Thank you for supporting Daffodil Day

Dear Editor,

I write to thank locals for their outstanding support of Daffodil Day (August 24).

Last week, nearly 700,000 daffodils were sold in support of Queenslanders affected by cancer.

All funds raised from the initiative will be reinvested in cancer research looking into better treatment options and early detection methods.

It’s our mission to ensure that the 27,000 Queenslanders diagnosed with cancer each year have the best prospects of successfully treating and surviving their diagnosis.

Since Daffodil Day started 32 years ago survival rates have drastically improved because of advances in cancer prevention, screening and treatment – an achievement all of us can be proud of.

Despite this, there is still a long way to go and we will continue investing in research until we reach a cancer free future.

Thank you for helping us spread hope on Daffodil Day – every daffodil sold, or donation made, will save lives.

If you didn’t have an opportunity to buy a bunch of daffodils, you can still donate online and dedicate a virtual daffodil to a loved one.

Visit to support the cause.

Ms Chris McMillan
CEO, Cancer Council Queensland
