Daffodil Days helps cancer patients

Daffodil Days is an annual fundraising event for the American Cancer Association that takes place across the state of Michigan. During that time, individuals are encouraged to select daffodils - yellow sympathy flowers - and send them to patients and their families who have been affected by cancer, according to MLive.com.

Each one of these spring flowers bouquet will be sent to the recipients on March 16.

The first ever official breakfast of Daffodil Days occurred on Wednesday, January 26. Speakers at the event talked about their personal experiences with cancer. Deliveries were also coordinated and recognized the participants in last year's program.

Daffodil Days is now in its 38th year and has delivered billions of daffodils, a separate article from MLive.com reports. The flowers are not only meant to show support for cancer patients and their families, but to raise money and spread awareness for the efforts of the American Cancer Association.

"I wanted to be able to encourage someone, to let them know that I know what they're going through, that I feel their pain," breast cancer survivor Shirley Bradley said at the breakfast, according to the news source.
