During April, volunteers raise vital funds for the fight against cancer.

Money raised during Daffodil Month helps local patients living with cancer and their families. Donations fund life-saving research, support services and other important work that means fewer Canadians will be touched by the disease.

To donate, go to cancer.ca. Those interested in signing up as a Daffodil Month volunteer can register at cancer.ca/daffodil, or call the Chilliwack office at 604-792-3984.
