Dreams are the stuff that hope is made of
Guest Blog by Ednin Hamzah, CEO/Medical Director Hospis Malaysia
Dreams are the stuff that hope is made of. And talking to the children that we are involved with gives us an insight into the dreams that they have. In listening to Linges as she relates her hopes and dreams, her eyes brightened as she perceives a better future despite her illness.
In developing a paediatric palliative care service to support Linges and the other children with life limiting illness, having others to support the work can make a huge difference.
Childrens Hospice Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge Advocates for Hospis Malaysia
The visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Malaysia in 2012 inspired children such as Linges that their dreams can come true. For palliative care advocates it was an affirmation that the suffering of children needs to be highlighted to the world. The effects of the visit has continued to be an encouragement for many others since then to come forward to assist other children in need through paediatric palliative care, in Malaysia and elsewhere.
