A yellow sea of hope

YELLOW daffodils are colouring the streets of Warwick and brightening the lives of cancer patients today.

Among those admiring the yellow flowers will be Warwick cancer survivor Erin Kelly, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.

“My prayers have been answered,” she said.

“The Catholic Church congregation prayed for me (when I was receiving treatment).”

Ms Kelly said she would purchase a daffodil as a symbol of hope for those fighting cancer.

This year’s Daffodil Day will mark the 25th anniversary of supporting those touched by the disease.

Merchandise, as well as fresh flowers themselves, will be sold at a number of places in the region. The Killarney Lions Club will also host a Daffodil Day fundraiser, when members cook up a storm at the Killarney Bowls Club for breakfast.

Cost for the breakfast will be $10 for adults and $5 for children and merchandise will be on sale.
