Daffodil Day of Hope

By Cath Fry Join Me


Together we are creating a cancer free future.

I’m fundraising for Daffodil Day, to support advancements in life-saving cancer research.  

You can get involved by donating and providing hope for a cancer free future, not only for those impacted by cancer, but for all Australians. 

Nine years ago, I faced a breast cancer diagnosis – and am happy to say that I am a survivor. When I was going through my treatment, I always remained hopeful that I would get to a stage where I would be cancer free – that hope was driven by the amazing advancements that have been made in the treatments available for women like me. The support offered by Cancer Council Queensland was amazing and I made a commitment to continue to give back and support the great work that they do.

  Fast forward seven years and one of my close work colleagues – Carolyn Howard, or Howie as we all knew her - received a cancer diagnosis.  Unfortunately, Howie’s story was not to be as positive as mine and on May 6 2021 she lost her fight.  I had to try and generate some positive energy around such an awful loss. I came across some information on Daffodil Day and the message of hope and raising funds resonated strongly with me. 

I have now participated in Daffodil Day since 2021 and raised over $40K last year and aiming for $50K this year, hosting the event as a ‘birthday party’ in honour of Howie.

Thank you for your support.
