Daffodil Friday August 25th

Cancer Society needs help this Daffodil Day The Cancer Society’s annual flagship event Daffodil Day – one of the most iconic fundraising and cancer awareness events in New Zealand – falls this year on Friday, 25 August. Over the years, the Cancer Society has seen progress both in reducing the incidence and impact of cancer, however, more people are still being diagnosed in New Zealand each year, and greater support is needed right across the country. “There are over 22,000 Kiwis getting diagnosed with cancer each year, and it’s slowly increasing” says Daniel Glover, the Cancer Society of New Zealand Communications and Marketing Manager. But there is hope – treatments are getting better, and research is providing results each year. More people are surviving cancer than ever before and this is a direct result of the community’s support to raise funds that are used for research. “When people ask if the money they are donating actually makes a difference, we can say absolutely. But we still have a long way to go, so the research is vitally important. “From research funded by Daffodil Day donations, we are seeing results in new breakthrough immunotherapy drugs and

treatments, which are now available both in New Zealand and around the World,” commented Glover. “Research is crucially important, but we also provide a range of support services locally right across the country, including: information, health promotion and education programmes to reduce cancer risk, awareness campaigns and programmes” said Glover. Now in its 27th year, Daffodil Day raises awareness of cancer and is the biggest generator of funds for the Cancer Society. The daffodil is one of the first flowers of the spring season and with its bright yellow bloom represents hope for the one in three New Zealanders affected by cancer each year. ANZ has been the principal sponsor of Daffodil Day since the event began. Donations received will go towards vital research into better ways to detect, treat and reduce all types of cancers. They will also fund a range of support services, information booklets and health promotion activities. People wanting to support the Cancer Society can do so by donating directly with a street collector, at any ANZ branch, or online at daffodilday.org.nz.

It's quick and easy to donate from your cell phone - simply text "hope" to 336 to make an instant $3 donation (usual charges apply).
