Daffodil Day of Hope

Hi Friends,

I am supporting the beautiful Cath Fry this year in reaching her fundraiser target.  Cath shares her journey below as to how & why "Daffodil Day of Hope" is close to her heart.  

Thanks for your support, Fiona x

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. 

Caths Story

Eight 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 six 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.
