Daffodil Campaign is about hope

Canadians are encouraged to buy the pin and wear it during April—Daffodil Month—to visibly unite everyone in the fight against cancer.

– Every three minutes, another Canadian will be told, “You have cancer.”

“Wearing the daffodil pin is a simple gesture, but it brings a powerful message of hope to families fighting cancer,” says Kim Lindseth and Arlene Randle, volunteers for the Canadian Cancer Society. “When families facing cancer see the pin we hope they know that they are not alone, and that we’re all in this fight together.”

The daffodil is a bright symbol in the fight against all cancers and brings hope to a difficult experience. The Canadian Cancer Society kicks off Daffodil Month by selling live bunches of the springtime flowers, the daffodil pins, and volunteers will also be out in the community during April canvassing door to door and at their workplaces.

The daffodil pins will be available to purchase by donation at The Spot, McMynn’s Ace Hardware, Pacific Grill, Heritage Credit Union, Christian Valley Services, Rock Creek Petro Can, and Shear Jeanneous, in our local communities throughout April.

Canadians are encouraged to buy the pin and wear it during April—Daffodil Month—to visibly unite everyone in the fight against cancer. “It makes us feel good when we see people wearing the pin,” said one volunteer. “It’s like a badge of honour saying yes, I will join thousands of other Canadians who want to fight back against the devastating impact of cancer on our lives. Cancer changes everything, unless we change cancer together.”

The money raised during Daffodil Month funds life-saving research and vital support services and programs for people living with cancer in B.C. So join the fight—buy fresh-cut daffodils and the daffodil pin, make a donation or become a Canadian Cancer Society volunteer.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers in our communities for their time and all the gracious donations to this cause. If you would like to join us in this cause in any way please call Kim Lindseth at 250-449-2869 or Arlene Randle at 250-449-5029.
