Wherever you are today, and whatever you are doing, we wish you a day of Love & Happiness and hope that you are being treated like a Queen by your Loved Ones.
To those of you who are sad, stressed, ill or otherwise not in the frame of mind or space to celebrate Women’s Day we send out ✨Blessings of Peace, Love & Light!✨
This National Women’s Day marks the 60th anniversary of the great Women’s March of 1956, where on 9 August 1956, about 20 000 women from all walks of life marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against legislation aimed at tightening the apartheid government’s control over the movement of black women in urban areas by making them also carry “passes” like black men had to.
Great strides have been made since then to improve the status of women in South Africa, especially post 1994, with women taking up leadership positions in areas previously dominated by men, including both business and political. The National Policy Framework for Women Empowerment and Gender Equality was approved by Cabinet in 2000 and this was followed by a dedicated Ministry for Women in the Presidency.
Another great Fundraising initiative from Little Fighters Cancer Trust to raise funding to help them with their HUGE task of helping Children with Cancer and their families across South Africa. Please support!
Things are cooking here at the Little Fighters Cancer Trust ! Today we are introducing yet another Fundraising Adventure ~ Climbing Kili for Cancer Kids.
Mount Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawenzi and Shira, is a dormant volcanic mountain in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world at 5,895 metres above sea level. [Source: Wikipedia]
Four intrepid hikers are going to take on the trek to Uhuru Peak via the Rongai Route in July to raise Cancer Awareness and funds for Little Fighters Cancer Trust.
The Rongai Route is the only northern approach to Kilimanjaro, and offers a true wilderness experience on the early stages of the climb and a very tough final summit from the north.

There Is No Cure For Cancer!!
No matter how we cut it and no matter how we wish it were so, There IS no cure for Cancer! Just as an alcoholic is never cured, an individual that has had cancer is also never cured ~ they just go into remission.
“Remission” is probably one of the most beautiful words you could hear when your child has been fighting cancer. It may, however not be the end of the line as far as caring may go.
What is Remission?
According to the dictionary, “Remission is abatement in intensity or degree (as in the manifestations of a disease.”)
In plain English, remission is a period of time in which the cancer is “under control.” There are 2 types of Remission:
- Partial Remission: This means that the cancer is responding well to the various treatments and is being held at bay
- Complete Remission:

Fighting Cancer by the Plateful
No single food can reduce your risk of cancer, but the right combination of foods may help make a difference. At mealtimes, strike a balance of at least two-thirds plant-based foods and no more than one-third animal protein. This “New American Plate” is an important cancer fighting tool, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research. Check out better and worse choices for your plate.
Check out this Cancer Pictures Slideshow: Top Cancer-Fighting Foods on MedicineNet, Inc for some great information as to what foods to eat that are known cancer fighting tools.
