Radiothon for Cancer on VOCM - Canadian Cancer Society | Donate Today

About the Radiothon

VOCM and the Canadian Cancer Society are hosting a radiothon this year!

On Thursday, November 16, starting at 7 a.m., VOCM will broadcast live for 24 hours from Daffodil Place. This radiothon supports the One Night Stand Against Cancer campaign, which raises money for Daffodil Place.

We are kindly asking Newfoundland and Labradorians to pick up the tab for a night at Daffodil Place. It costs the Canadian Cancer Society $100 per night to provide a guest of Daffodil Place with affordable comfort and care. Accommodation includes 3 hot meals plus snacks daily, transportation between appointments, evening entertainment, and emotional and practical support. Daffodil Place eases the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis and helps someone focus on their treatment.

The success of this campaign depends on the generosity and support we receive from individuals and local businesses.

Please pick up the tab to support people in the province when they need it most.
