Last month, we ran our iconic and much-loved flagship campaign, Daffodil Day Appeal, which officially fell on Friday 27 August and raised funds for life-saving cancer research.

As part of this year's campaign, our staff hit the streets to sell fresh daffodils at locations across the Perth CBD for our Daffodil Day Street Appeal, which was held on Thursday 26 August.

We also partnered with Muzz Buzz to run our first EVER drive through flower markets at 20 Muzz Buzz locations across Perth, with the help of some of our amazing volunteers.

Thanks to generous community support, we've currently raised over $138,271, all to help create a future without cancer.

A future without cancer is the dream we all share, and we at Cancer Council WA are incredibly thankful to all our supporters, volunteers and staff who are helping every day to make this dream a reality.

Every new day of research helps bring us one day closer to reaching a world with no cancer. And every new treatment funded makes the lives of Australians impacted by cancer so much better.

Here are a few highlights from this year's Daffodil Day Appeal...
