To show our support and increase awareness of this research, 1-800-Flowers.com has teamed up with the Cancer Research Institute (CRI) to raise funds for their ongoing efforts to put an end to cancer.

As one of the many events this month that help the public learn more about cancer immunotherapy and help save the lives of more cancer victims, 1-800-Flowers.com team members participated in Wear White for a Cure Day on June 7th and donated their funds to CRI. Check out a few photos of us sharing some smiles and proudly showing our support at the office:
