Sabina Higgins is urging the nation to get behind Daffodil Day on March 22nd to show solidarity and support for anyone affected by cancer.

Joined by Irish Cancer Society’s CEO, Averil Power in Áras an Uachtaráin to celebrate upcoming Daffodil Day on Friday March 22nd, she highlighted the importance of the Irish Cancer Society’s vital supports and services and reminded women of all ages to be aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

Sabina Higgins said “The Irish Cancer Society provides invaluable help and assistance to cancer patients and their families across Ireland, and I would encourage everyone to support Daffodil Day on March 22nd to help fund their work with patients and families, and to boost cancer research.

“I would also like to thank everyone again for their kind messages of support through my diagnosis and treatment. And I would like to remind women of all ages, particularly those over 70, to continue to check for any potential symptoms of breast cancer and to seek medical advice if they notice anything unusual.”

“We would like to thank Sabina for her incredible openness about her breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, and for her help and support after the challenges she has faced. We also want to remind people if you have been affected by cancer, the Irish Cancer Society is here for you.
