Prince Harry Pays a Special Visit to Child Siblings Battling Same Terminal Illness


The more you hear about Prince Harry, the more you fall in love. The prince recently reunited with Ollie Carroll, a six-year-old terminally ill child he met last year, and spent time in a hospital with both him and his little sister, Amelia Carroll. Both suffer from the rare and incurable Batten disease, a genetic childhood nervous system disorder that eventually renders patients unable to walk, see, eat or breathe. Most do not live past age 12. The kids' two older brothers were tested for it and do not have it. Harry had met Ollie at the WellChild Awards last October, where he and other ill children were honored. Ollie, who has lost the ability to stand on his own, mustered the strength to give the prince a big hug. His mother and Harry later corresponded via mail.
