MONTREAL, March 27, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) will launch a vast solidarity movement to encourage people in Quebec to support people living with cancer.
Those who will be present:
- Actress Marie Turgeon, Daffodil Month spokesperson, and a few Daffodil Month 2012 ambassadors (Tammy Verge, Justin Trudeau, Angelo Cadet, Claudia Larochelle, Benoît Roberge) as well as a CCS team to appeal to commuters in the station to support the CCS and take part in Daffodil Month by wearing a daffodil pin or buying a bouquet of fresh daffodils.
- The public will also be invited to take part in a collective work by writing the name of a person living with cancer, who they will be fighting for in April, on a large mural. The names of people living with cancer will take the shape of a giant daffodil, symbol of life and of cancer.
This mural will be displayed at the National Assembly on March 29. Through this act, the CCS wishes to keep the pressing needs of people living with cancer alive and at the centre of the concerns of our elected leaders.
Media representatives can take videos/photos and will have the opportunity to speak to Marie Turgeon, the ambassadors, and the CCS spokesperson. Each of them will be prompted to say who they will be fighting for in April.
