Today is World Daffodil Day. Daffodil Days are held on a wide range of dates at the world, national, and local level. There is definitely no consensus on a common date. And that's okay, as the goals are the same. Whether you are commemorating World Daffodil Day today, or any other Daffodil Day in any country or locality, the goals are critical and vital. Daffodil Days are held to raise the awareness of cancer and how to avoid it. Other goals of World Daffodil Day, are to raise funds for cancer research, raise public education and awareness, and to help those affected by this deadly and devastating disease.
Why are Daffodils a symbol in the fight against cancer? Daffodils are a worldwide symbol of life.
In some way and at some time, cancer touches everyone in the entire world. Chances are you or someone you love will have cancer at sometime in their lives. We all certainly know many people who have or had cancer. All over the globe, there are cancer societies and groups organized to help in the fight against cancer, and to find a cure. We strongly encourage you to become active in the fight against cancer. At the very least, make a contribution... give what you can.
