THE STORY:

Devastating news: On August 29, 2014, little Albert lost his battle with biliary atresia. After receiving a liver transplant in April 2014,  Albert began to suffer from problems stemming from his new liver. It became clear that Albert would need yet another liver transplant in order to survive. Sadly, a new liver was not found in time, and Albert passed away.

Thanks to everyone that donated to help Albert. We would like to keep this fundraiser running as a memorial to Albert, and to keep raising funds to help New Day Foster Home continue to provide medical care for orphans in China.

 

**UPDATE** The evening of April 14th New Day Foster Home received a call from the hospital saying a liver was available, and that night Albert went into surgery and had the liver transplant he desperately needed. Unfortunately, however, problems developed in Albert's new liver, including the development of several pockets of bile. Two drains were inserted to remove the bile. Although this method has appeared to work thus far, Albert will still need to be closely monitored, and will require considerable post-surgery care.

Let's help New Day Foster Home cover the cost of Albert's surgery and for his post-surgery care!

Meet Albert, a chubby-cheeked, one-year-old orphan with a big smile that just melts your heart. Albert celebrated his first birthday on December 19th, but unless we help him, Albert won't survive to celebrate his second birthday.

This sweet baby boy was abandoned on a village street in China when he was only three months old. He was born with severe GI defect called Biliary Atresia, which affects his liver. His little belly is distended, and his big, bright eyes are yellow with jaundice. If he doesn’t get a liver transplant soon, he won’t make it. Surgery is expensive, but without surgery, Albert will die.

Albert is an orphan. He has no family. He has no voice. Albert needs you to be his family, to be his voice. We want so badly for Albert to get this surgery, so he can be adopted by a loving family and live a long, happy life. Maybe he’ll grow up to be a doctor, or an astronaut, or a professional basketball player, or a world-famous illusionist, or a therapist. We just want him to grow up. We want him to experience the love of a family. We want him to celebrate not only his second birthday, but also his twenty-second, fifty-second, and ninety-second birthdays. But none of this will be possible without your love, support, prayers, donations, and a new liver for Albert.

We need to give this little guy a chance. His parents abandoned him, his orphanage didn’t have the resources to help him, and the local hospitals in his orphanage’s province were unable to give him the Kasai procedure (a treatment for newborns with Biliary Atresia that could delay the need for a liver transplant). As a last ditch effort to save Albert’s life, his orphanage sent him to New Day Foster Home in Qingyundian Township, China, which has a loving staff of volunteers and nannies and is close to the hospitals in Beijing with doctors who have the skills and equipment to perform the surgery that Albert needs to survive.

With your help, Albert has hope of a future. Albert needs you to advocate for him! Please give what you can, and please help spread the word! Every life is precious; little Albert’s life is no exception. Help us reach our goal of raising $40,000 to save Albert's life!
