Clara Maass Medical Center, in partnership with the local Kiwanis Club, recently participated in Daffodil Week. The American Cancer Society selected the daffodil, the first flower of spring, as its symbol of hope for a cancer-free future. The Daffodil Week observance was designed to raise awareness surrounding the fight against cancer.

President of the Kiwanis Club, Joe Wojtecki, Assistant Director of Customer Experience, presented daffodils to Mary Ellen Clyne, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Clara Maass, who accepted them on behalf of patients at Clara Maass Medical Center.
