"My daughter will have 0% chance of survival without a liver transplant. She hasn't lived 5 or 50 years for us to consider other options. No. She is 5 months old, and she has been suffering every day."It struck these parents odd when their baby girl had jaundice for over 2 months despite treatment. Their world shattered when they learned she had a chronic liver problem. Benakashree needs a liver transplant urgently, otherwise, it would be very difficult to save her life.
"When she was around 1 month old, Benaka got jaundice. It is common for babies her age, and we took great care. Even after 1 month of treatment, her symptoms did not reduce and that is not normal. We took her to a local hospital and there they diagnosed her of a liver problem. When she was around 2 and half months of age, she had a gall bladder surgery, but it did not help."
"Her body has turned completely yellow. She cannot digest the milk she feeds on, and her stool is white in color when it has to be yellow. She is not putting on any weight. This worries us. We keep watching her like a hawk because the doctor has given us signs to look for - signs that would tell us that her condition is deteriorating."
"We are extremely stressed thinking about her survival, and the only thing keeping us going is her smile. Despite what she is going through, she is active. She is smiling all the time, kicking around. Once they bring in those injections and start poking at her when she gets worse, then we will lose that smile. I know every parent would say it, but I want my daughter to stay alive. 5 months? That's not a life."
