On Friday 6 September, Princess Madeleine held an audience with Hélène Benno, Secretary General of the My Big Day foundation, at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.
After the meeting, The Princess said: "My Big Day is an organisation that I have great confidence in, and that really makes a difference for children and their families. Meeting Hélène today to discuss how the foundation will grow in the future was both enjoyable and rewarding." My Big Day is a fundraising organisation that helps seriously ill children to realise their dreams. Each year, hundreds of children in Sweden fall ill with diseases that have a serious impact on their lives, and these diseases can often be life-threatening. The foundation's goal is to give these children something to dream about on long days when they have to undergo tough treatment. Princess Madeleine has been patron of My Big Day since 2001.
