Thanks for supporting Daffodil Month

Local Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Month organizers Kim Lindseth & Anna Anderson say thanks to the West Boundary.

On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, we would like to thank Westbridge, Rock Creek, Midway and Greenwood for supporting Daffodil Month during April.

Every three minutes, another Canadian is faced with a cancer battle. It’s likely the disease has affected almost everyone in our communities, be it a personal diagnosis or that of a loved one. By wearing the daffodil pin in April, Westbridge, Rock Creek, Midway and Greenwood residents collectively stood together to show people living with cancer they are not alone in the fight.

With the support of our volunteers, donors and community partners, the Canadian Cancer Society is leading the charge in the fight against all cancers—of which there are more than 200 different types. Each and every day, we are working hard to accomplish our mission of eradicating cancer and enhancing the quality of life of those living with the disease.

We do this by funding the most promising cancer research, offering vital support to those living with cancer, and trying to prevent cancer in the first place by educating Canadians about early detection and advocating for healthy public policies.

Thanks to the generosity of donors and our more than 7,500 daffodil volunteers, we anticipate the Daffodil Month initiative will raise $5 million in B.C. this year alone, which will have a substantial and important impact in our fight for life.

The Canadian Cancer Society’s continued impact in the fight for life would not be possible without the generosity of our volunteers, donors and community partners in Westbridge, Rock Creek, Midway and Greenwood.

We are very grateful for your support and wish to thank you for joining us in the fight for life. Together, we can change cancer forever.

Kim Lindseth,

Anna Anderson,

Canadian Cancer Society,
