Daffodil Day

Daffodil Day

by 27/08/2020

The daffodil is recognised internationally as the symbol of hope for all people affected by cancer. Cancer Council chose it as our emblem as the bright yellow colouring heralds the return of spring, representing new life and growth.

1 in 2 Australians will be affected by cancer in their lives. Cancer Council is the only charity that works across every area of every cancer, from research to prevention and support. Every minute, every hour, every day, we’re here for all people, affected by all cancers.

The Daffodil Day Appeal is Cancer Council’s most iconic and much-loved fundraising campaign. It is a day for Australians to come together and donate to help stop cancer.

This year, the Daffodil Day Appeal aims to raise more than $2 million for life-saving cancer research. Be sure to get involved!
