Symbol Party

This flower of North America, Europe, North Africa and India grows in the most unlikely places and in the harshest of conditions. Since 1957 it has been the worldwide symbol for Cancer Research Fund Raising efforts. Symbolizing rebirth and renewal we carve this blossom on the Hope Tree as a reminder to hold out until the Spring. They are ever vigilant in returning each spring, and with their return we are reminded that their beauty is capable of following on the shirttails of even the harshest winters.

Who among us catches this flash of golden yellow tucked away in some snow covered patch of green and does not feel hope: hope for the end of winter, hope for a better day, hope that life goes on despite the storm’s temporary embrace. We also use it here as a reminder that your will to live is “ever vigilante.” Daffodil sap contains sharp crystals that prevent animals from eating the flower. You too possess the sharpness of spirit needed to fend off this cancer.
