Canadian Cancer Society marks 75th anniversary

Today marks the 75th anniversary of The Canadian Cancer Society.

Today marks the 75th anniversary of The Canadian Cancer Society.

Founded on March 28, 1938 the CCS has grown into Canada’s leading national cancer-fighting charity with the help of volunteers and donors.

“We are so impressed by the number of British Columbians who wear their daffodil pin during April to show their support for those affected by cancer,” says Barbara Kaminsky, CEO, Canadian Cancer Society, BC & Yukon.

“This movement – which originated here in BC and is thanks to countless dedicated volunteers – recognizes the cancer journey and mobilizes communities to make a really big difference in the fight against cancer.”

Daffodil Day, Saturday, April 27, wraps up the Society’s campaign by designating a special day where we can reflect upon the thousands of Canadians who are on a cancer journey and also to remember those who have not survived.
