April is Daffodil Month in Canada and wearing a daffodil pin or purchasing a bunch of fresh daffodils is one way to support the Canadian Cancer Society and those who live with cancer.
Dona Bannenberg, a Cancer Society volunteer, will be heading up the Daffodil Month efforts in Kimberley throughout April.
On Friday, March 28 and Saturday, March 29, Dona and fellow Cancer Society volunteer Irma de Visser will kick off Daffodil Month by selling live bunches of the flowers at Kimberley’s Overwaitea from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The daffodil pin will be available to purchase by donation at many local businesses in Kimberley throughout April.
Canadians are encouraged to buy the pin and wear it during April – Daffodil Month – to visibly unite everyone in the fight against cancer.
“Wearing a daffodil pin is a simple gesture, but it brings a powerful message of hope to families fighting cancer,” said Bannenberg. “When families facing cancer see the pin I hope they know that they are not alone, and that we are all in this fight together.”
Money raised through sale of daffodils and pins helps the Canadian Cancer Society fund life-saving cancer research, and offer vital and compassionate support to help people navigate their cancer journeys.
“Two in five Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes,” Bannenberg said. “Let them know they are not alone. Buy fresh-cut daffodils and the daffodil pin this April.”
