On Friday, March 22, the Irish Cancer Society is calling on Irish the world over to gather in support of their annual Daffodil Day.

The annual collection day is now in its 32nd year and while it has become a huge nationwide event where everyone in Ireland comes together in support, this year, the Irish diaspora and those all over the world with a connection to Ireland are being called on to join in and support friends and family affected by cancer back home.  

Anybody, in any country, can take part and for each small donation made here, you’ll receive a daffodil pin to wear to show your support.

“Every 3 minutes someone in Ireland is diagnosed with cancer. Someone dies every hour. By 2020 one in two of us will receive a diagnosis in our lifetime,” explains the Irish Cancer Society.

“This MUST change. With YOUR help this Daffodil Day on Fri 22nd March, you will bring hope and courage to people and families affected by cancer back home.

“No matter where you are in the world, please support people of Ireland with a gift today. You’ll receive a daffodil pin to wear as a symbol of strength. Post a selfie to reach people at home who will feel your love and support #DaffodilDay."

You can support Daffodil Day or make a donation here: www.cancer.ie/daffodildonation.

If you have family or friends in Ireland who are affected by cancer, they can call our Freephone Cancer Nurseline on 1800 200 700 for free advice and support from a qualified cancer nurse.
