On Tuesday 15th May, Team LFCT and Friend and Supporter Charlene Elliot took the opportunity to make the Onco Mommies at Tygerberg Hospital G3 Paediatric Oncology Ward feel a little bit spoiled by organising some lovely presents and snacks for them.
These mommies go through such a hard time, some of them spending months at the hospital while their child is undergoing treatment – most often without any friends or family to support them through what must be one of the most terrifying times any mother could ever have to endure.
It was lovely to see the mommies just sit down and relax for a bit, to have a bite to eat and talk and laugh a little.
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! 🌞
