Well done to Tandarook mentor group T1 for being the first group to 'get the cure'. It was a bit of fun but everyone knows someone affected by cancer; it’s a sad fact that half of all Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Thankfully, cancer research has made some extraordinary breakthroughs over the years, and treatments are getting more successful all the time. And it’s through the support of people like you. Daffodil Day is one of the biggest dates in Cancer Council’s calendar. Every year, communities come together to help fund our vital work. By getting involved, your efforts help bring us one step to a cancer-free future.

Where does the fundraising money go?

$5 Helps us give support and information resources to 5 people affected by cancer.

$20 Helps us protect 10 children from potentially harmful sun exposure through our SunSmart school program.

$50 Makes sure there’s a cancer nurse available on 13 11 20 to offer practical information and emotional support to callers.

$230 Provides a financial assistance grant to someone with cancer experiencing severe financial difficulties, to help them travel to their treatments, pay their rent or keep their lights on.
