Dear editor, Every April during Daffodil Month, the Canadian Cancer Society relies on tens of thousands of volunteers to canvass their neighbourhoods to help raise money in the fight against cancer. To make this year's door-to-door campaign a success, we're challenging the residents of Georgetown to walk their block and join the Canadian Cancer Society as volunteer canvassers. It's estimated that 2 out of 5 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. But, by donating just a few hours of time, residents of Georgetown can help change this statistic and bring hope to people living with cancer in our community. Canvassing is also a great way to build our community's spirit, get re-acquainted with old neighbours and meet new ones. The money raised during Daffodil Month helps the Canadian Cancer Society assist people affected with cancer in our community by: · Providing more than 8,600 trips to cancer treatments · Offering community support services to people living with cancer, their family members and friends · Helping the Canadian Cancer Society fund leading-edge Canadian Cancer research · Providing extensive and reliable information on all types of cancer To become a volunteer door-todoor canvasser, please call Sherry Teeter at 1-866-711-0111 ext. 28. You can be a face in the fight against cancer. Together, let's make cancer history.
