How does the money I raise support cancer patients?
Cancer takes from us every day. It takes big days, little days, and everything in-between. It replaces them with treatment days and recovery days. But this Daffodil Day we have the power to take these days back from cancer, to give hope and raise vital funds so that one day cancer can take no more.
Now more than ever, cancer patients need our support. Funds raised during Daffodil Day are used to help the estimated 44,000 people who receive a cancer diagnosis in Ireland each year. Your generous donations fund ground-breaking cancer research and provide free support services and care to people affected by cancer, throughout Ireland. All because of one day.
Please take part today to ensure we can continue to be there for every cancer patient that needs us during this worrying time.
Your support has a real impact! “I had great support from my own circle, but it got to a stage where I just wanted to speak to a trained person. It’s a scary, lonely journey especially given all that’s happening in the world recently, but to know that you have these services beside you and to call upon if you need them is amazing.” – Remote Counselling service user.
