Friday August 23 marks Daffodil Day - an annual day where buying a little bud can help make a difference to someone's life.
Daffodil Day is Cancer Council's most iconic and much-loved annual campaign that raises life-saving funds for world-class cancer research.
The daffodil is recognised internationally as the symbol of hope for all people affected by cancer. Cancer Council chose it as its 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. It represents hope for a cancer free future.
A total of 145,000 Australians diagnosed with cancer each year.
This year the Daffodil Day Appeal aims to raise more than $4 million for life-saving cancer research.
