30,000 people in Ireland this year will hear the words, “you’ve got cancer”. 1 in 3 people will be affected by cancer in their lifetime.
Today is Daffodil Day, Ireland’s longest running fundraising day, which helps to raise money to fund the Irish Cancer Society’s information, care and support services.
Last year bad weather hampered the efforts of volunteers, this year, skies are looking a little bit brighter, and Newstalk Reporter Naomi Linehan went out to speak some of the people involved in the preparations for Daffodil Day.
Have a listen:
