Daffodil Days

Daffodil Days at KWU
Celebrating Daffodil Days is about more than sharing beautiful flowers; it’s about dedicated people sharing hope for a world free of cancer.  Thanks to generous support of the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days program, the Society is helping people face cancer every day in every community.  Dollars raised through Daffodil Days enable the Society to offer free programs and services that help people fight cancer with courage and optimism.
Additionally, contributions are making a difference by providing the Society with much-needed dollars to fund groundbreaking cancer research, educate people about the importance of cancer prevention and early detection, and advocate for meaningful public health policies that benefit everyone.  Only with your support can we continue to help those touched by cancer, empower people to fight back against this disease, and save more lives. Hope for a world free of cancer starts with you.

Daffodils are one of the first bright flowers of spring.  They come to offer hope that the dark and cold of winter will have an end with the light and warmth of spring to follow.  They have become the perfect symbol for those fighting cancer, and their families, of that hope.  Please know that your purchase is a gift to them.
