Daffodil pins celebrate Daffodil Month

Celebrate spring by supporting the Canadian Cancer Society’s annual daffodil campaign.  

April is the month to fight back against cancer. 

This year, the Canadian Cancer Society is stepping up the campaign by declaring April 27 as Daffodil Day and the society encourages everyone to wear a daffodil pin on that day to let people fighting the disease know they are not alone on their cancer journey.

“Bright yellow daffodils are such a welcome sight after a long and cold snowy winter.  It is not surprising that the Canadian Cancer Society chose the daffodil as its symbol of hope and courage, especially during the month of April,” says Jenni Bazan, campaign co-ordinator. 

Throughout the month of April, daffodil pins will be available for a suggested donation of $1 at participating businesses.   

Funds raised during daffodil month will support the most promising cancer research being done in Canada, and will also provide services to people living with cancer and raise awareness about cancer prevention. 

 

 

“We are looking forward to seeing all those pins blooming out in the community.”
