Will you help give more than hope this Daffodil Day?

Dear Editor,

Friday, August 23 is Daffodil Day, Cancer Council’s iconic fundraising event that raises vital funds to support cancer research.

Research is the key to unlocking the answers to a cancer free future.

Thanks to investment in research, amazing advancements have been made in cancer prevention, screening and treatment—helping to increase survival rates from 49 per cent in the 1980s to 69 per cent today.

However, there is still more work to be done.

When you donate online or visit a donation point near year you this Daffodil Day, you will not only be giving the gift of hope, you will also be funding vital cancer research that has the potential to save countless Queensland lives.

There will be 388 Daffodil Day donation points across Queensland selling fresh daffodils and pins this year.

On behalf of the 27,800 Queenslanders diagnosed with cancer each year, thank you so much. Your support makes an incredible, life-saving difference.

You can find a Daffodil Day donation point near you or donate online throughout all of August to the Daffodil Day Appeal by visiting daffodilday.com.au or by phoning 1300 65 65 85.

Ms Chris McMillan
CEO, Cancer Council Queensland
