My Story

“I participated in this event last year because I thought it was a good cause to support. So I shaved my head and raised some money, not knowing that three months later my own son, who was 4.5 years old at the time, would be diagnosed with White blood cancer, commonly known as Leukaemia ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia). This news simply made everything stop in our lives. We kept thinking, how could this happen to our beloved son? After getting diagnosed, my son had to stay in the hospital for two months for immediate chemotherapy treatment. From the bottom of my heart, I can honestly say that the CCF was a life saver to all of us. They accompany both the parents and the children during this very difficult period. We had a dedicated counsellor to guide us if we had any issues with the hospital. The counsellor also spent quality time with our son and played with him when we just did not have the courage or the energy to do so, as sometimes, we were emotionally drained. CCF does so much for the children. For example, when they enter the operating room, they usually get scared and start crying. The CCF representatives are there for them to give them comfort and calm them down before the anaesthetic ‎start to kick in. They also bring gifts to the children and treats during festive and holiday seasons and donate toys and video games for the children to play with in the hospital. Having been in the hospital for the good part of the last six months, I can testify that your donation to CCF really helps save lives and provide critical assistance to children with cancer ‎and their parents. Please join us in shaving your head or donating generously. The people at CCF are real angels. Sesa on behalf of Obi..
