Daffodil Day is Cancer Council’s most iconic and much-loved annual campaign that raises life-saving funds for world-class cancer research.
It’s a time of hope; where we come together to show our support for the 145,000 Australians diagnosed with cancer each year. This August 23rd, Salamanca Fresh are showing our support by offering daffodils and Daffodil Day merchandise for sale in all of our stores, with proceeds going to the Cancer Council.
Cancer Council is Australia’s leading cancer charity, working across every aspect of every cancer. Every day, we support families affected by cancer when they need it most, speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues, empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and find new ways to better detect and treat cancer.
With your help, Cancer Council is getting closer to a cancer free future.
Research is vital to saving lives and finding less harsh cancer treatments. Money raised this Daffodil Day Appeal will help fund some of the brightest researchers in the country who are dedicated to discovering the next cancer breakthroughs.
There are several different avenues of research that money raised by Cancer Council funds. These are childhood leukemia, childhood cancer, cervical cancer, immunotherapy and personalised cancer treatments. Thanks to the generous donations of everyday Australians, amazing advancements have been made in cancer prevention, screening and treatment. More people than ever before are surviving a cancer diagnosis. Investment in research helping to increase survival rates from 49% in the 1980’s, to 69% today. Not only do the vital funds you raise help Cancer Council researchers look for ways to reduce the impact of cancer, it helps deliver much-needed support, comfort and above all, hope, to those whose lives have been touched by cancer.
