Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Month


The Canadian Cancer society focuses on cancer prevention, information, support, advocacy and research in hopes that one day, cancer will no long be a problem in our society. Founded by the Saskatchewan medical association in 1929, this group has been here to educate Canadians about the early warning signs of cancer so that is may be easier prevented and treated. The Society funds cancer research today through the Canadian Cancer Society Research Institute.
What is Daffodil Month?
For the Canadian Cancer Society, the daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage, saying that there’s no giving up and that we will be victorious in the fight against cancer. Throughout the month of April, volunteers across Canada will work together to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.
