The sale of a flower for a great cause: the daffodil, symbol of life and hope, was the first activity of the Canadian Cancer Society's Daffodil Month.
In the southwest region, nearly 88,000 daffodils were sold from March 29 to April 2 by hundreds of volunteers, such as Mr. Claude Bergevin of Huntingdon, Mrs. Suzanne Lussier of Ormstown and Mrs. Céline Rochefort and Mrs. Julie Paquette of St-Chrysostome and all of their teams, all motivated to save more lives, in some 85 locations throughout the region.
With the support of 300,000 annual donors and 30,000 volunteers, the Canadian Cancer Society is the Quebec cancer charity with the potential to save the most lives. Each year, some 135,000 Quebecers turn to it. So, the CCS does everything it can to increase the overall cancer survival
The money raised by the CCS helps:
prevent more cancers and demand laws that protect public health
fund more research projects
support more people living with cancer
