Prince William, Kate Middleton Found New Children's Cancer Research & Treatment Center

by at . Comments

The newly-married Prince William and Kate Middleton are always on the lookout for ways to help various charities, especially those involving children.

On Monday, the royal couple will open the new Oak Centre for Children and Young People at The Royal Marsden Hospital in Sutton, Surrey, England.

The children's unit will specialize in cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and education. William will unveil a plaque to officially open the children's center before he and Kate Middleton, both 29, meet hospital staff, key donors and fundraisers.

William was appointed President of The Royal Marsden Hospital in May 2007. The position was previously held by his mother, the late Princess Diana.

The facility is one of the largest comprehensive children's cancer centers in Europe, with 600 inpatients and more than 5,000 day patients every year.

Back in April, William and Kate asked their wedding guests to donate to the Royal Wedding Charitable Gift Fund in lieu of gifts. The guests obliged.

The donations all went to benefit 26 charities personally chosen by the duo.
