Canadian Cancer Society, Daffodil Month Captain Looking for 3-4 volunteers per weekend

For 80 years, the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) has been Canada’s cancer voice and leading authority on the disease. We’re the only organization that fights all types of cancer, supports and advocates for patients and their families, and champions those who care about a future where no Canadian fears cancer.

 

Daffodil Month, held every April, is our national fundraising campaign. Monies raised allow us to continue our critical work in the fight against cancer.

 

The daffodil is resilient. It survives our harsh winters and is the first flower to bloom in the spring, a time of renewal and hope. For those living with cancer, the daffodil is a symbol of strength, courage and life. Together, Canadians rally around this symbol every year in support of world-class research and support services.

 

When the ones you love are diagnosed with or die from cancer, friends and family often want to do something to help or honour them. Fundraising enables change and we can all have a part in advancing the cancer cause through our generosity. This April, at the Canadian Cancer Society, we want you to know Daffodil Month is a special opportunity to make a difference.
