This 7 Months Old Is At The Brink Of Death Only A Liver Transplant Can Save Him

Srinivas and Ravali were filled with joy as they introduced a new member to the family, a baby boy. It was a moment of pure happiness and everyone was congratulating the couple but the joy didn't last long. It wasn't even a week and the parents had to rush their child to the hospital as they noticed there was something wrong with their baby. 


A Surgery within 45 days of birth

He had jaundice, his eyes and skin turned yellow. Although the local doctors said it is normal and that it would get better with time, the parents couldn't agree on it as they saw his stomach was swollen abnormally. After several tests, the parents found out that the baby's liver was dysfunctional and he needed immediate surgery.

"He was just 45 days old when he had his first surgery. I thought we found the cure to his illness, I thought that my son can now live a happy normal life but no, just within 2 weeks of the surgery, we found out that it didn't work." -Ravali, mother

Only a liver transplant can save her

He suffers from biliary atresia, a chronic liver disease in which the bile ducts become inflamed and blocked soon after birth. His liver is severely damaged and only a liver transplant can save his life.

"He is just a baby, he shouldn't be going through any of this. I can't help but wonder how painful it must be for him. He cries so much that his eyes are always swollen, he hardly gets any sleep. He is a brave child, he kept fighting for so long but the doctor said that we cannot delay any longer, he needs the liver transplant now.” –Ravali

This farmer struggled to get every rupee together but it is not enough

" It's been months since he got diagnosed and still we are nowhere close to arranging the money needed for the treatment. I am just a farmer. I earn once a year and that too just enough to put the food on the table. It is getting harder each day, we are unable to afford even the medicines that kept our child alive till now. I fear losing him, I don't know what to do or where to go. My son is on the brink of death and I’m unable to save him. I feel completely helpless!" -Srinivas
