Yesterday (August 31), Tahoora was rushed to the hospital in the night because she couldn't breathe. Her father was away on an outstation delivery. Her mother Talha had to call her neighbour and request help taking them to the hospital for help reviving Tahoora.
They made it just in time and Tahoora is now on ventilator support. But her condition is so bad that the doctors have given her parents time – the next few days. If her liver transplant is done in that time, she will be able to recover from the damage her body has suffered this far.
In the nine months that she has lived, her life has been painful and filled with suffering for the last 7 months. Diagnosed with jaundice when she was just 2-months-old, Tahoora has never recovered. Her parents are running from pillar to post trying to save her but it is becoming difficult for them.
“The doctor has said that we will need about 18 lakhs for the procedure. I have a few possessions – my bike, a few electronic gadgets, but even if I sell it all we will not be able to raise enough money to get a liver transplant. Nothing I can do will give me enough to save my baby,” says Shabhir.
Tahoora is also noticeably changing because of her sickness. “She used to play, move her hands and legs, sometimes laugh and scream. The last one month, she just lays there – too tired to even cry. Her stomach is swollen, bigger than her small, frail body,” Shabhir says.
Tahoora is Shabhir and Talha's dream – a daughter who would complete their family. Losing Tahoora would break their heart. Our support will help this special baby survive the terrible condition she has been fighting almost all her life.
