POLICEMAN Dougal is on the hunt for a cancer cure this Daffodil Day.

The Cancer Council’s annual fundraiser is on Friday, and this year collectable bear Dougal is donning the blue uniform.

Daffodil Day is celebrating 25 years in Western Australia, with the Cancer Council aiming to raise over $4 million across thousands of sites all over the country towards cancer research.

Cancer Council WA chief executive Ashley Reid said while advances were being made in research and improved survival rates, 350 Australians were still diagnosed with cancer every day.

“Support for Daffodil Day ensures that we’re investing in cutting-edge, life-saving research happening right here in WA to give all Australians hope for a cancer-free future,” he said.

The organisation is the largest not-for-profit funder of cancer research in Australia.

You can support Daffodil Day by purchasing merchandise at one of the sites across Perth on Friday, donating online, or dedicating a daffodil online to someone you love.
