If I may could I just remind you that Friday 28.8.15 is Daffodil Day. Could I also be as bold as to ask could you spare as little as $6. If you purchase a bunch of glorious daffodils from Coles 100% of the money goes to the Cancer Foundation and you have a lovely bunch of flowers to brighten up your home and remind you you have given to helping a person with cancer or contributed to research for cancer. My local Coles have had bunches for a while now and I added a beautiful bunch to my purchase the other day.
If you are out and about on Friday and notice The wonderful Cancer Council Volunteers selling Cancer merchandise please think about purchasing something as I am sure they would be delighted and so will be your heart.
Many Thanks for your time and hopefully your support.
A CHARITY FOR CANCER
CONTROLCancer Council brings together Australia’s leading state and territory cancer organisations. Our vision is to minimise the threat of cancer through successful prevention, best treatment, support and world-class cancer research. To realise our vision Cancer Council undertakes a broad range of activities:
Research – We are the leading independent funders of cancer research in Australia, granting more than $50million a year in research grants.
Patient support – Cancer Councils coordinate a network of cancer support groups, services and programs to help improve the quality of life of cancer patients, people living with cancer, their families and carers.
Information – We provide evidence-based, up-to-date information about all aspects of cancer to:
Doctors and other health professionals – to help improve prevention, detection and treatment of cancer
Cancer patients and the general community – more than 100,000 people contact Cancer Council for information and support each year, chiefly through Cancer Council 13 11 20
Prevention – Our early detection and prevention programs aim to help people quit smoking, protect themselves from the sun, eat healthier foods and engage in physical activity to reduce the risk of cancer.
Treatment – Our Australia-wide network of health professionals develop guidelines to provide the best evidence based treatment and care for cancer patients.
Advocacy – Cancer Council advises government on the needs of our stakeholders and provides an independent voice for improved cancer control policy based on the evidence.
Fresh bunches and potted daffodils are in store now! 100% of the profit from the sale of fresh daffodils sold will go to Cancer Council support services in your state or territory.
