✨Thankful Thursday✨


The Little Fighters Cancer Trust functions with a tiny full-time team of 4 and works Nationally with the help of various Volunteers, Ambassadors, Representatives, and some wonderful Corporates too, without whom we could literally not function and do everything that we do.

These are the people who work in the background and about whom most of you do not know, or if you do even know that they exist, have absolutely no idea of exactly how integral they are to the continued existence and functioning of LFCT ~ These are the individuals that are the backbone of an organisation like ours…

We think that it is time that we change this fact, so we will be running a series of articles over the next little while that highlights these integral members of Team LFCT.

“A kind gesture can reach a wound
That only compassion can heal.
~ Steve Maraboli ~

 

Today we are honouring and thankful for the help of a dynamite little package in the form of the wife of one of our Trustees – Willeen Louw.

Willeen is the wife of Donovan Louw, and for some time now this lady has jumped in feet first to help wherever she can – from driving their bakkie to fetch donated goods and getting in there with the packing and unpacking of boxes into and out of the bakkie, unpacking of boxes of goods at our HQ, to anything and everything that we need.

Willeen is the person who, at the drop of a hat, will respond to a cry for help phone call from Nickey with an “Of course, see you asap” and off she goes to do whatever it is that is needed.

Willeen we just want to say “Thank You” for everything that you do for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust with no recompense and due to the nature of the work that goes on at a non-profit organisation and the madness and all the crisis, sometimes without a thank you because there is just too much going on and we forget.

So, lest we forget again, we would just like to say

With Loads of Love & Appreciation
Nickey, Tiema, Eric & Billi

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
