Your valuable contribution allows us to continue supporting more children with cancer in treatment

Juana and Juliana are two girls diagnosed with acute leukemia, they receive treatment in Bogotá and have been able to participate in our recreational and artistic workshops, preparing songs and dances.

Juliana receives the performing arts teacher in her hospitalization, rehearsals begin and Juliana proposes to include a choreography, which is angelic. The teacher with a big smile watches her attentively and imitates her, they repeat the movements again and again ... without realizing it, the whole afternoon has passed full of enthusiasm, imagination and many laughs.

On the other hand Juana receives the body rhythm teacher in her room, Juana greets her with a big smile and shows her videos that she keeps on YouTube with musical rhythms that she likes; attentively they listen to the melodies and begin to create their own choreography. Juana rehearses the steps of the hand of her teacher and friend, they have fun and forget for a while the anguish of the disease.

Juliana and Juana are ready to show other children what they have learned from the hand of their singing and dancing teachers. The big day has arrived! It is the Christmas event and all the children of the Oncology service and their parents are expectant. The auditorium of the Clinic is decorated with balloons, the children have come down from their rooms ... they turn off the lights and on the stage two beautiful presentations were made. Music sounds and the girls delight us with their spectacular presentations. Everyone applauds and they feel strong and brave to achieve it ... despite fatigue or pain.

Juana and Juliana are our Life Inspirers. They go on and on #JuntosPorLaVida

¡Your contribution will allow us to carry out more workshops for children with cancer!

 

From the Colombian Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation we continue working with dedication and commitment for the benefit of children with cancer. The last few months have been very active, we have shared different activities with hospitalized children, making their hospital stay more enjoyable.

This is how we have conducted complementary workshops of English, performing arts, reading promotion and body rhythm, which have brightened children life and have motivated them to learn new things.

Drawing, music, vocal training, clown and artistic presentations allowed us to change the attention focus of children and their parents, helping them to improve their emotional well-being.

The children have expressed their pleasure in these spaces, they look forward to the Foundation staff, because after all, life goes on and the opportunity to believe and create is still present.

On March 19, 2019 was a day of tension and sadness; after an asthmatic crisis of three days, my daughter's health got worse and I had to take her to the hospital emergency department. A few days later, it was confirmed the diagnosis of acute lymphoid leukemia. We didn’t understand what was happening, because Maria Paula had been a healthy girl.

She started her chemotherapy treatment, and along the way it has been difficult to deal with complications from viruses, fevers, fatigue, in short ... the process has been really painful. I have had to face the fear and anguish of the possibility of loss and I have learned that although we live difficult moments where nothing seems to be right, they do not last forever, they are transitory, and is there, where we have managed to approach and strengthen ourselves in God.

We have been able to see how the joy and positivism of Maria Paula teach and motivate us to move forward.

Living the disease process of my little daughter has strengthened us as a family and strengthened our faith in God.

Before diagnosis, my time was dedicated to work and I had few spaces to share with my daughter, but the time in the hospital have allowed me precious time to share with her, to play and to know her more. I have also had the stillness and time necessary to reflect on the need to forgive.

In this process I met the Colombian Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation. This Foundation supports the Pediatric Oncology service of the Clinic in which my daughter is attended.

The psychologist, as well as a young cancer survivor, have visited us several times. His active listening and emotional support have been important, because we have had really difficult days. Feeling that we are not alone and that there is an institution that seeks our emotional well-being has been a great relief that my daughter and I appreciate.

To other parents who are living a similar situation to mine, I want to say them that everything is possible in God and that we should not wait or ask in our time, because God's calendar is eternal and his life plan is perfect. ”

 April is the month of the children´s celebration and as a foundation we decided to make an unforgettable day to all our warriors, to all those who are hospitalized or those who are receiving the chemotherapy treatment.

It was Wednesday Monday, and the day started with 6 of our volunteers ready to start the activity with the aim to put a smile in their faces including the children youngs and their families.

The hospital circus was the name given to this special activity, so it means that our people had disguised as clowns, acrobats, animals and others.

We started the morning visiting Juan, a 4-year-old boy diagnosed with leukemia; Juan showed us how brave is he, and also showed us the importance of joy, their laughter were unforgettable. Then we went to Mary's room who told us that she had not expected anyone to visit her, she told us that she was very excited to receive the circus in her room.

We want to emphasize that not only did the children and youngsters have fun; we also managed to brighten the moment for the parents and other caregivers who met, danced and played with us until the end of the day.

We also gave gifts to each of the children we visit; these gifts are donations that come to the foundation with which we can make children happy and who can distract them a little.

At the end of the day the beautiful Ana, a 10-year-old girl diagnosed with leukemia, gave us a hug and ask us to come back soon, for her and other children this day was amazing and  we are sure that they will be always in our hearts.

Thanks to your contribution, we continue to support more children with cancer!

The year 2018 ended with a beautiful Christmas party for children with cancer and their families. This is how we met in a huge farm on the outskirts of Bogotá, to have an unforgettable field day. The children, their parents, and their little brothers enjoyed live music, food, gifts, games, raffles and much more. The Christmas party was the best excuse to remember families that they are not alone, that many other children, like their children, fight against cancer; and that along with them there is a family that tries hard, that does not lose the hope of seeing their children victorious. This day we made the 7th version of the Courage and Love of a Child with Cancer award. 13 children applied, among whom a jury chose 3 finalists. The winner was Daniel, who was diagnosed with stage IV Hodgkin lymphoma at the beginning of 2018. He is a child full of dreams. He is a child full of dreams, one of them is being able to be a professional footballer, as well as a day to return to Venezuela to visit his family. For he has won this award represents a winner and he is sure that he is going to overcome his illness. The children received medals from the Foundation for being the bravest children, also tickets to the cinema and a Make a Wish bonus to fulfill their dream to the winner.
