Thankful Thursday: Get WRAPPED Project

Team Little Fighters Cancer Trust would just like to send out a bit (or a lot) of love to all of our Supporters across the Globe – we would not be able to do any of what we do without all of YOUR help.

Today we would especially like to thank each and every one of our supporters who donated to our annual Get WRAPPED Project – you will NEVER know how much those blankets that you donated mean to our Little Fighters and their Families.

Your donations mean that our Little Fighters will not get cold, either in hospital or at home while they are undergoing treatment, which is critical as they cannot afford to get a cold or even worse, the flu, due to their impaired immune systems from the cancer and the cancer treatments like Radiation Therapy and Chemotherapy. Thank You!

Your donations also help keep our Little Fighters’ bedside-carers warm while the spend hours and hours sitting (and often sleeping) in a chair next to their child’s bed in hospital. Thank You!

We would also like to thank the following individuals, companies, and organisations  for their kind donations:

THANK YOU to BCX/UCS Technology Services who collected 220 new blankets for us as part of their staff driven and supported Youth Day celebrations.

Special thanks to Chaslyn for sending off our email request for Supporting #GetWrapped, through the right channels at work. As an onco-mommy herself, she is always ready and wlling to help where possible.



THANK YOU to the Directorate Community Services in Paarl for Supporting Little Fighters Cancer Trust’s #GetWrapped Project!

Special thanks to Mommy Felicia, second from the right, who drove this campaign and who has already delivered a large box of blankets last week as well! Thank You!



THANK YOU to Faith and the #Blossoms who delivered 51 warm, snuggly new blankets for our #GetWrapped Project and thank you to all who donated blankies to their Drive.

Thanks to you another 51 Little Fighters/Bedside Carers will be able to keep warm this freezing winter.

Faith and the #Blossoms are regular supporters of The Little Fighters cancer Trust and we always love to see them – with or without donations – as they always spread the cheer wherever they are.

Thank you all for being such great people and always doing good whenever you can. Thank You!



THANK YOU to #Oiltanking for the donation of beautifully branded blankets toward our #GetWrapped project.

Not only did Oil Tanking donate these great blankets, but they also very kindly donated a lovely gift for each child.

A special mention to Yuvasthie and Staff in Durban for your beautiful and most caring Support! Thank You!




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
