About

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
