3-year-old Harith Does Not Eat Chocolates As They Can Kill Him

3-year-old Harith is the youngest and naughtiest in his family. He is cheerful and loved by everyone. He is waiting to go to school like his sister and brother. Little did he know that his life is not going to be normal like theirs. He is not aware that his life is at risk and only a transplant can save his life.

Harith is diagnosed with an end-stage liver disease

Harith was born perfectly well but he was very thin and did not gain weight for a long time. Worried parents, took him to hospital. He was given medicines after medicines to gain weight but it did not help him. It was only when he turned 1, his health deteriorated, multiple tests were taken and was diagnosed with the end-stage liver disease. His body cannot break down proteins and his liver does not function adequately.

The disease is worse than we could imagine. It leads to intense itching and easy bleeding, problems with memory and concentration. Ever since the diagnosis Harith's mother is strictly following all the instructions given by doctor religiously. Harith is not supposed to have any food that has protein content and absolute no to dairy products. He can have vegetables that have less protein.



Harith's family follow the same diet so that he does not feel left out

"It is difficult to follow such a strict diet with a 3-year-old child. I have never given him chocolates and ice creams. I do not allow him to see TV, I'm scared that he might ask for all those foods he sees in the ads. I do not allow him to play outside, even a small scar can make his condition worse.He is deprived of all the joys that a child should have at this age. It is painful to stop him from everything but I have no other choice. I want him to live." - Neha Patel.

Harith has an elder sister Bhuvisha (8), and a brother Dridesh (6).  They are too young to understand the condition of their brother but they cooperate so well with their mother. They do not ask for chocolates or any dairy products because they knew that their little brother cannot have it.


Neha spends all her time with him and makes sure he is happy

"My son is surviving only because of my wife, even doctors are surprised. Right from the quantity of water he must intake to the food he should take and the medicines are all taken care of her. Despite all this, she makes sure that my son is not sad, she spends all the time with her and keeps him happy." - Siddarth.

Only a liver transplant can save his life

When the complications grew, doctors in Bangalore referred them to Institute of Liver and Billary Sciences, Delhi. They take him to Delhi every month for the checkup. Doctors have told that only a transplant can save his life and it has to be done at the earliest. Fortunately, his mother is found to be matching donor and she is donating a part of her liver to save her son's life.

Father has exhausted all his savings

Siddharth runs a vegetable business and he earns a meagre income with which he has to support his family of five members. He has drained all his savings and has nothing left to sell. He has borrowed heavily for the medicines and for the frequent blood tests and scans.
