Wishlist Wednesday: Snug As a Bug Project


While we have been focusing on our Get WRAPPED project of late, wherein the Little Fighters Cancer Trust has been very busy collecting soft, warm blankets in which to wrap our Little Fighters both in hospital and at home against the biting cold, especially during treatments, those deliveries will occur imminently and we are soon to launch our next winter project,  Snug As a Bug – for the 5th Year!

Our Snug As a Bug Project encompasses collecting and distributing warm winter clothing for our Little Fighters – both those who are in hospital and those who are still undergoing treatment but are currently at home because the Little Fighters Cancer Trust understands that Families in which there is a Child with Cancer are so cash-strapped due to only one parent working and all the extra expenses because of the cancer that they cannot afford to purchase new clothing.

Children with Cancer get really cold due to the treatments they are undergoing, such as Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy, as well as due to their severely impaired immune systems, and cannot afford to get a cold or the flu so need to stay warm!

Please note that as with the blankets, we can only gift our Little Fighters with NEW clothing due to their impaired immune systems making them VERY prone to infections.

We have many Little Fighters in desperate need of a simple necessity…….warm clothes! 

We therefore ask that when doing your month-end shopping, you add one or two items of much-needed clothing for our Little Fighters as per the list below. Many department stores and clothing stores currently have sales on so you can get something great for a minimal amount.

 

The list of needs for Winter is:

  • Winter Fleecy Tops: Boys and Girls, Sizes: 2-3 years; 4-5 years; 6-7 years; 8-9 years, 9-10 years
  • Winter Long Pants: Boys and Girls, Sizes: 2-3 years; 4-5 years; 6-7 years; 8-9 years, 9-10 years
  • Warm Jackets: Boys and Girls, all sizes photo snug as a bug_zpssvw432aj.gif
  • Long Sleeved T-Shirts: Boys and Girls, Sizes: 2-3 years; 4-5 years; 6-7 years; 8-9 years, 9-10 years
  • Warm Winter Pantyhose for Girls, Sizes: 2-3 years; 4-5 years; 6-7 years; 8-9 years, 9-10 years
  • Winter Vests: Boys and Girls, All Sizes
  • Long-Johns and Tights: Boys and Girls, All Sizes
  • Winter Skirts for Girls, Sizes: 2-3 years; 4-5 years; 6-7 years; 8-9 years, 9-10 years

All of the above is also needed in small, medium and large for our Teenage Cancer Fighters

You can also donate financially, as, with our NPO status we are able to get some great bulk-buy discounts and can buy exactly what we still need so that our Little Fighters can get warm winter clothing that actually fits them.

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
