American Cancer Society National Daffodil Days

A Symbol of Hope and Resilience

Daffodil Days raises awareness for cancer using this cheerful symbol. Cancer kills more than 600,000 Americans each year and affects countless lives. Since the 1950s, the daffodil has served as a symbol of hope and resilience in the face of cancer. The bright flower represents the hard work done by researchers and doctors to find a cure and improve treatment for cancer of all types. Cancer research organizations worldwide have used the daffodil as an emblem of hope and resilience in the face of disease. Join the American Cancer Society in saving lives, celebrating lives, and leading the ongoing fight for a world without cancer.
