MASA Butterflies for Kids with Cancer Sneak Peak

Ooooooohhhhh… just popped over to the (MASA) Coffee Shop on FaceBook and found some lovely WIPs (Works in Progress) there for the MASA “Butterflies for Kids with Cancer” Project.

This project is in support of Little Fighters Cancer Trust and is running from March until the end of August, when the Top 10 (20)  will be chosen and submitted to LFCT to raise additional funds by auction or raffles. The balance of the mosaics will be put up in paediatric oncology wards all over the country to brighten up the wards a bit with beautiful colourful butterflies.

Here are some of the WIPs

About LFCT

CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit Childhood Cancer support 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
