April is Daffodil Month, and all month long bookmarks have been available in library branches and daffodils have been for sale all over our communities. The bookmarks state, “The daffodil is the Canadian Cancer Society’s symbol of hope and represents the fight against all cancers. … This year we are encouraging all Manitobans to wear our new daffodil pin throughout the month of April, most importantly on Daffodil Day – April 27. When you wear the new daffodil pin, you’re showing people who are living with cancer that they are not alone, and honouring loved ones lost to cancer.” We encourage all those who received the Daffodil bookmarks to continue using them throughout the year.
The library has many new titles to help those whose lives have been altered by cancer. Among the newest books is Winning the Battle Against Prostate Cancer: Get the Treatment That Is Right for You by Gerald Chodak M.D. This book covers screening, prevention and treatment. It offers a thorough explanation of all therapies available, in clear and easy to understand language.
This is only one of the many new cancer related books found on library shelves. If you, or someone you love has been affected by cancer, the library is a good place to go for information.
