Children fighting life-threatening illnesses are often left feeling discouraged, frightened, emotionally drained, stressed and depressed. In some cases, even uninspired to continue living when suffering from a life-threatening illness in hospital. When looking at children admitted into hospital, being in hospital for long periods of time prohibits children from having “normal” experiences that contribute to their social and emotional development. Many children with cancer in SA are un-diagnosed. This is due to the lack of knowledge regarding the disease. As a result, many children are diagnosed too late, when the cancer is already in an advanced stage, thus diminishing the possibility of successful treatment. Despite these realities that our children face, we believe in the power of dreams and we encourage children to use their dreams to fight.
