✨Thankful Thursday ✨ MORE Blankies & MORE PIZZA

It is ✨Thankful Thursday ✨ and once again we have SO much to be thankful for that our hearts are almost exploding with gratitude 🙏 🙏 🙏

The Little Fighters Cancer Trust is still busy delivering all of the warm blankets that YOU donated for our Little Fighters as well as all those wonderful pizzas that Roman’s Pizza donated for our Little Fighters  as part of their Mandela Day Celebrations thanks to YOUR votes.

Just imagine that you are a child lying in hospital day after day, week after week, and sometimes month after month – sick, in pain, undergoing vicious treatment for a vicious disease, no appetite, and when you can eat it is hospital food…. now imagine suddenly smelling the delicious aroma of PIZZA!!!

Last week we had plenty more rumbling tummies and salivating staff as they drove in a car LOADED with scrumptious, aromatic pizzas on the way to the hospitals and TONS OF SMILES from our Little Fighters, their bedside carers and staff upon arrival.


Grey’s Hospital Pietermaritzburg – 28 & 30 July

Our Ambassador Lauren delivered beautiful new blankets to all the Little Fighters and their Mommies at Grey’s Hospital’s Paediatric Oncology Unit on the 28th July.

Lauren let us know that Mommies and Staff were SO grateful for this gifting:

Thank you so much to everyone who donated blankets – I visited Grey’s Hospital at PMB, KZN. The moms and grans told me to say thank you so much. The kids loved the soft colourful blankets. I got lots of smiles, hugs and hi fives.

On Sunday 30th, Lauren & Michelle Bennett spent a few very special hours at Grey’s Hospital delivering yummy pizza treats to the Children and Mommies in the Paediatric Oncology Unit, complements of Roman’s Pizza.

🙏THANK YOU again to every Individual LFCT Supporter who donated blankets. This is what we do with your Generosity!🙏

🙏THANK YOU to all our Supporters who nominated LFCT & THANK YOU, 🍕Romans Pizza 🍕🙏




🍕 Pizza Party Albert Luthuli Hospital –  1 August 🍕

On 1 August it was the chance of the Little Fighters, Bedside Carers and Staff at Albert Luthuli Hospital in Durban to get a wonderful surprise when the Little Fighters Cancer Trust representatives walked in there with 52 large PIZZAS!!!

A treat every now and again is as good as a holiday, and little eyes were so fixed on lunch, that even chemo drips went in quicker and with less trauma than usual.

🙏THANK YOU Vasie and Seelan from Sitara Energy for being our hands in Durban and doing all our deliveries on our behalf.🙏

🙏THANK YOU to all our Supporters who nominated LFCT & THANK YOU, 🍕Romans Pizza 🍕🙏




🍕 Pizza Party Red Cross G1  –  3 August 🍕

On 3 August Mandie and Callie took to the road again, firstly popping in at Romans Pizza in Athlone, where the awesome staff had already prepared 70 pizzas before they arrived, and by the time Mandie & Callie had finished their pizza breakfast, everything was ready to go.

Then off to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital they went, a tower of 70 pizzas trailing wonderful aromas behind them.

Once there they offloaded the still-hot pizzas and dealt pizza, juice and blankets out to the Little Fighters and Parents in the Outpatient Clinic. Thereafter they proceeded to the wards where, because they could not go into the wards, the parents came out to collect for themselves and their Little Fighters. (They did peep into some of the rooms from a distance though and were met with HUGE smiles behind those open pizza boxes.)


🙏THANK YOU again to every Individual LFCT Supporter who donated blankets. This is what we do with your Generosity!🙏

🙏THANK YOU Callie for being our chauffeur and helping do all the deliveries 🙏

🙏THANK YOU to all our Supporters who nominated LFCT & THANK YOU, 🍕Romans Pizza 🍕🙏




🍕 Pizza Party Tygerberg Hospital – 4 August 🍕


On 4 August Team LFCT once again hit the road to Romans Athlone and then to deliver 60 piping hot, fragrant and delicious pizzas to the Paediatric Oncology Ward and Clinic at Tygerberg Hospital.

All of the Little Fighters, Parents, Doctors and Nursing Staff  were thoroughly spoiled with Pizza and Juice for lunch, and BOY did they appreciate it!

Mandie says that when they went into some of the rooms to do the deliveries, many a Little Fighter sat up, eyes bright, and with BIG smiles – some even had a little finger curling, calling them silently to come closer.


🙏 THANK YOU again to every Individual LFCT Supporter who makes it possible for us to continuously DO MORE! 🙏

🙏 THANK YOU to all our Supporters who nominated LFCT & THANK YOU, 🍕Romans Pizza 🍕🙏


 🍕We will be spreading more #CheesySmiles across the country within the next little while! 🍕





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
