A year back 2-year-old Sriesha was diagnosed with Decompensated liver cirrhosis which is end-stage Liver failure and is in a very critical state.
She has been now advised to urgently undergo a liver transplant and her mother, Aruna, has agreed to donate a part of her liver. Aruna, who is now scared to lose her daughter is ready to do everything it takes to save her.
Sriesha with her mother in the hospital
“She just began to call me ‘amma’ but suddenly she stopped uttering any words and she cannot walk. It is heartbreaking to see my child in such a terrible situation. I don’t know what it is meant to donate a part of liver but I’m willing to do anything to save her life”9
Every now and then, a large amount of fluid is taken out from Sriesha’s stomach. The little one’s stomach is bloated too heavily that she can hardly walk. She has lost her weight completely and looks like a bag of bones with a bloated stomach. She stopped uttering any words and she expresses only through her actions. Doctors said that she’ll be able to talk and walk after the liver transplantation.
Unfortunately, Aruna or her family do not have the funds required to pay for the liver transplant. She is worried that if she does not find the funds she may lose her daughter.
They moved to Kerala from their village for the treatment
There aren’t any facilities in the village they live. Relatives suggested to take her to Chennai but it was during the time of floods. So they decided to initiate the treatment in Kerala. Her parents did not give a second thought about the expense, about the difficulties in managing in a new place, they were determined to save her life by any means.
How You Can Help
Sriesha’s father is the only breadwinner in the family. He has asked everyone he knew to pay for the treatment. He spends Rs 20,000 for her medicines alone. He struggles every day to meet the other basic expenses like food and rent. They need Rs 12.5 lakhs for the surgery. Liver transplantation can save her life but they cannot afford it. Your contributions can save her life.
100% of funds raised will be transferred towards Sriesha's treatment. Every contribution will be matched to raise funds faster and help little Sriesha.
