Amber lost her battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) at just 18 months old.
She brought happiness to all she met and has become an inspiration to many as she enjoyed life with a smile on her face right to the very end.
The Amber Phillpott Trust will celebrate her short life by raising as much money as possible for front line AML research.

Amber Phillpott was born on September 5th 2009 as second daughter to James Phillpott and Fleur Tinson. Initially she appeared to be a normal, happy and very intelligent child but in October 2010 she suffered a minor stroke which led to admission to the children’s oncology ward in the John Radcliffe children’s hospital. There she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) which led to chemotherapy treatment. Initially she responded well and was allowed home for a few days at Christmas with a short remission. By the New Year her condition had worsened and her only chance was to have a bone marrow transplant. Throughout all of this time her parents were with her, day and night. In February 2011 the John Radcliffe ran out of treatment options but there was an experimental drug available in Bristol so she was transferred there together with her parents. The drug treatment did not work and she developed a leukemic mass in her brain and was given no chance of survival but was transferred back to Oxford where she died five days later in the arms of her parents on March 5th 2011.

A charity has been set up in Ambers name. The objectives of the charity are:
We are the only UK charity dedicated solely to supporting the development of better treatments and raising awareness of this rare form of childhood leukaemia which currently has a survival rate of less than 7 in 10. Your money will provide financial assistance to carefully chosen initiatives working to:
i) Develop better treatments for AML
ii) Find a cure
iii) Raise public awareness of AML
The Trust has very low administration costs so we can ensure that almost all of your donation will go directly to front line initiatives.
Approximately 80 children in the UK are affected by AML each year. With your help we aim to make this rare form of leukaemia a thing of the past so that other children do not have to suffer in the same way as Amber.
