It’s Daffodil Time!
April 23, 2021
Springtime conjures up visions of budding trees, green grass, sunny days, and blooming flowers, which reminds us that April is Daffodil Month. It is a time when the Canadian Cancer Society calls upon Canadians all across Canada to support it in the fight against Cancer, during it’s month-long campaign.
Many of us do not know that an estimated 153,100 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in 2006 and that an estimated 70,400 Canadians died from the disease in 2006. Cancer is also the leading cause of premature death in Canada with lung cancer remaining as the leading cause of cancer death in Canada. Based on current risks, more than one out of four Canadians will develop some form of cancer in their lifetimes, which makes it all the more important for all of us to do our part in increasing awareness against the disease and to support fundraising efforts.
During the month of April, thousands of volunteers from the Canadian Cancer Society have been selling daffodils, knocking on doors, and organizing special events throughout Canadian communities to raise funds to support the work of the Society. The Society’s springtime tradition has been in existence since 1948 and continually grows across our country.
Through its many activities, the Canadian Cancer Society focuses on five key areas to fight cancer including:
I commend the many efforts made by the Canadian Cancer Society and its volunteers, not just during Daffodil month, but each day of the year. I also encourage you and your family to join the Government and the Society in continuing the fight to end this terrible disease, by supporting Daffodil Month in your community.
