The Little Fighters Cancer Trust (LFCT) is a Childhood Cancer Support Organisation. LFCT was established in 2010 when it was discovered that there are families touched by Childhood Cancer who needed help urgently but were falling through the cracks.   LFCT's Vision is to provide practical & emotional support to children with cancer and their families while working to raise public awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer throughout South Africa. LFCT strives to relieve some of the heartache and difficulties faced by childhood cancer affected families by:
  • Providing holistic support, ensuring that individuals, families and communities are included.
  • Treating each child with cancer and their family members as individuals; understanding and respecting the uniqueness of each situation.
  • The preservation of individual dignity and pride.
  • Promoting and Advocating National Childhood Cancer Awareness
The services LFCT offers are divided into three focus areas.
Hospital Ward Support
Individual and Family Support
Childhood Cancer Awareness

Our Services

LFCT strives to relieve some of the heartache and difficulties faced by childhood cancer affected families by providing services in the following three focus areas:
Hospital Ward Support

Hospital Ward Support encompasses the following:

Paediatric Oncology Hospital Ward Visits; Bags of Hope; Mother’s Day Gifts; Share the Warmth; Christmas Elf Project.

By implementing our hospital ward support project on outpatient clinic days, we are able to reach more than 2 000 children with cancer, and in many cases, their bedside care-givers as well.

Family Support

LFCT prioritises providing families affected by childhood cancer with Family Care Packages.

Our Family Care Packages contain basic foodstuffs, cleaning materials (hygiene vital for child with cancer), and clothing or blankets when possible.

Resources permitting, LFCT also helps with Funeral support; Family support after remission or death; Family outings, and more...

Child Cancer Awareness

Here at LFCT we believe in creating awareness 24/7/365!

We do this by Distributing Gold Awareness Ribbons & Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer cards, pamphlets and A1 laminated posters.

LFCT also runs a September Awareness Campaign and Gives informative presentations at schools, crèches, businesses etc.
