For over 100 years, the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto has performed Daffydil, a spectacular theatrical production, to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Since its inception, Daffydil has raised over $700,000 for charity. The show is entirely produced, directed, written and performed by students in the Faculty of Medicine.
Daffydil is among the oldest traditions of the University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine. It draws upon the creative talents of students in the faculty and channels it towards a cause that is personal to some of us, yet dear to us all: the search for more advanced treatments and medical care for those afflicted by cancer. We invite you to join us in this cause.
Cancer is the leading cause of death in Canada and is responsible for about 30% of all deaths. It is estimated that 187,600 new cases of cancer and 75,500 deaths from cancer occurred in Canada in 2013.
