LETTER TO THE EDITOR - Daffodils vs cancer

Tuesday, April 3, 2001

More than 750 daffodils were sold during the event, raising more than $4,000 for the American Cancer Society's research, education, advocacy and service programs.

The outstanding support received proves that this community is truly committed to a future free from cancer. The daffodil is a symbol of hope for cancer patients.

We want to extend a special thanks to the many Daffodil Days volunteers who worked on the advance sales, promotion and coordination of the event. The Daffodil Days committee did an outstanding job of putting the event together.

We would also like to thank KKIA, KAYL and the Pilot-Tribune for their support and coverage of Daffodil Days. A special thank you goes to Helen Bosley and her staff at Hoffman's Flower and Candle Shop for so beautifully arranging the Gifts of Hope.

The American Cancer Society's 2015 goals are to reduce mortality rates by 50 percent and the number of incidences by 25 percent, while improving the quality of life for those affected by cancer. Without you, these goals will not be met.
