Join us with your voice, and help hope take root. A Daffodil Campaign like no other.
The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is proud to be the champion and voice for Canadians who care about cancer. At CCS, we know that cancer changes people, but we believe that a cancer diagnosis doesn’t have to define who they are. We aim to help people live longer and enhance the quality of life for all of those affected by cancer.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world affecting everyone including the people we serve, many of whom are at heightened risk. Currently, more than 1 million people in the country are living with and beyond cancer and could have compromised immune systems that puts them at a greater risk of more serious outcomes if they contract COVID-19. Unfortunate-ly, cancer doesn’t stop being a life-changing and life-threatening disease in the middle of a global health crisis.
In order to put the well-being and safety of people affected by cancer, and our collective of sup-porters, volunteers and staff first, we have decided to replace our traditional offline and in-person Daffodil Campaign activities, with a virtual model.
On Saturday, April 11, 2020 - 3 pm, Canadians are invited to a virtual national sing-a-thon in support of the Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Campaign. CCS will be partnering with Choir! Choir! Choir! to connect Canadians from coast-to-coast in an online singalong through Facebook Live and YouTube Live

While we can’t be physically together to support the cancer cause, there is so much we can do virtually to show our support for Canadians affected by cancer. Join us online with your family and loved ones at 3pm on April 11 to have fun, spread hope and unite through song.
You can make a real difference for some of Canada’s most vulnerable people at this difficult time. Together, we can prove that life is bigger than cancer.
Where donations go
With your support, CCS helps people with cancer live their lives more fully. Funds raised through our Daffodil Campaign are changing lives for the better. Only the Canadian Cancer Society enables a national support system that makes a real difference for people affected by cancer.
Now more than ever during the COVID-19 outbreak, our digital and phone support programs are critical to the people we serve, providing information, reducing anxiety and limiting isolation. These vital services include:
• Live phone support through our Cancer Information Service, a toll-free helpline for people who have questions about cancer
• Our online and phone-based peer support programs including Peer Match and cancer-connection.ca that help people with cancer and their caregivers build community and connection
• Our trusted health information on cancer.ca, which can help people better manage life with cancer and answer questions they may have
What is Choir?
Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (AKA “DaBu”) started Choir! Choir! Choir! as a weekly drop-in singing event in February 2011. Equal parts singing, comedy, and community-building, the night unfolds like a dream: you get a lyric sheet at the door, DaBu teach you the vocal arrangement, and a video is recorded. Everyone has a ball and goes home feeling great!
You can typically join them Tuesdays in Toronto, or around the world on DaBu’s many tours. Visit choirchoirchoir.com where you can sign up for email or Facebook updates. Depending on where you live, they have options so you get the information you need! They have performed in holes, on hills, and on big stages at Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Massey Hall, The Juno Awards, Joe’s Pub, Art Gallery of Ontario, Parliament Hill in Ottawa, National Arts Centre, Luminato Festival, at TEDx Toronto, the Polaris Music Prize Gala and many more. And they’ve been by guest singers such as David Byrne, Patti Smith, Rufus Wainwright, Rick Astley, Tegan and Sara, Bruce Cockburn, Kathleen Edwards, Colin Hay (Men At Work), Joel Plaskett, Sarah Harmer, and Chris Murphy (Sloan).
