“I have truly enjoyed volunteering for American Cancer Society Daffodil Days.  It is a great way to give back to the community while helping the American Cancer Society raise money to help in its mission of eliminating cancer as a major health problem,” said Mary Hessling], Daffodil Days volunteer.  “At this time of the year it is wonderful to be among so many flowers. It really does give you hope.”
New to Daffodil Days this year is the Gift of Hope. With multiple donation levels, donors have the opportunity to support the Society’s mission by delivering an anonymous, free bouquet of daffodils along with program and services information to cancer patients in hospitals and treatment centers in communities across Pennsylvania.

A special edition Daffodil Days vase with 10 flowers or Vase and a Bunch is also available for a donation of $15.
