Daffodil Day ensures Daffodil House can support survivors like Trevor Johnson

Trev's cancer journey began when he had kidney stone surgery and received a diagnosis for prostate cancer. Thankfully, he has fully recovered. During his treatment in Dunedin, Trev and his wife Sandra travelled from their home on Stewart Island to stay at Daffodil House, which is supported by donations.

Trev and Sandra shared:

“We are so thankful for all the Cancer Society support, the volunteers for all their time—so many people to thank.

All the people that you don’t see, the people who work behind the scenes—from the people out there doing the volunteer work, people sewing bags, knitting hats, raising funds, to the collectors on Daffodil Day.

We may not know you, but we are so grateful for all you do.”

Daffodil Day, our annual street appeal, symbolises hope for Trevor’s family and all New Zealanders impacted by cancer. For 31 years, this iconic event has inspired people to come together and support the Cancer Society's work.

Donations can be made at daffodilday.org.nz, at any ANZ branch during August, or during the street appeal on Friday, 27 August.
