What is Daffodil Day?

To Cancer Council WA, and those affected by cancer, the daffodil represents hope for a cancer free future.

For all that cancer takes, give all that you can this Daffodil Day.  Join thousands supporting cancer research.

Cancer Council WA has funded lifesaving breakthroughs in cancer research over the years. This research wouldn’t be possible without the support of our generous donors.

Tragically, with one in two people being affected by cancer in their lifetimes, we will all be touched by this heartbreaking disease. That’s why we’re encouraging you to give hope, by registering to fundraise for Daffodil Day, or by donating to the cause.

Daffodil Day is Cancer Council’s most iconic and much loved fundraising campaign. Daffodil Day falls on Thursday 22 August in 2024, but you can get involved any time throughout the month! 

It’s a chance for Australians to come together and, for all that cancer takes; give. We all have the ability to create change in the lives of people impacted by cancer by funding cancer research.

In 2023, we raised close to $2.5 million, and in 2024, with your support, we hope to raise even more.
