Daffodil Days was initiated in 1988 by Rita Corkery, associate director for community relations, who is a breast cancer survivor. Administered out of Harvard Public Affairs & Communications, Daffodil Days utilizes Harvard resources to sell bouquets of yellow daffodils and related products in the month of February all over the University to benefit cancer patients.
