10.5 year old Emilee is suffering from a rare and aggresive cancer in the gynaecological system.

Emilee is a tough fighter, who was born at a weight of only 750 grams in Tel Hashomer's preemie unit, and despite her docters' expectations prevailed and survived.

In June 2010, when Emilee was in first grade at the Yovel school in Modiin, an aggresive cancerous growth, a germ cell, was found in Emilee's gynaecological system.

Emilee underwent a complex operation with complications, chemotherapy treatments to which the growth partially responded, and a bone marrow transplantion, but the cancerous cells refused to leave her body.

Thanks to the generous hearts of Modiin residents, and many good people from around the country, Emilee's parents were able to get funding for a series of treatments at a medical center in Germany, which brought the number of malignant cells to a minimal level, followed by a bone marrow transplant in Israel. To everyone's relief, Emilee's condition improved and she even started to go to school.

Unfortunately, Emilee's condition has worsened recently, and the cancerous cells in her body are developing quickly. This time too, her Kupat Cholim is, according to the family, refusing to fund the treatments that could save her life.

According to the recommendations of doctors in Israel and abroad, there are now two options for treating Emilee:

  1. Metronomic treatment including a cocktail of 5-6 drugs to prevent the growth from developing, and to get to a stage where an operation is possible, with a monthly cost of 100,000 ₪.
  2. An operation and treatments at the MD Anderson hospital, costing 500,000 USD.

Here are the details again for donating via Kav LeChaim:

  • By a deposit or bank transfer to Bank Hapoalim branch 532 account 501535 to Kav LeChaim for Emilee Amber.
  • By phone to 03-9250505.
  • By check sent to: Kav LeChaim for Emilee Amber, Rechov Gonen 15, Petach Tikva, 49170.

In addition, it is also possible to encourage the children of the city to write, draw and give Emilee and her family the attention and strength they need so badly during this difficult time.
