The Daffodil Ball
For 60 years, the Canadian Cancer Society has celebrated the Daffodil Campaign in spring. For this very special edition, let’s pursue the work we started 28 years ago with the first Daffodil Ball, which has now become an internationally renowned Montreal tradition. Your support is extremely important for the nearly 1 in 2 Quebecers who will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime.
When he was only 27 years old, Sylvain was diagnosed with advanced melanoma. For two years, he underwent intensive treatment, including participating in a clinical trial that helped save his life. He had to leave his home and country for treatment. Fortunately, his family was able to accompany him and stayed together at a lodge nearby his treatment center. Sylvain was able to count on their support and comfort.
For the last 13 years, Sylvain Poissant has been involved with the Canadian Cancer Society and has proudly taken part in its prevention work and efforts to provide support.
The Canadian Cancer Society is the only organization that offers a national support network to people living with any type of cancer, at any stage of the disease.
Right now, people with cancer are even more vulnerable, as they’re alone and often isolated due to the pandemic.
