Daffodil Day

Well today is Daffodil day, and I'm sure you all know what that is by now, but incase you don't, go to a coles supermarket and buy a bunch of Daffodil flowers and raise some money for cancer research (Comeone guys, its only about 3 bucks).

I must admit I never used to be a big supporter of all these charities out of a fact of laziness, but after my own cousin died two years ago at the age of 21, its opened my eyes alot.

Everyone knows someone who has had to deal with cancer directly or indirectly, so please show your support and try to rid the world of this horrible disease.


PS, Love ya Tessa, will never forget you :).

Re: Daffodil Day

Dad has cancer and I know atleast 10 other people that have had or still do have it. One of the best causes around. Tell me, does a 2 year old child deserve cancer? Of course not, but then again neither does anyone else. Donate and help find a cure!

Re: Daffodil Day

You're having daffodil day a week earlier than us, however I think it's important to give a little. My older (aussie) sister died of brain cancer.

Re: Daffodil Day

I think most people have been affected in one way or another by cancer. I think daffodil day is a great cause and should be supported.

Re: Daffodil Day

Yep I go to the Daffodial Ball up here every year. It is a great night and a great cause.

They have donated gifts that are auctioned off on the night and all money goes to cancer research. I did my part Big time this year and bought a 3 night holiday on Linderman Island (Club Med) for $1000...........Can't wait.

Re: Daffodil Day

I lost my father to Lung Cancer 3 years ago. I happily gave up my job to nurse him until he took his last breath. He was 54. It's amazing how strong you can be when faced with a situation like that! Every daffodil day since, my sister, my mum and I buy 18 daffodil pins each. We meet up at the Cemetary and spread them all over his grave. It's just a thing that we do. And the money spent goes to a good cause.

I've got all the time in the world for ANYONE that's dealing with Cancer in their family! Just PM me...

One more repo and I'll be debt free!
