Each year, hundreds of Cancer Council publications and brochures are distributed for affected people in the Campaspe shire, and nurses employed by the charity were able to respond to dozens of local emails answering questions about the disease.Thanks in part to the fundraising achieved through Daffodil Day, the rate of first year cancer survival has increased by 20 per cent since 1985.
