Daffodil Day is Cancer Council’s flagship campaign to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. On 31 August each year, millions of Australians band together to buy daffodils and/or donate online. Last year, Daffodil Day raised ~$2.5 million!
According to Cancer Council, one in two people will be affected by cancer in their lifetimes. Research can reduce the impact of cancer in many ways, from early detection to revolutionary treatment options. Investment in research by organisations like Cancer Council has helped increase survival rates from 49% in the 1980s to 69% today. Learn about some of Australia’s best cancer researchers here.
If you would like to learn more, read the host of booklets and fact sheets available on Cancer Council’s website for people affected by cancer, including people who have been diagnosed with cancer, as well as their carers, family, and friends. Each booklet or fact sheet addresses a different aspect of cancer and provides practical information to help you understand what you are going through, including answers to common questions, tips, checklists, and where to go for support.
Many cancer patients feel more comfortable receiving care at home so that they’re not separated from family, friends and familiar surroundings. But cancer is a condition that can change relationships and require families to address new issues.
Home care support services or in-home care as it is often referred to, is great way to alleviate some of the pressures of family caregiving when it comes to cancer, allowing you to focus on emotional support instead of the details of daily activities. Right at Home caregivers can help with any of the Care Services such as companion care, personal care, shopping, transport to appointments, community connection, as well as skilled nursing care and additionally, support to supplement any palliative care needed.
