I would like to sincerely thank all those in the Murraylands who showed their support this Daffodil Day - Friday, 28 August.
This year, Daffodil Day looked a little different, with fewer sites around SA due to COVID-19, however the cause remained the same.
All the money raised this Daffodil Day through online donations or fresh flower sales will provide more than hope to people affected by cancer, it will fund vital cancer research that is saving lives every day.
Research is the key to achieving a cancer free future.
Today, 69pc of people will survive five years after a cancer diagnosis-in the 1980s, that figure was as low as 48pc.
Here in South Australia, all the money raised through Daffodil Day will go towards funding South Australian researchers through Cancer Council's Beat Cancer Project, a unique collaboration between Cancer Council SA, the State Government, SAHMRI and the universities that has funded nearly 250 cancer research grants.
Your support will enable us to continue to fund this vital work, which will have an amazing impact of the lives of the 28 South Australians diagnosed with cancer every day.
Whether you donated online or through Australia Post, purchased a dedication at your local Foodland or purchased fresh flowers, every dollar you raised will make a huge difference.
If you didn't get a chance to show your support, there's still time to make a donation online via the Daffodil Day website.
On behalf of everyone affected by cancer and all those here at Cancer Council SA - thank you for your generosity.
Through your support, we are able to continue to work towards a cancer free future, every minute, every hour, every day.
