Letter: Thanks to Langley residents for successful daffodil campaign

Editor: Another incredibly successful Daffodil Month is behind us and we are able to continue making a meaningful impact in the fight against cancer because of communities like Langley.

Thank you to the dozens of volunteers who distributed fresh-cut daffodils and daffodil pins, arranged for pin donation boxes to be present in businesses around town and went canvassing door-to-door, asking their neighbours to donate.

Thank you to the countless community members who generously gave money, proudly and compassionately wore their daffodil pins and helped spread the word of Daffodil Month to their friends and family.

Your community ensured that during the month of April, cancer patients knew they were not alone.

Thank you to the businesses who encouraged their employees to get involved, displayed our daffodil pin donation boxes or donated their own dollars to help us.

Because of all of you, we are able to help support local cancer patients and their families living with more than 200 different types of cancer.

So, thank you. You have made a real, lasting difference.

It’s not too late to show your support for Daffodil Month and the Canadian Cancer Society. Please visit cancer.ca/daffodil.
