‘Never deprive someone of hope, it may be all they have.’ ~H Jackson Brown

The Irish Cancer Society’s annual Daffodil Day takes place today. Much money will be raised today for its direct patient care services including its night nursing service, counselling and outreach services. It is the most popular charity event in Ireland and is a chance for everyone to make a real difference to anyone affected by cancer. One in three people in Ireland will be affected by cancer at some point in their life. The Irish Cancer Society also provides one-to-one support to 15,000 people each year. We have all been touched by cancer in some way. There are so many heart aching stories but also many stories that are filled with hope and inspiration. There are different ways of spending €3 today but if you buy a daffodil for the Irish Cancer Society you will be making a real and lasting difference in many people’s lives. We pray today also for anyone who has cancer. When we turn to God all our problems may not go away but like shadows they can fall behind us. The National Cancer Helpline is Freefone 1800 200 700
