Santa Saying Thank You Most of you know Little Fighter Shanaya by now – she is such a strong Little Princess with such a beautiful smile and personality – just like her mommy, Lee-Ann Govender….
While dealing with her daughter’s cancer, running back and forth to the hospital, chemotherapy treatments and all that goes with having a Child with Cancer, Lee-Ann still had time to act as an LFCT Christmas Elf.
Not only did all Lee-Ann’s colleagues jump in and collect a fantastic number of toys for our Christmas Elf project, but her Director, Leanne Parsons, also went above and beyond by arranging a Golf Day in her personal capacity, with her family and friends to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust!

Lee-Ann’s colleagues collected a wonderful range of presents which have been distributed to either some Little Fighters in hospital/Day Clinic or to our Little Fighters and their siblings as part of our Family Festive Food Parcel project. 
LFCT sends food, cleaning materials and other special needs to our Families every month, and in December we also send presents for our Little Fighters as well as any siblings so that nobody is left out.
One of the biggest stressors, apart from the cancer itself, when a child has cancer, is Financial Stress as in most cases one of the parents has to quit their employment to look after the child, essentially halving the family income at a time when financial costs go up astronomically, and at Christmas time there is extra stress as everyone wants to give their children Christmas presents because Christmas is about children after all.
These gifts will go very far to make the lives of our Little Fighters and their Families a little easier at a time that is an incredibly stressful time for a household where there is a Child with Cancer.

From the bottom of our hearts and those of our Little Fighters and their Families – THANK YOU!!

 

Christmas, my child, is love in action.
Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.

Leanne Parsons, Director of the Equity Market for JSE Limited and an Executive Director of JSE Limited, pictured above in green shirt and white shorts, got her friends ‘n family together – all toffed up in  Christmas colours – for a 🦋Shanaya Golf Day🦋 on 10 December as a Fundraiser in aid of the Little Fighters Cancer Trust.
Great fun was had by all, as can be seen by the broad smiles in the photos, but best of all, these unofficial Christmas Elves also donated some much-needed goodies and made some awesome financial donations too!
The 🦋Shanaya Golf Day🦋 brought in a staggering amount of just under R25 000-00 towards the work that the Little Fighters Cancer Trust does with Children with Cancer and their Families.

Leanne Parsons, Friends & Family – THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

You have NO idea how much this kind of donation means to the Little Fighters Cancer Trust and just how much we can do with it and how far we can make it stretch.

From the bottom of our hearts and those of our Little Fighters and their Families – THANK YOU!!

 

Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting.
It is happiness because we see joy in people.
It is forgetting self and finding time for others.
It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values
~ Thomas S. Monson ~
