Every three minutes, another Canadian will be told, “You have cancer.”

Two in five Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetimes. But by wearing the daffodil this April, Canadians can show them they are not alone in their fight.

Daffodil pins will be available for a donation at several retail locations in Burns Lake throughout April.

“Please show your support and encouragement to those living with cancer,” says Rhoda Anderson of the Canadian Cancer Society. “Wear the daffodil this April because we truly are all in this together.”

Fresh daffodil flowers will be arriving the first week of April. If you would like to pre-order please call the office at (250) 692-7203 and leave a message or e-mail burnslake@bc.cancer.ca.

There will also be a fundraiser to celebrate Canadian Cancer Society daffodil month April 26 at Decker Lake Hall. Live music by Flaming Pie. Dinner 6 p.m.
