Mission Statement

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.


About the Daffodil Days Program:

Daffodil Days is one of the American Cancer Society's oldest and most beloved fundraising programs. As the first flower of spring, the daffodil represents hope and renewal. To the American Cancer Society, the daffodil symbolizes the hope we all share for a future where cancer no longer threatens those we love. For 35 years, Daffodil Days has empowered people to make a difference in the fight against cancer by raising funds and awareness to help beat the disease. Daffodil Days involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions, but it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers - it is everyone's opportunity to share hope for a world free of cancer. By giving daffodils to friends, family members, local businesspeople, and even cancer patients, you are really giving hope by enabling the Society to offer free programs and services to improve the lives of people facing cancer.


In a climate where hope is as important as ever, bring hope to those who most need it! Hope is contagious and you can help spread it. We are looking for volunteers over the age of 18 to help the American Cancer Society with our Daffodil Days Program on Monday, March 16, 2009. The American Cancer Society is located on 132 West 32 nd Street, New York, NY 10001. We will be looking for individuals for light lifting (carrying boxes weighing 5-10 pounds) from 7am to 1pm. Anyone else interested in volunteering, are welcome between 10am to 7pm. Please contact Sinead Maloney at (212) 237-3846 or Sinead.Maloney@cancer.org for any questions or to sign up. Thank you for making a difference in the fight against cancer!
