Kia kaha Daffodil Ladies

LETTER

I was so disappointed to read in The Herald of May 2 that a bunch of lovely ladies who are cancer survivors or battling cancer (The Daffodil Ladies) had to find new rooms for their support meetings.

It is absolutely disgraceful that the East Coast Cancer Society allowed this to happen. I thought a cancer society was the best place to have their support meetings, but no. Very sad that they were told there was no room at the inn.

So, thank you to the organisations that offered a place for these ladies to go to. It is fantastic that they have a place now at the Senior Citizens Hall — well done for opening your doors to these wonderful ladies who have one thing in common, battling that dreaded cancer. Kia kaha to each one off you. Arohanui
