Come together during Daffodil Campaign
April is Daffodil month, when Canadians rally together to support and remember those affected by cancer. But this year COVID-19 has changed our world in unprecedented ways and the beloved Daffodil Campaign is no exception.
For the first time ever, to ensure the safety of those we serve, we are suspending all face-to-face fundraising activities. This will almost certainly result in a significant drop in donations, directly impacting Canadians with cancer.
People with cancer are among the most vulnerable because of their compromised immune systems. Their care and well-being is our highest priority.
Your donation to the Canadian Cancer Society COVID-19 Emergency fund during Daffodil month will help support our helpline and online support programs during this time and all year round.
Create a digital daffodil
The Daffodil is a symbol of hope and renewal for Canadians affected by cancer. This sunny symbol is more relevant than ever at this time when we all need to join together and look ahead to brighter days.
Donate today and honour someone you love by dedicating a digital daffodil – a virtual badge you can print or share online. Become a Daffodil Champion and use your digital daffodil to spread positivity and share hope – because we’re all in this together.
