We actively engage with others and each other to achieve our shared objectives. We create inclusive and empowering connections with and between our stakeholders to build the capacity we need to bring about great change.
What does the Daffodil in our logo represent?
The daffodil has been recognised internationally as the symbol of hope for people in our community affected by cancer either directly or indirectly. The daffodil heralds spring, the season of hope and the new life it brings. It also reminds us that there is life after a diagnosis of cancer. The daffodil is also the basis of one of flagship fundraising event, Daffodil Day.
Every minute, every hour, every day
As WA's leading cancer charity, every day we're working to support families, prevent cancer, and save lives.
From providing practical and financial support to West Australians affected by cancer, to speaking out on behalf of the community, stopping cancer before it starts, and researching new ways to better detect, treat and defeat cancer, every minute, every hour, every day we're working towards our vision of a cancer free future.
