Out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of our staff and volunteers, and with respect to the recommendations from our government and public health officials as they relate to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to suspend Hope In Bloom – Daffodils campaign to benefit the American Cancer Society delivery on April 1st. For those who have made a donation to the American Cancer Society in the hope of receiving or having flowers delivered, we regret the current circumstances that are prohibiting us from delivering the flowers. Please know your donation comes at a critical time when our mission to help those touched by cancer is in great need. Please also note that we have honored our agreement with our suppliers and – even though we will not be receiving the flowers – we have paid for what has been ordered.
The health and safety of our volunteers, staff, and the cancer patients who rely on us, is our top priority. And we know the needs of people facing cancer will continue – and our mission of attacking cancer from every angle is critical. We cannot allow an innovative research grant to go unfunded – it could be the next big breakthrough. We cannot miss a phone call or a chat from a cancer patient with a question – we could be the only ear he or she has to turn to. Your donation to Daffodil Days is helping to ensure we are here today for those facing cancer and will be here tomorrow for anyone who is facing a cancer diagnosis. While we hope you will enable us to use your donation to forward our mission in the community, we will arrange to redirect or refund based on your desire, please contact Rhonda Schnitzler at 563.419.2133 for arrangements.
Where we can, we’re continuing our services to get patients the care and support they need. Because cancer doesn’t stop. So neither do we. Visit cancer.org or call 800.227.2345.
