Weaver Has 1 Day To Save His 7-year-old From Liver Failure

“Doctors told us his liver is completely damaged and he can hardly survive a day without a liver transplant. He is in the ICU, fighting every passing minute to live and I'm just watching helplessly. I don't know what I can do in a day's time. I have begged everyone I know. Even if I work my whole life, I'll not be able to make this huge amount. If I can't save my son, I will never be able to forgive myself."- Nageswar, Father of 7-year-old Govind.

Nageswar is a weaver from Singarayapalem, a small village in Andhra Pradesh. 3 days ago, he learned that his 7-year-old son Govind was in the final stages of liver disease. Since then, he has been trying to arrange for a liver transplant for his son, knowing that every day he loses risks his child's life.

Govind is in the ICU so his condition is stable until he can get a liver transplant

For the last one month, Govind has not been himself. His parents noticed that he got angry quickly and forgot things. It has been a week since Govind was diagnosed with Wilson's disease. It is a condition where the body is unable to get rid of copper and it accumulates in the organs. In Govind's case, the accumulated copper has completely damaged his liver.



“He had jaundice. He got treated for a month but instead of getting better, he got worse. He fell down, and even after falling could not lift his head. He was so irritable, he didn't even let us hold his hand. Our doctor told us to bring him to Hyderabad, and here, they said he needed an immediate liver transplant.” – Nageswar.

Govind and his twin have the same disease and they can both be saved

“It is a sorrow that can't be described in words. Both our children, for whom we live, have a serious disease from birth. Without us knowing, it completely damaged Govind's liver and he is in the last stage. His mother and I got tested and she is a match to be a donor. Somehow, I keep repeating to myself, I have to save my child.” – Nageswar.

Govind is in this critical stage of the disease, while his brother Siva Ganesan is still in nascent stages. His mother is ready to give a part of her own liver to save him. The only reason Govind's life is still in danger is that Nageswar cannot afford the treatment.


Govind's mother is a suitable donor and will donate a part of her liver for the transplant

How you can help

Nageswar and his wife are both weavers who weave cotton sarees. Together their work brings them an income of Rs 3,000 a month. In the last three days, Nageswar has borrowed over Rs 2 lakhs to complete different tests. With Govind in the ICU, the costs have crossed more than Nageswar can afford. This father needs immediate support to save his son.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your love and support. This wouldn't have been possible without you.

It gives us immense pleasure in informing you all that Govind had a successful liver transplant. He is currently in the ICU and the doctors have told us that he is recovering slowly. The mother was identified as the donor. She is also doing well now. She is likely to get shifted to the ward soon.

We are all hopeful about their recovery. Please keep praying for them. We shall keep you posted.

Regards,
Jayalakshmi
