed out to folks who are undergoing treatment for cancer."

Pickens says it's up to you to decide if you're going to keep the flowers or give them away.

"Folks can order a bouquet of daffodils, which is 10 stems. For a $10 donation they'll get a bouquet of those 10 fresh-cut daffodils. For a donation of $15 they'll get a bouquet of daffodils and a vase."

Pickens says you can become a volunteer coordinator for Daffodil Days, take orders for flowers and give hope to people and families dealing with cancer.

"Daffodils, as many people know, are one of the first flowers of spring and that beautiful little yellow bloom has come to symbolize hope for cancer patients."

You can purchase daffodils until March 9, with flowers to be delivered the week of March 19, by calling 800-227-2345.
