Today is International Childhood Cancer Day


LFCT ICCD 3Every child should have the right to health, which includes access to cancer treatment. The major problem with regards to Childhood Cancer in Africa is that the incidence of the disease is largely unknown and consequently there is a lack of reliable statistical data, which could influence health policies.

International Childhood Cancer Day is based on Childhood Cancer International’s (CCI) core belief that every child with cancer deserves the best possible medical and psychosocial care, regardless of country of origin, race, financial status or  social class. It is also anchored on the premise that childhood cancer deaths are avoidable, with timely and accurate diagnosis, availability and  access to proper treatment and care as well as affordable essential medicines.

Show your support for International Childhood Cancer Day by spreading Childhood Cancer Awareness, familiarising yourself with the Child Cancer Early Warning Signs (and sharing the information far and wide), and by donating to the Little Fighters Cancer Trust so that we can continue fighting for ALL Children With Cancer in South Africa.

The Little Fighters Cancer Trust offers support to Children with Cancer and their families via various Projects for which we rely on donations from the public.

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
