Farad’s Frames ~ For Sale!

Farads Hussain is making and selling these absolutely BEAUTIFUL picture frames. Farads says that he does not only want to make Islamic frames, but wants to make frames for all religious groups and has somebody that will be helping him to make frames with Christian pictures too.

Little Fighters Cancer Trust would really appreciate it if you could share this post and direct anyone who may be interested to Farads for further information. Farads is struggling with his FB Page, but we will help him to organise something so that he can be easily contacted.

Muhammad Ebrahim Hussain

Muhammad Ebrahim Hussain

Farads is the father of one of our Little Fighters, Muhamad Ebrahim. Muhamad Ebrahim was born on 15/09/2009. From the age of 6 months, the new parents began noticing that Mohamad was not always feeling too well. After numerous visits to the pediatricians, Mohamad was diagnosed with a condition known as Heamophycotic Syndrome. He was admitted to hospital for a four month stay at this time.

For 18 months, Muhammad was doing well. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in March 2012.

Muhamad and his family are based in Port Elizabeth and have to travel to Cape Town for treatment every so often at Red Cross Children’s Hospital. When well enough to receive treatment in Port Elizabeth, Muhammad is treated at Greenacres Hospital.

Muhammad’s father, a qualified pharmacist, had to leave his employment to be the primary care giver. Often in hospital for several months at a time, it is impossible for Muhammad’s Father to commit to employment at this stage. The decision for Muhammad’s Mother to continue her nursing studies was made whilst keeping in mind that she is very close to receiving her qualification.

The family has made huge sacrifices to offer Muhammad the best that they possibly can. The strain, financially and emotionally, has been horrific, but they are still standing and weathering the onslaught of childhood cancer bravely.




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
