Top Story

Coldplay Makes-A-Wish Come True

18-year-old Amber suffers from Crohn’s Disease, and said she wanted to meet the band because “…their music helped me get through a lot of questionable and hard times and inspired my artwork. When I listen to their albums my emotions, thoughts and worries escape, helping me keep a positive outlook on life.”
From "Amber’s Dad died when she was nine and, not surprisingly, she found it very difficult to deal with. In March 2011, she started feeling very sick and lost a lot of weight. She went to her GP who said her Haemoglobin levels were very low and that she needed to go to hospital for a blood transfusion.
“One day she was in the car with her Mum when Coldplay’s ‘The Scientist’ came on. The lyrics hypnotised her and she felt an immediate connection with the band because their words explained how she felt. Amber told us ‘I want to meet Chris, John, Guy and Will to say thank you – if it wasn’t for them I don’t think I would be the person I am today. I have a passion for what they do; they’re amazing and even though they might think that what they do and who they are have no effect on people’s lives, they are wrong because they affected my life in a positive way and I am grateful to them for this.’
“During the wish Coldplay gave Amber a bag of goodies and Chris dedicated a song to Amber (‘Fix You’).
“Afterwards, Amber told us: ‘Meeting Coldplay was more than I imagined. They were so funny and down-to-earth and it felt like I was meeting up with close friends. ’Thank you’ doesn’t expresses how thankful and grateful I am towards Make-A-Wish for making my wish come true’.”
