With around 360,000 Australians currently living with cancer and a further 350 people told they have cancer every day, it is likely most people will know someone affected by the disease in some way.
It could be a family member, work colleague, or neighbour, when it comes to beating the disease everyone has what it takes to help.
To raise vital funds for cancer research and support programs, Australians are urged to wear a Cancer Council daffodil pin and show support for someone they know who has been affected by cancer.
Also, keep an eye out for Daffodil Day stalls selling Cancer Council merchandise in your local area.
The more money that's raised the more research can be done.
