The Little Fighters Cancer Trust draws it’s inspiration from children who have no choice but to battle Cancer daily and the trails and tribulations their families face. We started this trust for cancer babies and their families to give relief to their financial difficulties. We are trying to raise money to help these families. Some of the parents lost their jobs and business because of the medical bills and because they want to give their children the best medical care. These people needs petrol money, food, clothes and money for Hospital and Doctor bills.
We started this organization to support and assist children diagnosed with cancer and their families. Many families loose their homes, many parents have to resign from their jobs to look after the child full time, many simply cannot cope with the day to day pressures, financially or emotionally.
The Little Fighters Cancer Trust steps into this gap in the system, giving assistance where we can, and with it, hope. For any parent the best medical care for your child is of utmost importance despite the sacrifices. We believe that it is important for the families of children diagnosed with cancer, to maintain their dignity and to have a support system which they can rely upon.

The Little Fighters Cancer Trust draws it’s inspiration from children who have no choice but to battle Cancer daily and the trials and tribulations their families face.
The Trust has grown exponentially to support hundreds of Little Fighters and their families from right across South Africa and we extend our Prayer and healing Groups to any child World wide. The Trust volunteers it’ s services to any child diagnosed with Cancer, irrespective of race, religion, culture or language.
Some of what we aim to assist families with are the following:
Transporting Little Fighters and their families back and forth from hospitals. For many the traveling costs are crippling so we take care of this aspect for the families.
Offering assistance with paying the ever mounting medical expenses these families accrue. Every parent want the best medical care for their child under these circumstances, but medical care is hugely expensive and the majority of our Little Fighter’s families cannot afford medical insurances.
Donations of food, clothing, medical equipment and anything else to alleviate the financial burden of the families.
We organize special outings for Little Fighters and their families when they are able to travel so that they can have a semblance of normality and some fun and laughter.
We organize Prayer and Healing groups whenever one of the Little Fighters in our network has special need for such support or there is a sudden medical crisis.
