Daffodil Day

Support cancer research this Daffodil Day.

Cancer Council's Daffodil Day will be held on Friday 24 August 2018.

It's a special day to raise funds for life-saving cancer research and turn Australia a vibrant shade of yellow; it's a chance to improve cancer awareness and unite to create a cancer free future.

By 2040, two million Australians are expected to be living with or beyond a cancer diagnosis - that's an increase of 72% in the next 22 years.

There are many ways to get involved and help support the more than 350 Australians diagnosed with cancer every day and create hope.


Spare just four hours of your time to volunteer at one of 250 Daffodil Day sites across Victoria.

Where the money goes

1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Every dollar makes a real difference helping to fund Cancer Council's life-saving cancer research, working to prevent cancer, create hope and save lives.


allows us to extract and store the DNA we use to help discover the causes of cancer so we can prevent more Victorians from having the disease.


helps pay for the collection of a tumour sample for research so we can personalise treatments to save more lives.


helps fund a Victorian researcher who is passionate about finding the next breakthrough in treatments for low-survival cancers.


Every year, thousands of Australians come together to raise money and awareness for cancer research.
