Gems of Hope Inc. offers gifts of jewelry mounted on inspirational cards to cancer patients. The patients are invited, along with family and friends, to attend workshops to create these works of art for others.
Gems of Hope held the first annual Hope Blooms (formerly known as the American Cancer Society’s Daffodil Days) campaign in 2014.
Hope Blooms provides Cedar Rapids and our surrounding communities the opportunity to purchase daffodils for a hint of spring for themselves, their friends, family and coworkers, as well as area cancer patients.
Place your order of a daffodil bouquet or Lion stuffed animal between January 5th-February 6th. They will be delivered to your requested person or as an anonymous gift to area cancer patients in the Cedar Rapids hospitals and oncology clinics on Wednesday, March 11th, 2015. The stuffed animals will be delivered to the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics for the children’s cancer floor.
