Our greatest wish here at Little Fighters Cancer Trust is that we can do as much as possible to help those families where there is a child with cancer in the household. To this end we try to offer as much help as possible in whichever way possible.
Part of dealing with cancer is also having some reading material and resources where one can read up about the illness that one’s child has been newly diagnosed with and knowing where to go to find out more information.
Our idea with this page is to give you links to information about cancer, hospitals, new research, different therapies, alternate and mainline cures, and whatever else we can find or receive requests for.
It is going to take a while to build up all the resources, but every journey starts with the first step, so here goes…
Please do not hesitate to Contact Us if there is something that you feel would help you or other little fighters or their families through their long fight with cancer.
This page will be growing more and more as we go along, and will probably change quite a bit over time as we get new information and more resources, so please continue to visit it to see what is new.
