Hope bloomed in Northwest Indiana this year as we painted our community yellow with daffodils.
The overwhelming support Northwest Indiana residents showed to the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days was incredible.
My heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in this campaign to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life.
This year, more than 2,900 daffodils were delivered, raising nearly $140,000. It is heartwarming to know so many of our fellow residents are dedicated to fighting back against this disease.
We would like to thank the volunteer drivers, on-site coordinators and daffodil processors, as well as everyone who supported this year’s Daffodil Days. Thank you to those who sent Gift of Hope bouquets to cancer patients in area hospitals and health care facilities.
