On 28th February 2016 Emilia who is 11 years old had to face the ordeal of losing her right leg. The above knee amputation, plus 18 rounds of chemotherapy and 48 immunotherapy treatments were necessary to save her life after she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. Only 30 children a year in the UK are diagnosed with this form of bone cancer. Not all those with Osteosarcoma will require amputation but Emilia's tumour was more than 8 cm and this was her only option.
The NHS provide her with essential mobility aides, but to have the same options as any able bodied young person, she will need more than this, she will need a high functioning prosthetic (bionic) leg.
Her family, want Emilia to enter adulthood with the best possible prosthetic leg so that her limb difference makes minimal difference to her quality of life.
All the money raised will be given to the Fancy Footwork Trust, Emilia and her family, would like to take this opportunity in advance to thank everyone who bids on this bottling, and the final winning bidder enjoys the whisky.
