The Power of the Flower lies in its ability not only to inspire hope, but to encourage people to take action.
Cancer Council has funded life-changing breakthroughs in cancer research over the years (you can read about them here). This research wouldn't be possible without the support of thousands of donors. The true Power behind the Flower is in the people who support us.

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 show their Flower Power; their ability to create change in the lives of people impacted by cancer, by funding cancer research.
In 2020, 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 show your Flower Power, by registering to fundraise for The Daffodil Day Appeal, or by donating to the cause. Daffodil Day falls on Friday 27 August in 2021, but you can get involved any time throughout the month.
