Nebraskans Can Help Fight Cancer by Sharing Daffodils

FREMONT – People all across Nebraska can fight back against cancer and share hope for those facing the disease by supporting the American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days®.

This longstanding program, which involves offering daffodils to donors every spring in appreciation for their contributions, is about more than just giving beautiful flowers; it is an opportunity to share hope for a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another Springtime from anyone’s life. Everyone can support the fight against cancer.

As the first flower of spring, the daffodil is the American Cancer Society’s symbol of hope for a world free of cancer. For a donation of $10, supporters will receive a bouquet of fresh-cut daffodils, and for a $15 donation they will receive a pot of mini daffodil bulbs. Order as a gift to cancer survivors, fighters and their families, or simply as a way to add a touch of cheer to your office or home. Every donation helps fight cancer through cure research, cancer prevention programs, and patient support programs.

The flowers will arrive in mid-March, weather pending. Anyone wishing to order daffodils can contact Diane Wilson at 402-880-8569,, or contact any Relay For Life team member or call 402-393-5801 for more information. The order deadline is Friday, February 8.
