Every three minutes, another Canadian will hear the words “you have cancer” for the first time, and the Canadian Cancer Society wants them to know that they are not alone.
During Daffodil Month in April, and especially on Daffodil Day (April 27), the Canadian Cancer Society is asking Canadians to join the fight against cancer by making a donation to support its work throughout Canada and to proudly wear a daffodil pin as a symbol of support for people living with cancer.
“We want to create a movement across Canada and see thousands of Canadians wearing the daffodil pin,” said Peter Goodhand, CEO and president, Canadian Cancer Society.
“United by the daffodil, we will show people living with cancer that they don’t have to face cancer alone, and we won’t give up until all forms of the disease are defeated.”
Throughout Daffodil Month, special events and activities will be taking place in communities across Canada to raise vital funds to prevent cancer, fund research, inform and support people living with cancer, and advocate for policies to improve the health of Canadians.
Daffodil Day on April 27 wraps up the campaign by designating a special day where Canadians can take a moment to reflect upon the thousands of people who are on a cancer journey and also to remember those who have died.
