{Outstanding Little Life Warriors Award Presentation}
(Hong Kong, 26 Oct 2019) The Little Life Warrior Society (LLWS) organised the 4th “Outstanding Little Life Warriors Award” Presentation and “Little Warriors’ Carers Award Ceremony” at the Auditorium, Hong Kong Children’s Hospital today to celebrate the courage and resilience of five awardees – Sean Glass, Ho Suet Hei, Lam Tsz Huen, Leung Chung Kuen and Yu Chui Yee (Please refer to the awardees’ details in Chinese).

Targeting at people who had cancer, severe blood diseases or bone marrow transplant during their childhood, LLWS initiated the “Outstanding Little Life Warriors Award” in 2015 with the aim to recognise the outstanding achievements of the awardees, encourage them to serve as role models for other children in similar situations and to raise public awareness of child patients. This year, 5 patients have been chosen to receive the award. They all had severe diseases during their childhood but they managed to overcome the challenges and achieve outstanding results in various aspects. Two awardees have taken part in international fencing competitions and have outstanding achievements. One awardee has taken part in international badminton competitions and have good results. Another awardee become a camp manager of Hong Kong PHAB Association, strived at promoting integration for persons with and without disabilities; the other awardee has been working at education sector and tries to give back to the community.

Attending the ceremony as the award presenter, Professor Sophia Chan Siu-chee, Secretary for Food and Health, HKSAR congratulated all the awardees and said that the Award was a big encouragement to them. Other VIPs attending the ceremony included Professor Wu Ting Yuk Anthony, National Standing Committee Member, The Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and Honorary Patron of LLWS; Dr Lee Tsz-Leung, Hospital Chief Executive, Hong Kong Children’s Hospital; Dr. Chui Ka Ho Jackie, Associate Consultant, Department of Paediatrics, Queen Elizabeth Hospital; Dr. Lee So Lun, Chief of Service, Department of Paediatrics, Queen Mary Hospital and Dr. Ku Tak Loi Dennis, Chairman, Hong Kong Paediatric Haematology and Oncology Study Group.

“LLWS holds the ‘Outstanding Little Life Warriors Award’ in order to encourage hospitalised child patients and survivors to face their difficulties with a positive mind and perseverance so as to live a brilliant life,” said Ms. Chan Wai Yee Ois, Chairperson of LLWS. “With the opening of the Hong Kong Children’s Hospital (HKCH), the management of child cancer patients will be centralised. The merger of the five organisations has been completed in late March 2019. We expect that the resources would be centralised in good use and able to deliver well planned services to little warriors and their families efficiently.”

In addition to Outstanding Little Life Warriors, LLWS also presented awards to four Excellent Little Life Warriors who have not been awarded the “Outstanding Award” but have shown excellent performances. The four awardees are Samuel Au Yeung, Deng Ka Ching, Tsoi Sze Sen and Yung Yan Yi.

Besides, we introduce a new award for carers – “Little Warriors’ Carers Award”. It aims at commending those who have been taking care of child cancer patients. They give unconditionally and offered their love and care to these children while they were sick. This year we commend two parents of little warriors, one medical professional and a domestic helper of a child patient.
