American Cancer Society begins Daffodil Days
Spring is on its way, and so are the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days. Henry County residents have until Feb. 15 to place their orders for daffodils.
“With Daffodil Days, the hope goes beyond the symbol of the flowers. You know that with every bouquet you order, you’re making an actual difference in the lives of real people fighting cancer,” said Cindy Shumaker, Henry County Daffodil Days chair. “The Gift of Hope is so special for that reason. Compassionate individuals and companies are not only cheering on these courageous cancer patients; they’re saying that their community is behind them, that we’re funding research that is finding more cures every day.”
Ordering daffodils for friends, customers, and employees can brighten their days, desks, or dinner tables. Proceeds help the American Cancer Society to offer free programs and services that save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early, helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis, by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery, and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight.
Orders are now being taken by contacting Shumaker. Daffodils arrive the week of March 11. If you or your business would like to participate in Daffodil Days, or to order flowers, contact Shumaker at 319-931-1882 or visit cancer.org/daffodils.
