2-year-old Will Scratch Himself To Death Without Liver Transplant

“He is always itching himself, sometimes when he gets rashes on his back and can’t reach, he rubs himself against the walls till he bleeds and cries. It is painful to see our little boy go through such agony all the time.”

Bhargav has a swollen stomach and constant rashes due to his liver disorder

2-year-old Bhargav has a rare liver disease which has caused his stomach to swell and bloat, as well as gives him skin rashes and itching. He can’t stop scratching himself, and no matter how much he does, the itchiness of his skin doesn’t go away. Often Bhargav is found crying and screaming because of his itchy skin.

“Our baby had a problem of diarrhea since he was a baby. We thought it was jaundice, but when we took him to the local hospital, they told us to take him to Hyderabad. That is when we knew something was seriously wrong with him.”

Nagalakshmi often breaks down seeing her son’s condition

Naresh and Nagalakshmi were happy about starting their journey of parenthood. But their happiness at their son’s birth was very short lived since they had to start running around hospitals and doctors almost as soon as he was born. His pain has given his parents sleepless nights. He tosses and turns and starts crying because nothing relieves him of the irritation and pain. Seeing him suffer, his mother Nagalakshmi often breaks down crying.

Medication stopped working on him and he doesn’t have very long if he doesn’t get a transplant

For his condition, he has been on constant medication for over 2 years now. Initially, he started recovering, but soon his condition started to worsen again and the doctors told his parents that a liver transplant is the only way to cure him. He needs a transplant within a month in order to survive.

"We don’t know why God had to punish our little boy and us this way. What did he ever do to deserve this? Sometimes when we close our eyes to take a short nap, we are awakened by his wailing. Sometimes he scratches himself so violently that we are scared his skin might come off.”



“The doctors tell us we need to do the surgery soon to save him, but we don’t have any money at all. All my earnings go towards his treatment. Even for basic expenses like food, we have to depend on my relatives to loan us some money.”


How you can help

Naresh works as a daily wage laborer for a meager salary. He has spent over Rs 4 lakhs towards his son’s treatment already, by spending all his money and borrowing from his relatives and friends too. Now all his sources have run dry and he has no means to fund his son’s treatment. In order to save Bhargav, his family needs a hefty amount of Rs 16 lakhs which is beyond their capacity.

Dear Supporters,

We are very grateful for all your love and support.

Here is a quick update about Bhargav's health. He is currently at home and is undergoing regular checkups. He is responding well to his treatments but sometimes his jaundice rate goes high.

We are waiting for the tests to get completed so that the doctors can suggest a date for liver transplant.
