Every three minutes another Canadian will hear the words ‘you have cancer’ for the first time and the Canadian Cancer Society wants them to know that they are not alone.
Sears Canada wants people in our community to know that they are not alone. Through the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Pin campaign, Sears was able to contribute $2,564.00 to the local Canadian Cancer Society office.
To the Canadian Cancer Society and all of our community partners, the daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage, a symbol of life. It says we will not give up. It says we will fight back. It says we will beat cancer.
Money raised through Daffodil Month helps local patients and their families living with more than 200 different types of cancer by doing everything we can to prevent cancer from ever happening in the first place. We do this through funding research to outsmart cancer and empowering, informing, supporting and improving the lives of Canadians living with cancer, so that fewer Canadians are touched by the disease.
Sears Canada has directly supported our local programs such as the Wheels of Hope transportation.
