Cancer Council Queensland is urging Bundaberg Region residents to support life-saving cancer research today as part of Daffodil Day.
With 1861 new cases of cancer diagnosed in Wide Bay Burnett every year, Cancer Council Queensland Senior Community Development Specialist Rebecca Field said now was the time to act.
“The daffodil is the international symbol of hope for everyone impacted by cancer, which is why this year we’re calling on Queenslanders to give hope to those impacted by cancer by supporting Daffodil Day this Thursday,” she said.
“Every person who donates or buys daffodils will help us to invest in life-saving cancer research programs, giving hope for better treatments and early detection, and ultimately, giving hope for a cancer free future.”
2022 marks thirty-six years of Daffodil Day, Cancer Council’s most iconic and much-loved fundraising campaign.
It is a day of hope when Australians show their support for the people they know (or even those they don’t know) who have been impacted by cancer and give hope for a cancer free future.
This year you can support Cancer Council’s Daffodil Day Appeal in the following ways:
- Donate via the Daffodil Day Appeal website and give to cancer research
- Fundraise and make a real difference
- Grab your fresh daffodils from a local Daffodil Day site near you on Daffodil Day,
Thursday 25 August
Daffodils will be available at the Bundaberg CBD Pavilion today and Oceanfest, Burnett Heads on Saturday.
