The Ugly Truth of Paediatric Cancer
Good Morning, Little Fighters Cancer Trust Community.
Today’s post is not a happy post ~ it is a post to remind us that cancer does not only happen to adults; it happens to children too. Cancer is an equal opportunity disease that anyone of any age, gender, race can contract, and it is UGLY!!
The Ugly Truth of Paediatric Cancer is that it leaves the parents feeling totally inadequate; totally helpless, and in so much pain that it is almost too much to bear.
This video shows the ugly side of paediatric cancer, and just a glimpse into the world of it. Pediatric cancer is not a fun, happy place. It is filled with grief, tears, anger, and great pain for both the child with cancer and his/her family and loved ones.
Please watch this video and imagine what it asks you to imagine….
Now Imagine that this is YOUR child ~ or the child of someone near and dear to YOU!

~*Meet The Kids in the Video*~
Ellie Potvin – Stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma
Layla Grace Marsh – Stage 4 Neuroblastoma
Samantha Arnett – PNET brain tumor
This must end. Wear gold for pediatric cancer awareness.
Childhood Cancer is STEALING the lives of beautiful youngsters of all ages all over the world! Childhood Cancer is a THIEF and a MURDERER!
Each and every one of us has a duty to Raise Awareness about Childhood Cancer, to be aware of the Childhood Cancer Early Warning Signs and make others aware of them.
Another way that you can help is to support those organisations that work with Childhood Cancer patients. Little Fighters Cancer Trust is currently assisting approximately 1200 Children with Cancer and their families all over South Africa.
If you would like to help, please visit our Volunteering page for ideas on how you can either become a volunteer (there are various types of volunteers that we need all over South Africa) or how else you can contribute.
You can also Make A Donation or support the work that we do by signing up for a Daily Inspirational Message via SMS @ only R10 per week (that gets automatically deducted from your airtime so you won’t even miss it.)
PLEASE HELP US TO HELP THEM
BECAUSE CHILDREN CANNOT FIGHT CANCER ALONE!
