American Cancer Society volunteers prepare for fundraiser

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Flowers can brighten someone's day. But Monday, daffodils could help in the fight against cancer.

Volunteers with the American Cancer Society got together Saturday morning to prepare for the annual "Daffodil Days" fundraiser. People unloaded trucks and helped arrange bundles for Monday's deliveries. Organizer Brenda Hetler, who is a thirty-five year cancer survivor, says it's great to be able to give back to a cause that has impacted her life.

"I would like to raise enough money so that it could go towards the education and whatever the organization needs. I want to help someone else to survive like I did," says Hetler.

Hetler says they have put together 15- hundred pre-orders so far and hopes to have a record year this year.

If you would like to purchase a bundle of daffodils just call Brenda Hetler at (870) 935-0913. You can also reach her at (870) 273-4480.
