The Duchess of Cambridge has written an emotional letter in support of the UK’s Children’s Hospice Week. The event is UK’s only national awareness and fund-raising week for children with life-limiting conditions that may not allow them to reach adulthood.
The Duchess of Cambridge offers supportive message
“For families of children with life-limiting conditions, every moment is precious and every memory needs to be cherished and celebrated,” the Duchess of Cambridge wrote in her letter which she personally signed.
“Children’s hospices strive to create happy moments in the most difficult times any family could face. I hope you will join me in supporting Children’s Hospice Week and work to make every moment count for all of our families,” she said.
Kate Middleton is the Royal Patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices since June 2014. Barbara Gelb OBE, CEO of Together for Short Lives that organizes the Hospice Week, hoped that the Duchess can inspire more people to support the cause.
“Children’s Hospice Week this year is all about helping children and families make the most of the time they have together. The campaign raises awareness about all the important services supporting these families and how they focus on life – however short it may be,” Gelb said in an announcement.
“We hope the public will be inspired to support Children’s Hospice Week this year and help the 49,000 children and their families make the most of their precious time together.”
