“You just never know who’s going to be affected next; it could be a small child or an elderly person.
“It could touch anyone.”
Every day, more than 115 Australians die of cancer, and it’s a disease doesn’t discriminate.
That’s why Cancer Council volunteer Maree Robinson is imploring locals to support the charity, as it raises funds for cancer research today as part of Daffodil Day on Friday.
Maree and Enid Whiter have set up their stall in front of the Eden Pharmacy, selling a variety of products including daffodils, teddy bears, footballs, pens, pendants and keyrings.
“I think most people, whether it’s yourself, a family member or a friend, have been affected by cancer,” Maree said.
“Without cancer research, we’re not going to find a cure.
“We’re here today until about 3pm, and there are also stalls in Pambula, Merimbula and Bega.
“Not very many people will pass the stall without buying something or making a donation to the Cancer Council, which is lovely.
“It’s a most worthy charity and [Daffodil Day] is very well-supported, and the people of Eden are so generous.”
To the Cancer Council, the daffodil represents hope for a cancer-free future.

Daffodil Day merchandise will remain on sale throughout August, and you can donate to Daffodil Day at any time.
