Wishing You A Joyous Festive Season


The Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to thank every one of our Donors, Supporters, Ambassadors, Volunteers & Staff for everything that YOU have done to make the lives of our Little Fighters and their Families just that bit easier throughout 2018.

This has been a very difficult year for most people, but thanks to you all, LFCT managed to still take care of the most vulnerable children and their families with advice, information, love and practical assistance.

We did various outreaches to our Little Fighters in hospital as well as at home, and apart from the thousands of presents, clothes, blankest and snack-packs,  we also managed to send every one of our registered families a Family Care Package every month so that they at least had all the basics plus some toys for all the kids in the family.

We also had a lovely Christmas Party (sponsored by the Lions, Paarl) for our local Little Fighters and their Families and every Little Fighter plus each of their siblings – Nationally – were sent a lovely Christmas present together with the Family Festive Season Care Package.

Thanks to your donations and thanks to #KargoInternational, there will be Joy and Feasting in all our Registered Little Fighter Families this Festive Season.

About LFCT

CHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit Childhood Cancer support 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
