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!!!
It is ✨Thankful Thursday ✨ and once again we have SO much to be thankful for that our hearts are brimming over with gratitude 🙏 🙏 🙏
Team LFCT would firstly like to thank ALL of our WONDERFUL supporters for all your donations – without YOU we could do NONE of this.
It is for this reason that we love to show you all where your donations go, so that you can see the smiles and gratitude with which everything is received. These Little Fighters and their Families generally have little to no resources and depend on what LFCT can do for them to help them get through this incredibly tough time.
Please be assured that even though we can often not show you photos of the children themselves due to hospital privacy policies or due to some other legitimate reason, their beautiful little smiles put a ray of sunshine into our hearts and from ours hopefully to yours! 🌞
If you are living in the southern hemisphere you will most probably have felt the chilliness of winter creeping in, especially at night time. The days are growing shorter and the evenings and early mornings are decidedly cold, and it will not be long before the days are the same and we will be fully into another cold, wet winter.
While most of us do not like Winter because we get cold feel miserable, Winter is far worse for Children with Cancer because they feel the cold far worse, even when they are in hospital because of the harsh cancer treatments that they are undergoing.
Many of our Little Fighters also suffer greatly when at home because they live under circumstances that are not ideal for healthy individuals, never mind a small child fighting cancer, due to poverty. Many of them live in tiny, draughty homes that may also become flooded when it rains hard; this adds to their discomfort and is also dangerous as their immune systems are already compromised from the treatment; should they then get a cold or contract influenza, it can have a devastating affect on their health.
