Bonnie's Story

"My mother died from cancer when I was just 19 years old and it was a life changing event. In a matter of months the person closest to me was gone. I was in college and had such a short time to say goodbye. As a grown woman, I carry the memory of my mother daily. This is why cancer research is important to me."

Inspired by the Daffodil Days®, Jonäno owner and artist Bonnie Siefers, a Survivors Circle member of the BCRF, created a beautiful collection with a mission; envisioning "A World without Cancer." You can honor a loved one, brighten the day of someone touched by the disease, and help make the Jonäno Mission possible-all at the same time!
