Pink Saturday - July 9

I would like you to meet Diamond Marshall.

Diamond is 6 years old and lives in Calgary, Canada. In December she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Sarcoma. Since then Diamond has had two life-saving surgeries and has spent nearly a month in intensive care.

Diamond watched the Royal Wedding from her hospital bed. She said her biggest wish was to meet a real princess one day. She wrote the Duchess of Cambridge a note. That's when the

went to work.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Calgary on Thursday.

Diamond ran up to the Duchess and thrust a handmade gift and flowers at her.

And then Diamond ran back to the safety of her stepmother's arms.

The Duchess coaxed her back and after a small chat

they gave each other a hug.

(pass the kleenex please)

Thank you Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturdays.
