Plan now to sow seeds of hope

THE middle of winter is approaching, and so is Daffodil Day.

One of the Cancer Council's most important fundraisers Daffodil day is set down for Friday August 23, and volunteers are being sought to support the national day of hope and an opportunity to contribute to a brighter, cancer-free future.

One in every two Australians is diagnosed with cancer by the age 85. In Northern NSW around 6,000 people from all walks of life will be get the news they have cancer this year.

The daffodil is the international symbol of hope for all touched by cancer.

In 2013, the Cancer Council aims to raise $8.25million nationally to continue to help fund vital cancer research, prevention programs and support services like the Cancer Council Helpline - 13 11 20.

Any one can volunteer for Daffodil Day, either as a Team Leader or as an on site volunteer.
