Since the 1950s, bright yellow daffodils have arrived in communities across Canada to mark the beginning of the Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Campaign.
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. The daffodil is a symbol of strength, courage and life. During our annual Daffodil Campaign, Canadians rally around this symbol and take action to help fund game-changing research and support services – like our coast-to-coast, cancer information helpline – so no one has to face cancer alone.
Funds raised through the sale of daffodil pins and flowers will help change lives for the better. Show your support because together, we can prove that life is bigger than cancer.
Daffodils can be purchased within the Greater Edmonton area, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Calgary (within a 50 kms radius) at www.cancer.ca/DaffodilsAB
Reducing the burden of cancer
Canadians can help CCS fund the best research and support people living with cancer by donating and volunteering.
