Send flowers to battle childhood cancer

by webdev

September 26, 2011

When President Barack Obama proclaimed September to be National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, he encouraged all of America to reaffirm their commitment to fighting the disease - the leading cause of death for American children under the age of 15.

If you know someone whose child has cancer, you may better understand not only the struggle the child has to go through, but also the stress that befalls the entire family. Sending sympathy flowers to the family may help them get through the difficult time, but sending bright yellow bouquets of sunflowers and daisies may help to cheer up the child.

Even if you don't know anyone battling cancer, you can still support a cause to make the disease less widespread. If you send flowers online from Teleflora's Sunny Day Collection, the 10 percent of the proceeds go to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, which funds cancer research. The cause behind these bouquets will make you feel just as good as the blooms themselves - bright yellow sunflowers, roses and daisies in cheery yellow vases will bring a smile to anyone who receives them.
