Princess Diana and the Causes Close to Her Heart

The people's Princess, who would have been 54 today, championed many causes – and touched countless lives

Lahore, Pakistan

The Princess reaches out to a young cancer patient while visiting Pakistan in February 1996. Cancer charities were special to Diana, who once remarked, "I would suggest that now might be a good time to consider another 'C' word which may threaten us. It is the word 'complacency' [in the fight against cancer]."
