DIANA VISITS THE ROYAL BROMPTON HOSPITAL
A very slim DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES visited the Royal Brompton Hospital, London today to meet young sufferers of the inherited disease Cystic Fibrosis. The disease, caused by a single defective gene, leaves the sufferers unable to breathe freely or to digest their food, resulting in extreme damage to their lungs and stomach. In the UK, around three people each week die from Cystic Fibrosis and there is no cure. PRINCESS DIANA lost a close friend to the disease in September last year – a 29 year old Greek lawyer, Yannis Kaliviotis, who died at the Royal Brompton Hospital while waiting for life-saving donor organs for a heart/lung transplant. DIANA looked very slim and still tanned after her holiday in Barbuda with her two sons, William and Harry.
