Public Support Needed in Daffodil Days Campaign

American Cancer Society Volunteers Offer Bouquets in the Community 

Celebrate the arrival of spring and bring hope to cancer patients in your community by purchasing fresh cut daffodil bouquets.  Daffodils will be available to purchase throughout the week of March 18 in your local community.  Daffodil sales are led by community volunteers and will take place at the following times and locations: 

When:  March 19, 2013 (while supplies last) 

Where: Paradis Shop n Save, 361 South Street, Calais, ME 

While the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days campaign involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions, it’s more than just giving beautiful flowers. It is everyone’s opportunity to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. 

Dollars raised through the Daffodil Days campaign will help the American Cancer Society fund groundbreaking cancer research, provide up-to-date cancer information and education, advocate for public health policies that benefit the community and provide services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families. 

About the American Cancer Society: The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end cancer for good. As a global grassroots force of three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping you stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early, helping you get well by being there for you during and after a diagnosis, by finding cures through groundbreaking discovery and fighting back through public policy. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing more than $3.8 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, an estimated 13.7 million people in America who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year.
