Support Daffodil Day in Tipperary to ensure free services for cancer patients

Ireland’s oldest flagship fundraising day, Daffodil Day, which is kindly supported by Dell, takes place this Friday, 27th of March 2015. The Irish Cancer Society is looking for support in Tipperary to ensure the continued provision of free services for cancer patients and their families. Most recent figures show that 1,242 people were diagnosed with cancer in Tipperary in 2012.

Funds raised on Daffodil Day by thousands of volunteers across Ireland go directly to fund the work of the Society across support, prevention, research and advocacy. Night Nursing is one service funded by Daffodil Day. Last year, the Society’s nurses provided 7,800 nights of care to over 1,670 patients with 412 nights of care provided to people in Tipperary. This service is fully funded by the people of Ireland who consistently support the work of the Society.

John McCormack, CEO of the Irish Cancer Society said: “Our thousands of loyal supporters in Tipperary and across the country are ready for Daffodil Day on Friday. This is our biggest fundraising day and with cancer rates increasing every year, we want to ensure that we can continue to meet the demand for our services and cancer research work.

There are a number of ways you can support Daffodil Day from buying a fresh Daffodil or a Daffodil pin on the street to donating via our website, over the phone or by sending a quick text message. With the support of the public this Daffodil Day, we can make a real difference to the lives of cancer patients in Ireland. We won’t give up until cancer does.”
