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 cancer patients and their families, when they need it most.
"Having someone to talk to and share with is a huge weight off your shoulders, there is always someone there to listen - you will never be fully alone. It’s so good to know those free resources are available when you need them.” – Counselling service user.
