Daffodil Day!

It wasn't until I was out at lunch time today, that I noticed it was Daffodil Day! On my way out of the store, I stopped to purchase my small bundle of daffodils. I chatted with the three ladies for a few minutes. I introduced the fact that I am a 11 1/2 year survivor and each one, in turn, told me their "survivor" age.

One lady, more than thirteen years, another 10 years and the last one, just two years. The 13 year survivor explained that her husband was now battling the disease and was terminal.

Today, if you see the daffodil display, think about your own survivor story or someone close to you, their story. Keep the hope alive and we can see that some people are able to survive this disease because of all the support which enables research through funding.


  1. We had our daffodils a couple of weeks ago. I bought 2 bundles and they were so bright and cheery for a week. Mom was a 25 year volunteer for the Cancer Society until she got sick. She also had malignant breast tumor several years ago.

  2. Truer words were never spoken, Julie...we all need to support this worthy cause. I have had very dear friends and relatives pass away with this dreaded disease...

  3. Agreed Julie. We have all been touched by family and friends' stories. We support all the efforts to find a cure so that all who are affected by cancer can be SURVIVORS.
