Friday 23rd August is Daffodil Day, one of the major fundraising events for the Cancer Council.  I am a passionate supporter of the Cancer Council and the work they do, and even sit on their Finance and Audit Committee.  So, here are my 17 Bright ideas for why you should donate to the Cancer Council – Sue ( Information below taken from the Cancer Council website)

Its easy – just buy a daffodil or other merchandise on Daffodil day.  You can also donate online.


They  are the leading independent funders of cancer research in Australia, granting more than $54 million to cancer research, research scholarships and fellowships in 2013.

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.


Their 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.


Each year cancer claims more lives globally than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.



They are pledging to add 10,000 signatures to the World Cancer Declaration. By adding your name, you can help bring the growing cancer crisis to the attention of health policymakers at national, regional and global levels.

Cancer can affect anyone at any stage of life.  Read through some of these cancer stories that people have shared.

An estimated 124,910 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in Australia this year, with that number set to rise to 150,000 by 2020.


Cancer costs more than $3.8 billion in direct health system costs (7.2%).


The survival rate for many common cancers has increased by 30 per cent in the past two decades.


Cancer is a leading cause of death in Australia – more than 43,700 people are estimated to have died from cancer in 2011. Cancer accounted for about 3 in 10 deaths in Australia.


Providing support for cancer patients, people living with cancer, their families and carers is a key activity of Cancer Councils around Australia.

Cancer Council Australia advises government on the needs of our stakeholders and provides an independent voice for improved cancer control policy based on the evidence.

Their affiliations with national and international cancer organisations help further shared objectives.


It will make you feel all warm and tingly.  You will get a boost from helping others.


On August 23rd, more than 10,000 volunteers are expected to staff over 1,200 Daffodil Day sites across Australia.  Don’t make them stand there for nothing!



1 in 2 Australian men and 1 in 3 Australian women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85.
