Snow won’t stop the Daf­fodils

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

April

is Daf­fodil Month and the Cana­dian Cancer So­ci­ety, through their thou­sands of vol­un­teers, will be sell­ing daf­fodils be­tween April 3rd and the 6th. In the Estrie, more than 110,000 daf­fodils will be sold by more than 500 vol­un­teers in 140 dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions.

The money col­lected dur­ing Daf­fodil Month saves lives: to­day, 63% of people who have re­ceived a cancer di­ag­no­sis are still alive five years later. For cer­tain can­cers, sur­vival is even more spec­tac­u­lar, no­tably for in­fan­tile cancer (82%), breast cancer (88%), prostate cancer (96%) and testicular cancer (97%). In the 1940’s, the sur­vival rate of cancer was 25%.
