Daffodil Day means hope for Bundaberg's Samantha

DAFFODIL Day has an important meaning for Bundaberg local Samantha Rechenberg - it's a symbol of her strength and her hope for the future.

In August last year Samantha's world turned upside down - her 18-year-old daughter was diagnosed with advanced thyroid cancer, and within two weeks of that she faced the devastating news that her husband had emphysema.

Following a whirlwind of surgery and treatment, Samantha's daughter Brooke is doing well and her husband's condition is stable - and she's now determined to use her experience to give hope to others touched by the disease.

"I have always supported Daffodil Day, either by making a donation or buying some daffodil, but this year it's a cause especially close to the heart," Ms Rechenberg said.
