    Daffodil Month

    Money raised during Daffodil Month helps cancer patients and their families in Windsor-Essex. Donations fund life-saving cancer research, support services and other important work that means fewer Canadians will be affected by the disease, and can enhance the lives of people living with cancer. 

    Residential Canvass 
    April 1 - 30
    Give generously to our volunteers going door-to-door throughout April.

    Daffodil Days
    March 31 - April 30
    Get your daffodil pin at one of our various locations throughout Windsor-Essex on several weekends in April. 

    We need volunteers! If you are interested in helping out during Daffodil Month, you can register online or email theresa.blondin@ontario.cancer.ca
