Divya was all set to start class 1 when her condition began deterioratingDivya’s liver disease was diagnosed two years ago, however, with medication she was able to live a relatively normal childhood. Her days always went the same way – she would wake up early in the morning to get ready, her father would then drop her to school on the way to the market and once she was back home and had finished her homework, she would fall asleep to her grandmother’s stories.
“However, since last November, her hands, legs and stomach have been swelling up often. They told us it was because her liver was failing. She had gotten admission into a school for class 1, and was very excited too. But she just didn’t get better. Last week, she was so sick that she was in the ICU for 4 days.” – Radha, mother
