Happy Birthday to a Legend!!

mandie-erasmusToday the Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to take some time out to say Happy Birthday to one of our own, Mandie Erasmus.

Mandie is our Project Manager, Fundraiser, Events Manager, Public Relations Officer, Press Officer, Shoulder-to-cry-on, Packer, and General Dogsbody….

Mandie is also a single mother of two wonderful young lads and has eyesight problems that make her virtually blind and leave her with excruciating migraines more often than not because she cannot afford to have the operation that could remedy the problem. Despite this, Mandie is always there, always available to help… often fighting through blinding migraines and crippling nausea… yet always fighting for our Little Fighters and their Families ~ 24/7/365.

In short, Mandie is a LEGEND and an Angel in Human Form. Nobody who has ever dealt with LFCT has not spoken to Mandie at some stage or the other…

Today we would like to wish Mandie a wonderful, joy-filled birthday and a great year ahead.

Mandie, even though you are spending your birthday packing box after box of Christmas presents and groceries to go to our Little Fighter Families, we know that you are spending it doing what you love – in service to our Little Fighters!

On behalf of every single member of Team LFCT and all of our Little Fighter Families – we love you and appreciate you and everything that you do for us – keep on rocking and keep on smiling!





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
