Dedication to our Little Fighters


Childhood Cancer is rare yet it is also far too common, and our Little Fighters and their Families are fighting the fight of their lives every single day.

While we are not the parents of our Beneficiaries, each and every single child with which we work is OUR child and we feel every emotion when they are ill, when they are rushed to hospital, when they celebrate their achievements, when they get their Angel Wings…

We share the parents’ pain and sit for hours on end waiting for updates; we check in with them as often as possible, and we try to help out when, where and however we are able to…

We often cry at the utter helplessness we see and hear (but never in front of anyone) and carry our Little Fighter’s welfare in our hearts 24/7/365 but MOST OF ALL we SALUTE their courage; we salute the fact that our Little Fighters handle everything with a smile and that their parents are SO STRONG!!!

Today we would like to share this joyful, beautiful message with all our Little Fighters and their Families, with love from Team Little Fighter’s Cancer Trust

 

 

Patients, families and staff at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center’s Division of Pediatric Oncology sing along to the song, “What Makes You Beautiful” by British band One Direction.

Why not really get in the mood and sing along…

“What Makes You Beautiful”

You’re insecure,
Don’t know what for,
You’re turning heads when you walk through the door,
Don’t need make-up,
To cover up,
Being the way that you are is enough,

Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you,

Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,
But when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell,
You don’t know,
Oh, oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful,
If only you saw what I can see,
You’d understand why I want you so desperately,
Right now I’m looking at you and I can’t believe,
You don’t know,
Oh, oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful,
Oh, oh,
That’s what makes you beautiful

So c-come on.
You got it wrong.
To prove I’m right
I put it in a song.
I don’t know why
You’re being shy,
And turn away when I look into your eye-eye-eyes,

Everyone else in the room can see it,
Everyone else but you,

Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,
But when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell,
You don’t know,
Oh oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful,
If only you saw what I can see,
You’ll understand why I want you so desperately,
Right now I’m looking at you and I can’t believe,
You don’t know,
Oh oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful,
Oh oh,

That’s what makes you beautiful

Na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na [x2]

Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,
But when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell,

You don’t know,
Oh oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful,

Baby you light up my world like nobody else,
The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed,
But when you smile at the ground it ain’t hard to tell,
You don’t know,
Oh oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful (Oh),
If only you saw what I can see,
You’ll understand why I want you so desperately…desperately,
Right now I’m looking at you and I can’t believe,
You don’t know,
Oh oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful,
Oh oh,
You don’t know you’re beautiful,
Oh oh,

That’s what makes you beautiful

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
