A Daffodil against cancer, Institut Curie
- From March 9, 2021 to March 21, 2021
From March 9th to 21st, the Institut Curie is organising the 17th edition of A Daffodil Against Cancer. Show your support in the fight against cancer!
**In the light of the current health crisis, the fight against cancer must continue more than ever. Once again this year, the Institut Curie is calling on the general public to mobilise, from 9 to 21 March 2021, for the 17th edition of its national solidarity campaign A Daffodil Against Cancer.
The month of March will once again be placed under the sign of hope against cancer, this time with, on the programme, measures and activities adapted to the health crisis. The Institute is mobilising the general public, companies, associations, local authorities and municipalities throughout France with the aim of raising funds to support medical innovation and cancer research, particularly the big data revolution and artificial intelligence.
As cancer has been the leading cause of death in France since 2004, the Institute fights on a daily basis to give hope to the 3 million people living with cancer, and the 400,000 people who are diagnosed each year.
Due to health restrictions, the mobilisation and sales events will take place virtually on social networks and on the campaign website.
The objective is to raise over €700,000 in donations to enable the Institute and its teams to develop new treatments for the benefit of cancer patients.
