God bedring Magnus - Get better, Magnus.
Written by Ken Richter.
Ten year old Magnus got a royal encouragement in the middle of a hard time. The young lad has leukemia and the treatment drains him of all strenght. But a friendly handshake and a couple of loving words from a compassionate Crown Princess Mary gave Magnus some new energy.
In the same way other children with serious and longlasting deceases got a new hope by being with the royal guest, who opened the Tryg Foundation Family House (*) at Skejby Sygehus in Aarhus. (**)
- "It's such a fantastic offer for families stricken by illness. The family house gives them the opportunity to stick together during a difficult time", said Crown Princess Mary after the tour of the modern house where there to start with is room for twelve sick children and their families.
Prior to that Mary, along with children and parents, had seen a part of the show in Denmarks smallest circus, Cirkus Krone, which had erected it's tent in the backyard. Magnus missed that part of the schedule for the day because he due to risk of infections is not allowed in larger gatherings. On the other had is older sister Cecilie aged thirteen could tell her brother, what had happened in the circus ring. The two siblings are used to helping each other that way.
- "Cecilie has also had leukemia and she was only cured four years ago, where bone marrow was transplanted from Magnus to her. It is therefore extra unfortunate that Magnus now also have the decease", explains the father of the two siblings, Michael Nielsen from Randers. (***) The illfated family has as one of the first lived for now three weeks in the new family house while Magnus is committed.
- "It calms things down and it's also god for the patient", says Michael, who together with his wife also have a set of twins to consider.
During her tour of the modern family house Mary dropped in at the Zimahoff family from the Faroe Islands, here it's little Lukas aged four who have been through a complicated surgery to his bladder.
- "Thanks for letting me come visiting and I hope you are well", Mary told the littel brave fellow and his family consiting of the parents Anna Maria and Carsten as well as big brother Aron aged seven.
Without any fuss the guest of honor for the day and the Faroese family had a cosy chat about everyday life in the family house and about the beautiful nature on the Faroe Islands, which Mary called "Utterly fantastic" after having visited the islands far to the north.
- "It was an experience for life for all four of us to have the Crown Princess as a visitor", said the family after the grand visit.
- Mary got help from a number of very neatly dressed little girls, when she cut the ribbon to the house.
She also greeted seventeen year old Ditte Marie Juul, who is suffering from a heart decease and a special blood decease and for her it was a big moment to talk to Mary.
(*) Tryg is an insurance company.
(**) Also known as Aarhus University Hospital. It's actually a hospital town of around 20.000 patients and employees when it's completed in a couple of years. Located at the outskirts of the city of Aarhus.
Rigshospitalet is basically the national hospital for eastern Denmark, and some special fields, while Skejby Sygehus covers western DK.
(***) A large town north of Aarhus.
From the link:
When Mary got out of the car a female hospital clown exclaimed: "She's the best looking in the WORLD"!
The patients, all children, were also out to meet Mary, who took her time chatting to the children.
The Zimakoff dad from the Faroe Islands said afterwards: "It gives you a huge freedom, when you have a child committed at the hospital, that you can still be together as a family. We have a base here and (we) can get some air/space.
I'm a big fan of the DRF, so it was abig experience to meet her. She was very sincere and present, at was wonderful to feel".

And big pictures.
The hospital clown appears to be a ginormous fan of Mary, in the clip she is saying: "Maybe I'll faint" and turning to a man behind her she continues: "If I faint, will you catch me"?
