Good Afternoon Little Fighters Cancer Trust Peeps!

Last week we launched our  Climbing Kili for Cancer Kids Fundraising Adventure with you, and this week we are proud to announce that two people who regularly hike with Andre and co were so enamoured of the idea of climbing Kili to raise funds for Little Fighters Cancer Trust that they asked to join the team.

Just a reminder that the Team will depart on 29 June and will start their hike on 1 July, taking on the trek to Uhuru Peak via the Rongai Route to raise Childhood Cancer Awareness and funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.  They will sleep over in tents, in caves, and in campsites along the way, and the trek will take 6 or 7 days, getting them back to the base on the evening of the 6th of July.

Our New Adventurers

Laetitia SchreuderLaetitia Schreuder ~ This full-time career woman, part-time Salsa teacher and single mom, leads a pretty busy life as it is, but she also has a love for the outdoors and never declines an outdoor adventure or being part of a charity project involving children or animals, both being very close to her heart.

Having lost both her grandfathers, an uncle and her stepmother to cancer, Laetitia understands the support required by those fighting cancer and their loved ones only too well.

“Climbing Kili for Cancer Kids brings all the strings together for me and sharing this experience with my only child makes it even more special.  A small gesture could mean the world to somebody else and it starts with one person. Don’t waste time – If you don’t like something, change it, If you can’t change it, change your attitude ~ Maya Angelou”


Tiaan SchreuderTiaan Schreuder  ~ This Grade 11 student at Melkbosstrand Private School has a passion for the performing arts and, like any other teenager today, technology. Tiaan is the youngest member of Team Kili and is excited to be in the fortunate position to be a part of the Climb Kili for Cancer Kids adventure.

“The journey up Kilimanjaro will teach me things that I cannot get in a classroom. With this I want to prove to myself and to my fellow teenagers that it is possible to conquer any “mountain” if you put your mind to it. Make the most of every day. I am taking on this challenge in honour of Ouma Hippo (Grandmother) and Oupa Kierie (Great Grandfather)”

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
