Daffodil Month a local success for CCS

Writer thanks businesses and supporters for raising $1,214.50 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, I would like to thank the communities of Ashcroft, Cache Creek and surrounding areas for supporting Daffodil Month during April.

Almost everyone is affected by this disease, either by personal diagnosis or that of a loved one. By wearing a daffodil pin in April we collectively stood together to show people living with cancer that they are not alone in the fight.

The following businesses showed their support by placing a Daffodil Box in their establishments. A special thanks to  Ashcroft and Cache Creek Liquor Stores, Ashcroft Bakery, Peoples’ Drug Store, OK Stop Gas Station, Anie’s Pizza, Husky House Gas Station and Restaurant, Dairy Queen, Copper Canyon Chevron and Shell Canada Products.

Thanks to the generosity of each one of you who made a donation, our communities raised $1214.50.  These dollars will continue to help fund the most promising research, offer vital support to those living with cancer, and try to prevent cancer by educating Canadians about early detection and advocating for healthy public policies.
