Diagnosed with severe liver disease5-year-old Pushkar is suffering from a rare disease, Biliary Atresia. Bile gets trapped inside the liver, damaging and scarring liver cells and eventually leading to liver failure.
“He was just 1 month when I noticed that his eyes turned deep yellow; I suspected it to be jaundice and immediately took him to the hospital. But what I heard next shook me to the core. My child had a liver disease and he needed immediate surgery.” -Chandresh
Medicines can't keep him alive anymore, he needs a transplantBy the time Pushkar underwent surgery, his liver was damaged beyond repair. He needed a liver transplant to survive, but it was only possible after turned 5, so they waited. Although medicines kept him alive all this while, they couldn’t stop the recurring infections and complications.
“We had to be very cautious about his health. He suffered from recurring fever, infections and sometimes even vomited blood. Because of this fear, we couldn’t give him a normal childhood. We kept him at home most of the time and rarely took him out. We lived in constant fear of losing him. But now, precautions can’t save him, neither can the medicines, he needs an urgent transplant.” - Puja
