Happy Diwali

The festival of lights, an Indian holiday that we celebrated over the weekend.

The message and wishes of Diwali are victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance!

Inspire Kindness

We found a blog on kindness at Inspire Kindess and thought we would share this list.

Here are 20 ideas for kind acts to give your children: 

1. Call your grandparents.

2. Plan a bear hunt in your neighborhood by asking people to put stuffed bears to their windows. Download printable poster and social media post

3. Add encouraging messages to your sidewalks using chalk.

4. Make kindness rocks.

5. FaceTime a friend from school that you don’t talk to often to say hello.

6. Write a note to a parent to let them know they are doing a good job being your parent.

7. Make your parents breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

8. Don’t fight with your siblings. 

9. Color pictures for people you love and then put them in the mail. 

10. Leave a note and a small gift for delivery drivers.

11. Write a letter or make a card for a relative.

12. Do your chores without being asked and without complaining.

13. Stay at least 6 feet away from other people, even your grandparents.

14. Pick weeds from your flower beds and gardens. 

15. Tell each of your family members one thing you love about them.

16. Lead a prayer before dinner asking for this virus to go away.

17. Call your cousins.

18. Give a parent a big hug out of the blue.

19. Host a virtual game night with friends.

20. Place large signs with kind messages in your windows so people can be inspired as they drive or walk by.

Help Raise Childhood Cancer Awareness

Little Fighters Cancer Trust

childhood_cancer_awareness_September is International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and once again the Little Fighters Cancer Trust is hard at work sharing everything we can regarding Childhood Cancer and trying to raise Childhood Cancer Awareness by sharing information and Personal Stories with you.

Today we are  sharing another poem filled with heartache, anguish, pain, guilt, thankfulness and all those other emotions that a parent of a Child with Cancer goes through, written by Reece Barends’ mother, Ashleigh Barends aka da mamma.

The Little Fighters Cancer Trust would like to sincerely thank all our Onco Parents that have shared with us in the hope that their stories can help other parents who have children that are ill but are not sure what the problem is, and to raise Childhood Cancer Awareness so that earlier diagnosis can be done.

We will continue to publish more poems and stories by Onco Parents throughout this month…
