Cancer Council's Daffodil Day Appeal 2019

Last Updated Sep 14, 2020

With a target to raise more than $4 million for life-saving cancer research, this year's Daffodil Day Appeal seeks to raise awareness and money throughout the month of August that will culminate in a public show of solidarity on 23 August 2019. Volunteers will be collecting donations at sites across the country.

Daffodil Day Appeal is an initiave by the Cancer Council and has become the most iconic and much-loved fundraising campaign for cancer causes. It has become day for Australians to give hope to those affected by all cancers by donating to support a cancer free future.

Why daffodil?

The daffodil is has been recognised internationally as the symbol of hope for all people affected by cancer. That is why the Cancer Council have chosen it as the emblem as it heralds the return of spring, pushing its way through the frozen earth after a long winter, representing new life, vitality and growth. To the council and those affected by cancer, the daffodil represents hope for a cancer free future.

Cancer in Australia

Stats have shown that one in two Australians have been diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, with mortality rate at around 69%. Cancer is the leading cause of deaths in Australia, with almost 50,000 deaths estimated for 2019. The top three types of cancer that affect most Australians are lung cancer, colon cancer and breast cancer.

Because of these numbers, events like Daffodil Day Appeal has become very important. So everyone is encouraged to volunteer, donate or at least be educated about everything concerning cancer and people affected by the disease.

Wellness inspiration of the week

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills… There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind… So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself. — MARCUS AURELIUS
