Western students are preparing to celebrate Daffodil month slightly early in recognition of cancer awareness.
Alice Barnett, charity commissioner for the University Students' Council, said there will be a Canadian Cancer Society booth in the University Community Centre atrium today. It will be set up for those who wish to give a donation to help fund research for breast cancer.
Along with the booth, there will be a memorial board for anyone who knows someone who has been diagnosed with cancer. Students are asked to write the person's name on the board and to help out by making a small donation.
"By people becoming aware of how big of an issue cancer is, they will help by doing their part," Barnett said.
Daffodil Day is on March 24.
