Snow won’t stop the Daffodils
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%.
