No One Fights Alone – A Song Dedicated to Children Fighting Cancer Around the World


faith_hope_childhood_cancer_bannerAs we close off Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to remind everyone that Childhood Cancer does not happen only in September; young children are diagnosed with cancer every single day.

Every day there are millions of Little Fighters across the globe caught up in the fight of their lives; in the fight FOR their lives.

Every day, hundreds of parents hear the devastating news that their child has cancer, and every day parents and siblings of Children with Cancer fight the good fight too – when a child has cancer, the whole family is affected.

Please remember that Children with Cancer and their Families need help throughout the year, which we try our best to give, but we cannot do it without YOUR help.

Children with Cancer and their Families need encouragement, hope, and love, but they also need more practical help such as food, clothing, bedding, special dietary products, personal hygiene products, financial help to pay some bills, rent, traveling expenses, accommodation and more.

You can find a full list of what we need in order to help our Little Fighters and their Families on Our Wishlist Page.

With this thought in mind we would like to share a video entitled No One Fights Alone with you today, because where we can help it, No One Fights Alone!

Former American Idol contestant and cancer survivor Christian Spear sings No One Fights Alone. Spear is a 15 year cancer survivor herself and now she is proud to inspire each child she meets.

No One Fights Alone is about uniting in the fight against cancer and it’s dedicated to children at Texas Children’s Cancer Center and children fighting cancer across the globe in honour of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

“Cancer can’t steal away your joy or ever dim your light,
Cancer can’t break your spirit or take away your will to fight.”

 

The song is written and recorded by Spear and Anita Kruse, founder and executive director of Purple Songs Can Fly.

Purple Songs Can Fly is a unique program that provides a musical outlet for the many children being treated for cancer and blood disorders. In this program, the children work with founder, Anita Kruse, and other professional composers to write and record their own songs.

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
