Aw! Duchess Catherine Makes Time For Six-Year-Old Cancer Sufferer!

| Filed under: Royals RoyceInspiration

This warms and breaks our hearts all at the same time. What a special thing her Highness did for this special little girl.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had one more stop in Canada before they come to our neck of the woods. The couple stopped off in Calgary, where they were greeted not only by a slew of Canadian officials and the press, but also 6 year old fan Diamond Marshall, whose dream was to meet a real life princess.

This strong, brave little girl is suffering from a undifferentiated sarcoma, a rare childhood cancer that affects the body's soft tissues. Since February, she's been fighting an abdominal tumor with surgeries and chemotherapy, thus leaving her weak and without any hair. Shortly after the Royal Wedding, Diamond wrote to Kate, talking about her mother, who lost her battle to cancer herself four years ago, and Diamond's wish to meet Kate. In her letter, she wrote:

"Dear Princess Kate. My name is Diamond Ann. I am six. I was named after Princess Diana. My Mommy Memory is in heaven with her.

I have cancer. I spend a lot of time at the hospital. I watched you get married from my bed there. You looked pretty.

I like playing Princess dress up. My favourite princess is Aurora. Who is yours. I would really like to meet you. Do you want to meet me too? "

Who could refuse an invitation like that! Sure enough, after being contacted by the Children's Wish Foundation, Kate made time for the young fan upon arriving in Calgary. Diamond and her family met the Royal couple on the tarmac, bringing Kate flowers and forgetting all kinds of etiquette by giving her a huge hug!

Trust us, when you watch the video (above), you'll tear up!

No doubt this brief but momentous visit is going to do wonders for this little girl's recovery! She's going to be braver and stronger than ever now! God bless her! And the same to Kate, for being so kind and generous with her time.

    Cancer is a man made disease to thin the herd.

    some post about Gaga's new outfit/hair gets loads of comments and this gets a couple?

    Yes, completely teared up over here…:) It's so nice to see that this young couple with all they have, still have such good hearts! Diana was such an influence on her son and he married a young woman with a heart and morals to match his own. Good show!

    Just beautiful! Whatever you believe in, please pray to it for the healing of this little girl and all who suffer! I can be really cynical, but this definitely made me tear up!

    I am also from Calgary Alberta, and I am pleased to say that I was able to see William and Catherina on several occasions! They truly are beautiful people. When I saw this news story I couldn't help but cry, this little girl is so brave and it is wonderful to see her wish come true. Diamond is an angel and a princess in her own right.

  14. 14

    That was really sweet. I just love William and Kate. They seem like such lovely people.

    sweet little soul. they should be medicating her with thc oil. it will alleviate her tumor and help cure her cancer. the world must change in order to save people with cancer. chemo only kills you.

    Re: bleahf – It was little Diamond's own Wish that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose to fulfill, through the Make-A-Wish foundation. Her mommy passed away from cancer when she was much tinier. If she doesn't make it, heaven forbid, she will have gotten her fondest wish. The Dad said this was a big, big win for the family and friends.
