Seven7 DRIVE for Kids with Cancer Update – On the Road!



Late yesterday afternoon the lads all packed their goodies, shaved their heads in preparation for the trip and cancer awareness, dressed nicely and then proceeded to jump around excitedly for the next few hours until it was time to leave.

Just on midnight our 3 intrepid travelers, Danie Botha, G.G van Rooyen and Jan van Deventer took off on the first leg of their wonderful SEVEN 7 Drive for Kids with Cancer, visiting Seven countries in 7 days to raise funds for Children with Cancer who are terminal and are not covered by Medical Aid. They will also visit a child with Cancer in hospital in each of the countries.

NamibiaDay 1 of the trip is an approximate 1546km journey from Johannesburg to Namibia. The Team is due to arrive in Windhoek, Namibia @ approximately 3pm to check into Arrebusch Travel Lodge. During the day the Team will go to Windhoek Hospital for Cancer Kid visit number 1.

The team will then do a bit of sightseeing and catch up on some sleep, readying themselves to leave for the next leg of the trip to Francistown, Botswana at 4am on Friday.



We will post photos and further updates as we get them from the Team.

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
