Hi my name is Carmen Rodriguez and I just wanna ask for your help. It's not for me but for a friend in the Philippines. She is a really good friend of mine and since her child was diagnosed with his disease I've been helping them to the best possible way that I can. But this month I was not able to help them because I also had a problem. So I'm knocking into your kind heart to help this baby boy. Her baby Zane Franco was diagnosed with biliary Atresia when he was born. Biliary is a rare disease of the liver and bile ducts that occurs in infants. Symptoms of the disease appear or develop about two to eight weeks after birth. When a baby has biliary atresia, bile flow from the liver to the gallbladder is blocked. This causes the bile to be trapped inside the liver, quickly causing damage and scarring of the liver cells (cirrhosis), and eventually liver failure. He needs a liver transplant as soon as possible but it can only be done when they have the money in hand. He is a happy 17 month old baby who has a lot to experience in life. May god bless you all. Thank you.
