Top 20 “Butterflies for Kids with Cancer”


And here we have it, Folks! With over 200 votes cast, the Little Fighters Cancer Trust and MASA are proud to introduce the TOP 20 Butterflies for Kids with Cancer as voted for by you!

These 20 butterflies will be sent directly to the Little Fighters Cancer Trust to be sold, auctioned or raffled off to raise more funds so make your pick as to which one you would like to brighten up your home or office (or give as a gift)! We will announce exactly how we will be offering these later this month.

The other approximately 330 butterflies will now be mounted on wooden strips ready for installation in the Paediatric Oncology Wards of all the hospitals with which the Little Fighters Cancer Trust works all over South Africa, so that they will look as though they have just alighted on the panels in a bright array of beautiful colours and shapes that are sure to bring some joy to our Little Fighters.


Congratulations to Lorna Gardner and the team from East London who have 11 Butterflies in the Top 20 – clear evidence of the commitment and dedication to this project.

The Little Fighters Cancer Trust would once again like to thank MASA, Cher Manning and each and every contributor and participant for their overwhelming caring, compassion and generosity of time and spirit that they gave to the MASA Butterflies for Kids with Cancer Project in aid of the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.

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
