Kate Middleton Sends Leukemia Patient Hope In Personal Letter

Kate Middleton cancer letter

We can't imagine how happy Kate Middleton made 9-year-old leukemia patient Fabian Bate when she sent him a personalized letter, complete with St. James Palace letterhead.

The Duchess of Cambridge met the young boy while visiting the children's cancer center at the Royal Marsden Hospital, for which Prince William is serving as president.

In the letter the boy's family received last Friday, she praised his "belief and positive energy" and wrote:

"I was so touched by your strength of character. I will keep my fingers crossed that your health goes from strength to strength."

Kate's kind gesture proved words really can do wonders. The Bate family called the letter "a massive boost" to their morale which has diminished while watching Fabian battle the illness, saying:

"This is something to talk about with our family and friends. It's a real morale booster and it was really quite personalized to him and he has something to cherish for years to come."

The message of hope have come just in time for Fabian too.

He was first diagnosed with leukemia in 2006, but relapsed earlier this year and is awaiting test results that will determine whether he is able to receive a bone marrow transplant from one of his sisters.

We can't begin to imagine how tough this unfortunate situation is for Fabian and his family, but we wish them all the best as they continue to battle the life threatening illness.
