LOCAL women Denise Burns, Ngaire Glover and Jan Simpson are running a stall for Daffodil Day at Woolworths New Norfolk today (Thursday) from 10am.
Cancer Council Tasmania chief executive Penny Egan said that while many lives had been put on hold due to COVID-19, cancer doesn’t rest and the Cancer Council’s vital work in cancer
research must continue.
“Despite advances made in research and improving survival rates for many cancers, we know that every 4 minutes another Australian is diagnosed with cancer,” Mrs Egan said. We also know that less funding will be available for research due to the current climate, so it’s more important than ever to ensure we support the work of our researchers.”
“We rely on the generosity of community donations to help us fund this work. Money raised this year will provide more than hope to people affected by cancer, it will fund vital cancer research that is saving lives every day.”
You can support the Daffodil Day Appeal by donating in person at the stall at Woolworths New Norfolk, online at daffodilday.com.au or call 1300 65 65 85.
