Daffodils are the first flowers of spring and are a vibrant yellow colour. Each year, the Canadian Cancer Society runs an annual Daffodil campaign, with 2023 marking its 65th year. Daffodils are the symbol of the Cancer Society’s campaign as they represent strength, renewal, inspiration, and hope. During this campaign, Canadians show outstanding generosity through donating, fundraising for events, and purchasing daffodils.
Classic LifeCare Gifting Daffodils to the Community
At Classic LifeCare, we support the Canadian Cancer Society and people facing cancer. This month, we are gifting a colourful bunch of daffodils to our community partners in BC and Alberta. We are visiting a wide range of healthcare professionals like social workers, occupational therapists, nurses, and more, in a variety of settings such as hospitals, health units, and long-time care facilities. By gifting daffodils, we hope to spread joy and awareness of this worthy campaign.
Britney Didier-Shaw, Classic LifeCare Alberta Leader, speaks about these pleasant visits.
“It’s a cheerful time of the year when we gift our community partners with daffodils. It means spring is around the corner! Each bloom has the potential to put a smile on the faces of our community partners whom we greatly appreciate. It is important to us at Classic LifeCare to give back and by doing this small act, we can support the Cancer Society.”
How Will Your Donations Help Fight Cancer
While progress has been made in cancer research, it remains a leading cause of death worldwide. It is estimated that almost half of Canadians will be diagnosed with some type of cancer and it will claim the lives of one in four people. Therefore, it is important that we come together to fight against cancer. This united support will help protect our family, friends, and neighbours.
The Canadian Cancer Society require donations to help fund research and offer services to those in need. Funding research today helps in the fight against cancer by creating ground-breaking treatments for tomorrow. The Cancer Society offers telephone support, counselling, transport to appointments, and more services. The annual Daffodil campaign reminds people who are battling a cancer diagnosis that they are not alone.
Canadians can play their part by participating in the Daffodil campaign this spring.
