Thanks to the generosity of our community, the Canadian Cancer Society in SDG & Prescott Russell has raised over $35,000 in its April Daffodil Campaign.

“On any given day, more than 560 people will be diagnosed with cancer. That’s why we are always looking for new ways to prevent cancer, find it early and treat it more successfully. We know that fundraising enables change and we are grateful to our community for playing such a big part in advancing the cancer cause through their generosity," said Allison St-Jean, Community Fundraising Specialist.

Volunteers are gearing up for Relay For Life June 7 at the Maxville Fairgrounds. To sign up, visit www.relayforlife.ca/maxville or call 613-932-1283.
