Daffodil drive gears up to fight cancer

One of the first flowers of spring, the daffodil, represents the hope that cancer will one day be eliminated. Every day, cancer patients face a journey requiring courage, strength and hope.

You can honor and support cancer patients in the St. Croix County community by placing an order for the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days Gift of Hope bouquet. This beautiful bouquet of daffodils set in a vase is delivered anonymously to area cancer patients. A Gift of Hope bouquet is available with a $25 donation.

During the campaign, the American Cancer Society will deliver thousands of daffodils to corporations, organizations and cancer patients throughout St. Croix County the week of March 9-13. Last year's campaign raised $2.5 million in the Midwest Division, Inc.

For a minimum $10 donation to the American Cancer Society, you will receive a bunch of approximately 10 daffodils. A $75 donation will reserve your stunning Sunshine Bouquet with fresh greenery in a beautiful vase.

This year also marks the addition of Carrie N. Hope, a special Boyds™ Bear designed exclusively for American Cancer Society Daffodil Days Bear and a Bunch ™ that can be ordered for a donation of $25.

Corporations and groups can use Daffodil Days to demonstrate community support by becoming a local Daffodil Days sponsor. Daffodils can be ordered until Feb. 13. Call 1-877-423-9122 ext. 210.
