Cancer canvassers

April is Daffodil Month, the Canadian Cancer Society’s signature fundraising campaign

April is Daffodil Month, the Canadian Cancer Society’s signature fundraising campaign, and that means very soon our canvassers will be going door to door in Parksville and Qualicum Beach asking for donations.

Our volunteers will be easy to recognize — just look for the bright, yellow daffodil pin on their lapels. They will also be wearing Canadian Cancer Society lanyards to identify themselves.

Donations to the society fund life-saving research, prevention initiatives and much needed support programs for people living with cancer right now in Parksville Qualicum Beach and beyond.

When our volunteers with their daffodil pins arrive on your doorstep, we hope people will be inspired to join the fight against cancer and give generously.

We also encourage everyone to purchase a daffodil pin for themselves and their loved ones and wear it proudly during the month of April. The pin is a powerful symbol of hope that lets people in our community who are affected by cancer or who have lost someone to the disease know that they are not alone.

People can learn more about our April door to door canvass and the Daffodil Campaign by visiting cancer.ca/daffodil.
