The Daffodil Ball,
the event of the spring season!

The Canadian Cancer Society and co-chairs of the 2024 Daffodil Ball invite you to take part in the 31st edition of this unique event. There are several options for participating in the event: purchase a table, sponsor an element of the Ball, become a service partner or donate. All funds raised during the evening will be invested in our research and support programs in Quebec.

The importance of research

An inspiring testimony by Evelyne Sauvé and the key role the CCS team plays in supporting people diagnosed with cancer. Our vision for research is to fund a selected portfolio of high-calibre research projects that are considered scientifically excellent, improve cancer outcomes and address the best opportunities for progress. Having funded outstanding research projects since 1947 and as Canada’s largest cancer charity, we are uniquely positioned to drive advances that will change lives and benefit people nationwide.

Your support makes a real difference

At CCS, we know that profound progress is possible when we act together. In 2021/22, over 470,000 donors, more than 20,000 organizations and over 95,000 event participants and volunteers helped us invest $97.8M in our mission. We couldn’t do what we do without you.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR TRAVEL

This program helps thousands of people get to their doctor’s appointments and rids
them of the financial stress caused by such travels. Learn more about our program.

Cancer information helpline

Our Cancer Information Helpline is an essential service for people affected by cancer. It lends a sympathetic ear and provides personalized support to those in need. 

Jacques‑Cantin Lodge

Our goal is to provide all the amenities necessary, with the warmth and comfort of home, to people staying at Jacques Cantin Lodge. It allows families to be there for loved ones affected by cancer as they undergo treatment.

THE IMPORTANCE OF RESEARCH

An inspiring testimony by evelyne sauvé

In the summer of 2021, during the height of the pandemic, Evelyne was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite this shocking news, Evelyne made a decision to keep living her life and to stay active in order to maintain her mental health and that of her loved ones. In February 2022, after undergoing two surgeries she learned that there were no traces of cancer in her body. Ever since, Evelyne has been grateful to be alive because of the scientific breakthroughs that spared her life and works alongside the CCS to tell her story and share this message.

« It’s important for me to be involved in this Daffodil Ball campaign with the Canadian Cancer Society because it’s thanks to research that I’m still here today. It is thanks to research breakthrough that the doctors knew so much about my breast cancer. It was diagnosed earlier and treated more effectively as a result. I am asking for your help and generosity so that people like me can continue to live a long and full life after a cancer diagnosis. »
