Every day, around 300 Australians are told they have a life-threatening cancer. With your help, we can make a difference and beat this disease. Please support Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day this August (Friday, 24th August), and give hope to the many lives affected by cancer; hope for better treatments, hope for more survivors, and hope for a cancer-free future.
Getting involved is easy. You can register to receive a box of merchandise to sell; donate on the day or you can purchase one of our Daffodil Day gifts at selected outlets during August**, and on Daffodil Day itself. Why not volunteer your time on Daffodil Day by selling merchandise or assist with event administration from June-Sept - just contact your local Cancer Council on 1300 65 65 85.
Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day is a chance for all of us to grow hope for a brighter, cancer-free future. In 2012, Cancer Council aims to raise $9.2 million nationally to continue to help fund vital cancer research, prevention programs and support services (like the Cancer Council Helpline – 13 11 20).
