2014 Christmas Elf Project ~ Tygerberg Hospital


And so the deliveries of the 2014 Christmas Elf Project kicked off this week with the first deliveries being done to the Little Fighters at Tygerberg Hospital in the Western Cape. Tygerberg Hospital is the first of 14 hospitals that Little Fighters Cancer Trust will do deliveries of some Christmas Cheer to this year…

Here are just some of the smiles that we were privileged to put on faces that rarely have anything to smile about these days… (more photos on Facebook)

A HUGE THANK YOU to two very special Christmas elves that helped us with the delivery, and to everyone who has had any part in making the Little Fighters Cancer Trust Christmas Elf Project a success!

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
