Most parents lead busy lives. They have the responsibilities of homes, children, families, and jobs to fulfill. Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge, is no less busy. Like most who aren’t royalty, Kate revealed in a letter in support of Children’s Hospice week that she enjoys the simple moments spending time playing with George and Charlette. Indeed, she showed just how much like the rest of us she really is.
Kate has been the Patron of East Anglia Children’s Hospice, (EACH), since 2012. The national initiative for this campaign was organized by the umbrella organization behind children’s palliative care in the U.K., Together for Short Lives, (TFSL). This year’s theme is Life’s Short.
Kate wrote: ‘For me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish,’ she said.
‘This Children’s Hospice Week, as patron of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, I am celebrating the remarkable and life-changing support provided by children’s hospices and palliative care charities across the UK.
‘They offer a lifeline to children and families facing the unimaginable.
‘The theme of Children’s Hospice Week this year is ”Life’s Short” and I am touched that children and young people are sharing what they love most in life and reminding us of how precious time is for everyone.’
This campaign runs until May 27th. ‘By supporting Children’s Hospice Week we can help them spread joy and positivity across the UK, encouraging everyone to make the most of moments that matter.
‘Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life, and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish.
‘I hope you will join me in supporting Children’s Hospice Week this year. Together we can champion the vital role that children’s hospices play in helping seriously ill children and families to have more precious moments.’
