These parents are in a race against time to save their 3-year-old

“Your son has end-stage liver disease. Without a liver transplant surgery, he will die.”

Satish and Divya could only hold onto each other as they tried to process what their doctor was telling them. They had been dreading these words for so long, but having known it was a possibility did not make it any easier for these young parents to accept the fact that they may lose their baby in a few weeks. 



Two years ago they had noticed that Gautam’s stomach was starting to swell whenever he ate. What was supposed to be a simple check-up at a local clinic had led to the discovery that there was something very wrong with their son’s liver. The doctors had said he needed urgent and frequent care, without which a liver transplant would be the only way to save his life. Since then these parents have been running from doctor to doctor, hospital to hospital, trying to get their son the best care they could afford. 



“We have been to more than 10 doctors, in 4 different cities, hoping they could cure my son without surgery because we are afraid to put him through it. Even if we wanted to, we just could not afford it.”  - Satish, father

But their worst nightmare has come true. Their son needs a transplant surgery at the earliest, before his liver shuts down entirely


“I will happily give my own liver to save his life. But what good is it if we can’t pay for the surgery? We need a miracle.”  - Divya, mother

Divya has been receiving psychological counselling to help her cope with her reality, and to prepare for the worst if it comes to that. In this time of distress, you can be her miracle.



Donate whatever you can, and help save baby Gautam’s life.
