Flowers against Cancer

The Butler Health System Foundation is trying to grow more hope for cancer patients by selling daffodils, a flower representing hope, to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

Toni Grupp, chairwoman of the local Daffodil Days campaign for the American Cancer Society, said the program not only has raised money to support cancer programs and patients, but also raised people’s spirits in the process.

“Daffodils are the flower of hope, so it brings hope to all of us,” she said. “You put them in water, and they just bloom right in front of your eyes. People like to make a donation when they receive something tangible back.”
