Little fighters stories:
Please feel free to read all the stories of our little fighters. PLEASE NOTE: Not all the photographs in our Little Fighters Albums are nice to look at. Some of the photographs depict the horrid realities of Childhood Cancer. Sensitive viewers should be mindful.
Tammy Lee McThomas
Tammy-Lee is 9 years old, and in Grade 3 at Touwsriver Primary School.
On May 26th, 2015, a 30cm growth was removed from her abdomen, as well as one of her ovaries. She was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and is starting her chemotherapy treatment tomorrow.
In this case, we would like to mention Mr Bennie du Plessies, the headmaster of Touwsriver Primary School. He made contact with us shortly after Tammy-Lee was diagnosed, and since, has organized fundraisers at school to assist Tammy-Lee's Family and actively does childhood cancer awaeness drives in their local community.
Even though Tammy-Lee does not feel well every day, the school is most accommodating, in having a special room for her where she can rest if she tires during the day, as she wants to spend time with her friends when possible.
