Help Parth To Get a Liver Transplant

Why am I fundraising?
I am Prachi Y. Rajwade. My 7-month-old son Parth is fighting with chronic liver disease called Liver Cirrhosis caused due to biliary atresia. He has undergone a surgery (Kasai Procedure) at the age of 2.5 months, but unfortunately surgery did not help and was termed a failure. Parth is a young fighter with a strong will power but his liver now needs a transplant as early as possible.

About Parth
Parth was born in 8th month of pregnancy. Even being a pre-mature, he seemed to be healthy at the time of birth with 2.9 kg of weight. One month later, we observed that his eyes were yellow and were showing symptoms of jaundice. Soon he was diagnosed with rare liver condition called biliary atresia. Doctors then suggested a surgery called Kasai procedure. But unfortunately, four months after surgery doctors observed that the operation did not help, so Parth needs to undergo liver transplant.

He is at home in Dombivli and having treatment in Global Hospitals, Mumbai (Liver OPD). His UHID No. is: 105085014.

What is Biliary Atresia?
Biliary atresia, also known as extrahepatic ductopenia, progressive obliterative cholangiopathy is a childhood disease of the liver in which one or more bile ducts are abnormally narrow, blocked, or absent. It can be congenital or acquired. As a birth defect in newborn infants, it has an incidence of one in 10,000–15,000 live births in the United States, and a prevalence of one in 16,700 in the British Isles. The causes of biliary atresia are not well understood. The only effective treatments are surgeries such as the Kasai procedure and liver transplantation. (Source: Wikipedia)

What do I plan to do with the funds?
Parth's Hospital (Global Hospitals, Parel,Mumbai) has provided the following breakdown for the funds:



Post Liver Transplant he will need lifelong immune suppression and follow up with Global Hospital Mumbai Team. His Medical expenses in first three months will be 30,000/month, then 15,000/month till one year and later 10,000/month in 2nd year.

Parth has been bravely battling his life-threatening liver ailment. We now need your support. The target has been set to cover, transplant and post-transplant care for 2 years including medications. A small contribution can go a long way to help Master Parth to survive and have a healthy life.

Hello All,

Parth is doing well.

As said earlier Parth’s father visited Chennai this week for finalizing documentation, accommodation arrangements and date of surgery.

Our Liver Transplant surgery procedures are almost completed. Transplant coordinator from Global Hospitals, Chennai have suggested few changes in documentation, also few tests to be done just before surgery. We will complete the documentation by this week and as suggested our transplant coordinator, we will be travelling to Chennai by 25th of February for surgery.

Things are bit delayed as Parth was not keeping well and few work up test cannot be perform while having any kind of infection.

I will keep posting the updates timely.

Thanks once again for your help, support and prayers for Parth and our family.

Regards,
Prachi Y. Rajwade.
