MASA “Butterflies for Kids with Cancer” Project Update: More Butterflies

Good Day, Peeps. here’s hoping you all had a fantastic Madiba Day and everyone did their 67 minutes worth of good deeds 😀

As promised, here are the latest butterfly entries for the MASA “Butterflies for Kids with Cancer” Project in aid of Little Fighters Cancer Trust.

2015 BUTTERFLIES FOR KIDS WITH CANCER – in Support of Little Fighters Cancer Trust

Here are the latest additions to  our growing garden of beautiful butterflies all made with love for out Little Fighters and soon to adorn the walls of the various Paediatric Oncology Wards throughout South Africa.

Included in this lot, please note that there are 4 butterflies that have traveled all the way from New Zealand… when the “Butterflies for Kids with Cancer” Project organiser, Cher’s family in New Zealand heard about the project they also wanted to do something for Little Fighters Cancer Trust, so they made us some beautiful butterflies and sent them over, all carefully and safely wrapped in bubble-wrap.

I have it on very reliable information that we should receive around 120 butterflies in total for our oncology wards; one of the ladies involved came up with a great plan as to how best to display these beautiful colourful creatures, and we are very excited to see the end result as we know our Little Fighters are going to be besides themselves.

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
