Our Love …


gold_ribbon_with_butterflySeptember is International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and once again the Little Fighters Cancer Trust is hard at work sharing everything we can regarding Childhood Cancer and trying to raise Childhood Cancer Awareness by sharing information and Personal Stories with you.

Today we thought that, seeing that we finished Ryan’s story yesterday, it would be fitting to end the week off with another poem written by Ryan’s mother, Michelle.

Writing down how one feels is probably one of the best things that any parent of a Child with Cancer can do, as it is one way of getting all those emotions out that one just cannot always share with others.

We will be publishing more of these poems by Michelle throughout this month as we work hard to bring Childhood Cancer to the fore and spread Childhood Cancer Awareness – all in the effort to inform and educate other parents to the ravages of Childhood Cancer and to remind everyone that

The Best Defence against Childhood Cancer is Awareness and Early Diagnosis

Our love …

As you look down on me from heaven above
I feel your presence with gratifying love.
Our love is written in the stars
no more pain, no more scars
except for my broken heart
the day we had to part.

Our love is everlasting and will never die
one day I will meet you in the sky.
Our love has conquered death
you brought out in me the best.
There is no substitute for you
I know you feel the same way about me too.

Our love was strengthened by our struggles
you are now free from all troubles.
Nothing will ever change my love for you
as sure as the sky is blue.
Our love is forever and ever
no one can take it away; never.

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
