Why Kirstina wears a daffodil pin

Eight-year-old Kirstina wears a daffodil pin to show solidarity with her friend who fought cancer.

"I wear the daffodil pin so she knows she's not alone and if she sees this she knows that someone's supporting her, she's going to have lots of hope and help and pretty soon she's going to get better. I hope that she gets better."

Sadly, Kirstina's friend has since passed away. But Kirstina remains committed to doing whatever she can to help bring hope to those living with cancer.

Join the fight against cancer by purchasing a daffodil pin during April – the Canadian Cancer Society's Daffodil Month – and support thousands of Canadians on their cancer journeys. Visit Fightback.ca.
