The local Lions Clubs of the Comox Valley (Black Creek Lions, CV Monarch Lions, Comox Lions and Baynes Sound Lions) are excited to start their relationship with the Canadian Cancer Society and will serve in the month of April to distribute the Daffodil Pins around local businesses in and around the Comox Valley.  The Lions encourage people to buy a pin and wear it in the month of April to show your support for Canadians living with cancer now.

Daffodil Month is a national fundraising campaign of the Canadian Cancer Society.

The daffodil is a symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer.  During the month of April volunteers raise vital funds for the fight against cancer.

“The local Lions Clubs are doing this for the Canadian Cancer Society because we are committed to fighting cancer and providing support to people living with cancer,” said president of the CV Monarch Lions Rick Grinham.

Money raised during Daffodil Month helps local patients living with cancer and their families. Donations fund life-saving research, support services and other important work that means fewer Canadians will be touched by the disease.
