8-month-old Sushanth cannot express how much he is hurting, so he just cries in pain. His parents helplessly make efforts to distract him, or to somehow make him smile, but the pain is intolerable.
Sushanth's eyes were yellow, but they never guessed what that could mean:
Due to their inter-caste marriage, Manoj and Priyadarshini do not have the support of their families, but they were as excited as any new parents would be. Their first child promised to fill their lives with the warmth and love of a complete family. Since the very start Sushanth's eyes were slightly yellow, but the poor couple had never imagined what this could mean.
"We did notice it, especially when it became more prominent, but everyone said that this was all right. Since this is our first baby, we did not really know the right things to do. We live in a very small village, and do not have big hospitals and doctors there. A local doctor also told us this was nothing to worry about. In his third month, when we took him to a bigger hospital, we were first told there was something serious to worry about."
Why you should help:
Manoj has been found to be the perfect match for a transplant, but he cannot afford the surgery.
"Not just my liver, I would give my baby my life; if only I had the means to save him," Manoj would give anything to save his 8-month-old baby's life.
Manoj wants nothing as much as to save his first-born. You can save baby Sushanth's life.
