It's time for the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days.

Hope arrives every spring with the blooming of daffodils. One of the first flowers of spring, the daffodil has come to symbolize hope for cancer patients and their loved ones for renewed life and a world free from cancer. To the American Cancer Society, this flower represents hope that cancer will one day be eliminated.

Proceeds from daffodil sales go to the American Cancer Society to fund research, education initiatives, advocacy activities and service programs for cancer patients.

Daffodil bunches, approximately 10 stems, are available with an $8 donation before February 14. With a $15 donation, a Gift of Hope bouquet will be delivered anonymously to a local cancer patient receiving treatment.

Half and full cases of daffodils are also available and make great gifts to recognize employees, customers and business associates.

This year also features Bea R. Hope, a special Boyds Bear designed for the "American Cancer Society's Daffodil Days Bear and a Bunch." With a $25 donation, you'll receive the bear and a bunch of daffodils.

New this year is the Dainty Daffodils, which features miniatures daffodils in a container. It is available for $12.

Local volunteer coordinators will take orders until February 8. The daffodils will be available the week of March 10.

To order daffodils, call KXRA-Radio in Alexandria at (320) 763-3131 by February 8. Leave your name, the number of bunches you would like to order and your phone number. The daffodils will be available for pick-up at KXRA-Radio on March 11 and 12 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

There will also be extra daffodils for sale at the station those days for anyone wanting to purchase at that time.

Volunteers will sell daffodils at Pete's County Market, Elden's Food Fair and Save Superstore, all in Alexandria, on March 15.

For information, call Mary Perrier at (320) 846-1125.

Funds raised through Daffodil Days supports the American Cancer Society to help eliminate cancer as a major health problem, diminish suffering from cancer and improve the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors.
