The Daffodil Day Appeal is Cancer Council’s most iconic and much-loved fundraising campaign. 

It’s a chance for Australians to come together and give; their ability to create change in the lives of people impacted by cancer, by funding cancer research. 

In 2021, the Daffodil Day Appeal raised almost $1.5 million for life-saving cancer research, but looked a little different. Despite a global pandemic, Australians still dug deep and donated online to show their commitment to a cancer free future. 

This year, we’re asking for your essential support once more.

Sadly, with nearly 150,000 Australians diagnosed with cancer every year, most people have been touched by this heartbreaking disease. That’s why we’re encouraging you to give hope, by registering to fundraise for The Daffodil Day Appeal, or by donating to the cause.

Daffodil Day falls on Thursday 25 August in 2022, but you can get involved any time throughout the month.
