Cancer Society branch open house in Qualicum Beach

April is Cancer Month in Oceanside and local office plans to mark the occasion

April is the month to join the fight against cancer and the Qualicum Beach Canadian Cancer Society branch office is inviting the public to an open house today.

Many volunteers have been out in the community selling daffodil pins over the past couple of weeks.  Money raised from the sale of the pins is used for prevention education, research and support.

To this day bright yellow daffodils continue to symbolize strength and courage in the fight against cancer.

The Qualicum Beach office has a large breast cancer support group, prostate cancer support group, an extensive library with incredible resources which are free to the public and many other services run by dedicated volunteers.

You can meet some of the local volunteers today (April 24) during an open house from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The local branch is celebrating 10 years in their office at 172 2nd Ave. in Qualicum Beach.

 

Parksville Mayor Chris Burger will be dropping by at 11:30 for some cake and coffee and the public is encouraged to come out as well.
