Little Dharini Is Already Fighting Death At 7. She Deserves A Chance To Live.

If you see Dharini's bright smile and big, happy eyes, you can hardly tell that this 7-year-old is inching closer to death with every breath. She needs a Liver Transplant urgently to survive.
 
For 7 years now, Dharini's liver has been dying. Every day she has been taking medicines which are not the cure but just like a rope that keep her tied to life. keep her tied to life. Now her condition has turned critical and Dharini's only chance for survival is a liver transplant.
My name is Harish. I'm an LIC agent from Ahmedabad. My wife Vanita and I were overjoyed when our daughter was born 7 years ago. She was all we ever dreamed of. She was perfect. 6 months passed and suddenly things took a turn.

And then the perfect life began to fall apart.

She began to fall sick frequently. The symptoms seemed like she has jaundice. The doctor confirmed this. Although she was treated, we could never figure out what the root cause was.
At 1, Dharini had a biopsy that confirmed that she had a liver disease. Ever since she has been on medication. At 2, they ran another biopsy. Her liver was deteriorating rapidly. At this time, she was having trouble with digestion. The condition began affecting other organs. The doctor told us that Dharini would need a liver transplant. However, we got differing opinions, and we stuck to medical management.

When reality hit like a nightmare

As the years went by, her symptoms also worsened. Like I said, the medicines are only keeping the disease at bay. Eventually, the disease began to challenge her will. Dharini is going to school, but every other day she was sent home because she had a fever. She loves playing with her friends. She loves school. She is cheerful and active, but when her stomach hurts, our child completely curls up on the bed unable to move.

She is unable to do the things she loves because the organ that keeps us all alive is taking her life. In fact, right now, Dharini's condition has worsened. She is unable to eat properly or digest food. She has frequent diarrhea and it tires her throughout the day. My daughter was in 2nd standard, and she had to drop out because her battle against this disease just took over the rest of her life.
So far, we have spent over Rs. 5 lakhs on her treatment this year. Her stomach bloats up, she needs hospitalization, her metabolism is off balance. She has to go to the bathroom over 3 times if she eats something. Dharini is now anemic. Her condition is more critical than ever.

She will not live unless she gets the transplant we cannot afford.

My wife is a match to donate a liver, but we cannot afford the transplant which costs around Rs. 22 Lakhs including pre-operation evaluation and post-operation charges. I make around Rs. 10,000/month. With my savings, help from friends and relatives, and a personal loan, I was able to pool in the Rs. 5 Lakhs for her treatment so far. Now, I managed to arrange only Rs. 4 Lakhs and need help for Rs. 18 Lakhs.
I had never thought I would feel this helpless. Here, I'm watching her die everyday, slowly and painfully: unable to do anything about it.
