Media Advisory: Their Excellencies to Mark the Beginning of the Canadian Cancer Society's Daffodil Campaign for 2014

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Their Excellencies the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, and Mrs. Sharon Johnston will receive a bouquet of daffodils and pins from two young cancer patients to mark the beginning of the Canadian Cancer Society's Daffodil Campaign for 2014. The presentation will take place on Tuesday, April 1, 2014, at 10 a.m., in the greenhouses of Rideau Hall.

Daffodil Month, held every April, is the month to fight back against cancer. Across the country, Canadian Cancer Society volunteers will be selling bright yellow daffodil pins, as well as fresh daffodils, which symbolize strength and courage in the fight against cancer. By wearing the pin throughout the month of April, Canadians will show their support for people living with cancer.

Funds raised during the Daffodil Campaign will help the Society fund promising cancer research; inform and support Canadians living with cancer; and advocate for public policies to improve the health of Canadians.
