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.

Dear Supporters,

After a long and long waiting period, finally Chennai Global have decided to discharge us and we will be soon going back home with our cute, naughty and mastikhor Parth.

Today, Parth had his final meeting with surgeons, paediatricians, and dietician. They said we can take further treatment in Global hospitals, Mumbai and reports can be sent to Chennai for review, also will have to follow up with Global Hospitals, Chennai after six months.

Rushing home to pack our bags.

At the end, I would like to thank and salute each and every person who had helped us in whichever way possible to save our son from this critical situation. This example will surely make everyone believe that Humanity still exists.

Thanks once again from Yogesh, Prachi and Parth Rajwade

Hi all,

Parth is improving slowly, his reports are stable. He started having fever after two three major fever spikes, Doctors noticed fluid collection near liver in doppler. Since then Parth is on heavy antibiotics.He also undergone a procedure called aspiration in which doctors have removed fluid with the help of needle and tube.Currently, the tube is placed inside him to remove the fluid collection

He is not having fever now. Yesterday and today, they did few more tests, CT scans, doppler etc.

I will update you all with the reports soon. Doctors are saying that as it's a major surgery, some side effects are part and parcel of surgery.
Sorry once again for late update but it's being bit difficult to handle him and to post the updates timely.

Please keep praying for Parth.
