Moore Research Services, Inc. has been a sponsor of the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days program from 2009-2013. It is our hope that we can give hope to people facing cancer and save lives by supporting the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days program. The Daffodil Days program is an opportunity to fight back against cancer by raising funds, and creating an awareness to help beat the disease. While the Daffodil Days program involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers - it is everyone's opportunity to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone's life. Our CEO, Colleen Moore Mezler, has served on the committee since 2009, serving two years as the committee chair. Lindsay Moore has also served on the committee as the volunteer recruitment chair.
