Reaching Out

Children helping children

Totus Tuus wants to create a conscience of love and solidarity in children and in their parents, so that they can become an active part of our work at our hospice for abandoned and terminally ill children.

PRAY - We are looking for more than 1,000 boys and girls who are willing to pray for our children and our work on a regular basis.

REACH  OUT - We are looking for ideas and the collaboration of children and their parents in helping us find ways to reach more kids who can help our cause.

GIVE - Also, please consider a donation to help our work. If each one of us contributes we will be able to fulfill our vision of spreading the Love of God to help more children in need!

Children in Need

Colombia is one of the countries with the highest incidence and mortality from cancer in children. On average, each year 2,081 new cases of cancer are detected in children from birth to 15 years, with an incidence of 22.2 per 100,000 infants.

Most of the cases submitted are for leukemia and lymphoma. Unfortunately, for these children the recovery rate is only 50%. It is estimated that 30% of children with cancer leave the treatment and 20% experience relapse of the disease.

Indeed, as mortality rates reveal, cancer is the second leading cause of infant death in the Colombia (Source: Colombiana de Hemato - Oncología Pediatric Association, the National Cancer Institute and Colombian League Against Cancer, 2007; DANE 2000-2002; Globocan 2002).

Testimonials from Children

Alicio does not see his family for eleven years when he was brought to Bogota because of his illness: "I lived with my dad and my grandmother. When I was hospitalized for the disease in Ubaté. I was three years old. My dad came and said: 'We return in fifteen days' ... and never returned."

Camilo: "Cancer changed my life. Before I was cheerful and happy. Now I am bitter. A month ago my leg was amputated because doctors put me to choose: my leg or my life. After that I felt a lot of sadness and boredom, and did not want to talk to anybody. I did not want anyone to see me like this. Now I am more stable ... but it is not easy."

Teresita cares about accurately portraying her image on paper, taking into account the impact that the disease has had on her physical appearance: "Look at me, how well am I that I have moles? Can I miss one for my painting? I am a little inflamed by the chemotherapy."

Alicia (14 years, leukemia):
"I associate the disease with the word pain ... because what you see is pain, nothing more. Pain physical, mental ... Both in one as the other. "

“I accept with joy and preciousness the death that the Lord has reserved for me, in perfect surrender to His most Holly Will. May the Lord accept my life and death to the honor and glory of His Name…”
St. Therese Benedict of the Cross Edith Stein


And create in me the Will of God,
Have the Divine Will take possesion of me,
Enrapture my heart to enclose it in the Will of God.
Rule over my will in order to convert in Into Divine Will
My Mother by your son´s resurrection, make me rise into the Will of God
Fiat, Fiat Fiat
(Fiat is:Be it done onto me / yes !)
"I recognize myself: As a new creation of God´s Love"
"I know that you love me, my God and I love you with all my heart"
"I want to love as you love and do as you want me to do"
Come Divine Will Come to rule on us

Prayer to San Michael Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Christ has no body but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth, but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which He looks
With compassion on this world.
Yours are the feet with which He walks
To do good.
Yours are the hands with which He blesses
All the world.
Yours are the hands.
Yours are the feet.
Yours are the eyes.
Yours are His Body.

—St Theresa of Avila
