For the first time I wanted to be wrong but my fears came trueIn the month of August, 10-year-old Smilee suffered from Jaundice which refused to go away. Her body started turning pale and her eyes deep yellow. Being a doctor herself, Manisha, Smilee’s mother knew that something was very wrong.
“It kept going on for almost a month and looking at her symptoms I was afraid it was a serious problem. For the first time in my life, I wanted to be wrong, I wanted my child to be absolutely well but my fears came true. She was diagnosed with chronic liver disease!” – Manisha
Without an urgent transplant, she won’t surviveSmilee’s liver is failing and only a liver transplant can save her life. Her stomach and feet are swollen badly. Due to fluid accumulation around her liver, it hurts her too. She finds it difficult to sleep at night and stays irritated all day. However, the little girl is very brave. She knows she is sick so she does her best to get better. She wants to go back home to her sister and her normal life.
“Even if I am not around, my daughter takes her medicines on time. She sometimes cries in silence wanting all of this to end and watching her like that breaks my heart. She doesn’t deserve this...no child deserves this. She needs an urgent transplant to survive but we are failing to afford it.” - Manisha
