Daffodil Day : Support and Awareness for Cancer and its Victims


Daffodil Day is one of the many campaigns set up by Cancer Societies to bring awareness for Cancer and its victims. One of the first of them to start organizing these campaigns was the Canadian Cancer Society in 1957, and today marks not only the day they decided upon for it but the global day for its awareness. It was made to encourage others to volunteer or donate to the cause, and now millions of families participate in helping this fight push on. Usually, many companies would sell daffodils in order to raise money for these donations, but many of these events have either been cancelled or no longer take place as large as they could be due to COVID 19. Although we may not be able to show our support in this way during this trying time, we can still show our respects to this meaningful day. I, and I’m sure you do too, aspire for these patients to grasp the hope that daffodils represent. Happy Daffodil Day; may nothing but hope and fulfillment meet you in life. May Cancer become a thing of the past rather than a destroyer of families and their loved ones.

Emotions are funny like that. I don’t think it’s possible to ever truly ‘get over’ a loss once you lose someone. It stays with you for an eternity. It’s alright to cry, it’s healthy as well as normal. Best wishes. :heart:

I wish I could hug you.
