We can't help but blame ourselvesAfter getting discharged the parents noticed something was wrong and went to the hospital. The doctors noticed her liver is larger than it should be and said it is not harmful. They gave her medicines but...
“Doctor said she has enlarged liver and she will be fine but no, she is not fine,my child is dying. I wish I did something about that a year back, the situation would not have been this bad”- Sreekanth
It took an entire year to figure out that Mithulashree had a liver disease and needed a transplant. The thought kills the parents that their child would have not been in misery if they would have taken an action immediately.
“She didn’t grow,she didn’t walk,she didn’t put on any weight. So we were scared and went to the hospital where many tests were done...Now she might die if the treatment is not done”- Laxmi
It’s been days that she has slept peacefullyMithulashree has just started speaking but her broken words are not enough to explain to her mother, the pain she is going through. She keeps crying and it has been several days that she has slept peacefully. Her entire body itches very badly. No, it is not a normal itch. It is unbearable for the 2 year old. No ointment or lotion can soothe that - Laxmi has tried everything. Now the only way she can feel better is through a transplant.
“Her entire body itches so bad, she can’t stop scratching. There are marks all over her body. She scratches herself so badly that she starts bleeding,"- Laxmi
How can we afford the treatmentWhen the doctors said that the transplant will cost 16 lakhs, Sreekanth and Laxmi started working towards pooling that money somehow. They are not able to afford even the basic medicines any more. With each passing day,it is getting difficult for them.
“But it will never be enough to save her life. I am starting to lose hope now.I don't know how to protect her. ”- Sreekanth
Sreekanth and Laxmi are struggling to save their only child from failing liver. With your help, this child can have a normal life.
