JULIE Saville is hoping to make a difference to the lives of those suffering from cancer.

Mrs Saville, 50, of Fairfield West, will volunteer her time this Friday as part of Daffodil Day.

She will set up a stall at Stockland Wetherill Park Shopping Centre and sell merchandise, as well as daffodils, in a bid to raise funds for the Cancer Council.

It will mark the 17th consecutive year she has taken part.

"My daughter Chloe and I will be selling badges, pens, dougal bears and fresh flowers on the day," Mrs Saville said. "I've had a lot of family and close friends die from cancer so this is something very personal to me."

Mrs Saville said it was important to raise awareness about the event to help those affected by cancer.

"Everyone tends to want to wear a badge on the day so that would be our most popular item of purchase," she said.

Her stall will be open Friday, 9am to 5pm.

The Cancer Council uses funds raised through Daffodil Day to continue its work in cancer research as well as providing patient support and prevention programs.
