What Awareness Ribbons Mean & How To Make Your Own

Daffodil Day is a fundraising event organised by the Cancer Council Australia. This annual event raises funds and awareness for cancer research, patient support, and prevention programs.

What is the significance of the daffodil? 

The daffodil holds symbolic meanings that make it particularly fitting as the emblem for this event.

Daffodils bloom in the early spring, before most other flowers. This represents the resilience and ability to endure adversity demonstrated by cancer sufferers and their loved ones.

Furthermore, the bright and cheerful yellow colour of the daffodil represents hope and optimism for advancements in cancer research, treatment, and prevention.
