Spring is on its way -- and so is the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days! Cherokee County residents have until February 21st 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," according to Brenda Parker, Cherokee 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.
Make a minimum $10 donation to the American Cancer Society to receive a bunch of approximately 10 daffodils. For a $25 donation to the Gift of Hope program, you help the American Cancer Society anonymously deliver beautiful bouquets -- arranged in vases -- to area cancer patients.
This year also features Shar N. Hope, a special Boyds™ Bear designed exclusively for the American Cancer Society's Daffodil Days Bear and a Bunch™ that can be ordered for a donation of $25.
Orders are now being taken by contacting Brenda Parker at 229-3109 or 434-2188. Daffodils arrive March 12-16, 2012.
According to Cherokee organizers, the daffodils will be delivered in Cherokee on March 13.
