A Stranger Comes To Call

Kehoe quote

A Stranger Comes To Call

Some weeks ago through medical doubt
I met someone I’d heard lots about
I never thought our paths would cross
Our meeting left me at a loss.
I’d had no contact with this guy
He picked me out…… I wonder why?

He’s very sneaky, changes disguise
I’ve made small payments towards his demise,
But he moves about with sadistic glee
And now he takes revenge on me.
He’s never redundant nor on the dole
He violates your inner soul.

He’s sometimes slow and sometimes swift
But the net result is Satan’s gift.
What can I do now he’s moved in?
He’s hurting now my next of kin.
He’s no compassion no fear no shame
It’s no surprise cancer’s his name.

World-wide great efforts attack this thing,
And wondrous improvements this will bring
They’ll drain his strength give him the sack
Once beaten he’ll have no way back
It may be too late for you or me
But we’ll fight our corner as best can be.

With help from family and friends
With medical treatment and new trends
We’ll do our best through smooth and rough
To stay real positive ……. hang in tough.
And maybe before our final breath
We may rejoice at cancers death.

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
