“When my baby smiles I forget my tiresome day but that day I saw him all blue and.. and his body was burning. I was so scared.”- PintuThey rushed him to the local hospital in Tripura but his condition did not get any better. They were asked to go to Kolkata where they found out that his liver is not functioning.
They travelled 3000 km to save their baby but…
“The doctors in Kolkata said we have to take him to Hyderabad where he will get cured, but when we reached there, the cost of the treatment was so much that we had to bring him back.”- Seema
Initial tests were done and medicines were given but there was no sign of him getting cured.Only a liver transplant can save this child which the parents can't afford that. They now came back to Tripura and Priyangshu is getting weak with each passing day. His body is yellow and so are the whites of his eye.
We have a donor but still we will lose our child…Priyangshu’s grandfather is a match who is ready to save his grandson though he fears the surgery.They have only a month to get the life saving transplant. But they are slowly losing hope because for them 18 lakhs is an impossible amount to arrange.
“I earn Rs 10,000... I can barely manage to buy the medicines needed to keep him alive till the transplant. He is my only child…I tried asking everyone but no one is able to help. What should I do, I am helpless. In one month my baby might…”- Pintu
What will happen if they can’t afford the transplant?Priyangshu is suffering from a rare disease,Biliary Atresia.This causes the bile juice to be trapped inside the liver, quickly causing damage and scarring of the liver cells and eventually liver failure.
“The doctor says, baby’s bad blood is mixing with the good one and soon brain infection will also come...I don’t know what will happen.I don't want to lose him”- Seema
Due to poor financial conditions,this family will lose their child. Your little contribution can save this baby from a deadly disease and help him live a happy life.
