Canadian Cancer Society volunteers will be encouraging fans to wear daffodil pins during the month of April. The Canadian Cancer Society’s goal is to have every Canadian wearing a daffodil pin throughout April, so we may show those that are on a cancer journey that they are not alone. The funds raised during the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil campaign will go directly to the organization’s support programs and services including their four cancer lodges located in British Columbia, the Cancer Information Service, their many wig and prosthesis banks, as well as Camp Goodtimes. Pins are available only in the month of April. Join the fight – buy your daffodil today. For more information, visit cancer.ca.
