As the official symbol of the Canadian Cancer Society, daffodils have come to represent hope, strength, and courage in the fight against cancer. The bright yellow flowers are a sign of solidarity – to let those affected by cancer know that they are not alone.

On Daffodil Day (April 27th), Canadians are encouraged to remember those who have lost their lives due to cancer and to show their support for those living with cancer by contributing to the cause. Throughout the month of April, donations will be collected through the sale of daffodil pins. The funds will help the Canadian Cancer Society in their cancer research, prevention, and advocacy initiatives.

Other ways to support the Daffodil campaign include doing something special for those with cancer (such as telling a loved one that you are thinking of them and presenting them with fresh daffodil flowers to lift up their spirits), informing the public about the Society’s information and support programs, and contacting your local and provincial politicians to recruit them in the campaign.

View the 30 day calendar to see how daffodils will make an impact on Canadians with cancer. Visit fightback.ca and find out how you can give your time as a volunteer during Daffodil month.
