Artwork for Sale ~ Sponsors Needed


 

Art 1

We have featured the story of little Heini, who has undergone two operations for Brain Cancer and is currently still undergoing radiation treatment, in a few of our earlier articles, and now we would like to tell you a bit about his mother again…

“Mom Lize is a widow, and is travelling this hard road of crisis upon crisis solo. She was the only child of a couple who have already passed on and Heini’s father died 2 years ago. Due to this, she is walking a difficult path full of thorns and pitfalls that make it difficult to face everyday life. At this stage she still needs to give her full attention to her little boy, for whom she waited so many years, and who is her most precious treasure.”

What We Need

The paintings featured in this article are painted by Heini’s mom, Lize, in a bid to earn an income to help with the huge medical costs and day-to-day living costs for her and Heini as she cannot go back to work due to Heini’s condition which is not good. (Heini is very susceptible to germs and is also going blind).

What we need is help for Lize to sell her paintings and a sponsor for the materials that she uses to paint them (paints, material etc).

How YOU can Help

Anyone can buy the paintings, all you need do is contact Lize via the Facebook Page set up for Heini and arrangements can be made.

What Lize REALLY needs is an art shop/studio that could help her to market her paintings and someone/a business who would be so kind as to sponsor her the materials needed so that she can continue to paint as a form of income.

If YOU live in the George/Oudtshoorn area and have a business or have access to a shop, a market, a coffe shop/restaurant, or any other place where the paintings could be advertised and sold, PLEASE HELP.

If you are an individual who would like to help by sponsoring some cloth/canvas or paint, this too would be most welcome…

Kindly contact Lize via Heini’s Facebook Page if you can help in any way

About LFCT

This is a blog about CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
