Cwm Taf University Health Board has worked in partnership with the charity 2 Wish Upon A Star to open a family room for bereaved parents at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in Llantrisant.
Macmillan Cancer Support and Cwm Taf University Health Board are planning to build a new £6.75m specialist care unit near Llantrisant.
The charity and the health board have applied for planning permission to develop the state-of-the-art unit at Royal Glamorgan Hospital.
If the plans are approved, Macmillan would contribute £5m towards the unit making it their biggest single investment in Wales.
Almost £700 000 of Welsh Government funding has been announced by Health Secretary Vaughan Gething for a new 24 hour helipad and associated developments at Prince Charles hospital in Merthyr Tydfil.
If you are living in Rhondda Cynon Taf or Merthyr area, last Friday 14th October you would have seen something turn pink!
