Cancer research is in a race against time. You can help us win.
Each year, Daffodil Day is a day to remember all those whose lives have been touched by cancer. It’s a day to honour them, and to invest in cancer research so we can ensure a cancer-free tomorrow comes sooner rather than later.
This year we can't collect donations on the street like usual, so your donation online today has never been more critical.
With today being Daffodil Day and with nearly 1 in 2 Australians being diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85, will you please help us?
Your support can save many lives, like Bianca’s.
At 20 years of age, Bianca received her cancer diagnosis.
‘I was told, "Look, Bianca, you have breast cancer. It's spreading really fast and you need to start chemotherapy immediately."’
Having just started studying her dream degree at university and looking set to figure out where she was headed in life, Bianca was devastated by this news.
Thankfully, after extensive chemotherapy and surgery to remove her cancer, Bianca is now cancer free and back studying full time at university, excited by what lies ahead in her life.
Unfortunately, not all people are this lucky. For some of the most aggressive forms of cancer, there are no targeted therapies. We need to change this, and soon.
Every diagnosis starts a race against time for cancer research. The only way to win that race is to continue to fund new discoveries.
Cancer Council funding is an essential part of research in Australia.
If you’ve not yet had the chance to show your support for cancer research this month, why not donate today on Daffodil Day?
