Today is a big day for Daffodil Pace, the home-away-from home for cancer patients who have to be St. John’s for treatment.
Expenses are up and revenue is down at the facility, which mainly requires $700,000 a year to operate. Because of COVID-19 it will cost $775,000 this year.
Al Pelley, the Executive Director of Daffodil Place says they had to drop all fundraising efforts but are going ahead with today’s radiothon on VOCM. However the initiative will be a little different this year because of COVID-19.
Greg Smith will be broadcasting throughout the day about Daffodil Place, which provides cancer patients with a comfortable place to stay three square meals a day and transportation to and from appointments.
While the fundraising stopped, cancer did not. All in-person events such as the daffodil flower sale, relay for life, and youth relay were suspended.
The 24 hour One Night Stand against Cancer is on.
