Every three minutes another Canadian is faced with fighting cancer. This April, as part of our annual Daffodil Month, the Canadian Cancer Society is asking you to join the fight against cancer by giving generously when you see one of our volunteers in your community selling daffodils or canvassing at your door. Donations collected in April will be used to support people living with cancer, fund research to outsmart cancer and prevent cancer before it starts.

Aside from donating online you can also pick up a daffodil pin at a location near you that can be found on this map. Volunteers are also needed to man these posts.

Social Media
Connect with the Canadian Cancer Society on Twitter or Facebook. You can also add a daffodil Twibbon to your Twitter or Facebook avatar.

Daffodil Day
April 27th is Daffodil Day and the Canadian Cancer Society is encouraging Vancouverites to wear a daffodil pin during the month of April, and in particular on Daffodil Day, to show people affected by cancer they are not alone. There will be an event from 11:30am until 1:30pm at the Vancouver Art Gallery with photobooths, music, and special guests.
