For more than 20 years, Doris Decyk, human resources assistant, has lead the charge on Eastern's Daffodil Days, selling bouquets of daffodils, bears and bunches of daffodils, potted daffodil bulbs and bear hugs of hope, all designed to raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS). This year, Doris, raised $1,375. Last year was her best, when she raised $1,710. The daffodil is the first flower of spring, and is the perennial ACS symbol of hope for cancer patients throughout the community. Daffodil contributions to the ACS's fight against cancer are making a difference. Daffodil Days help fund groundbreaking cancer research, provide up-to-date cancer information and education, advocate for public policies that benefit the community, and provide services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
