We share our joys and shed our worries with our support buddies.
We want to share the story of little Kavya Raut, one of our support group members who is just three years old and her smile can melt your heart in seconds.
She has faced the harshness and sting of the scalpel very early in life. When Kavya was two months old, her mother noticed something amiss with her stool colour. Unlike the usual colour, she passed a white coloured stool.
When she was nine months old, she started showing other problematic signs – breathing problems. One such episode was so severe that she had to be admitted to the hospital immediately. Doctors suspected chest infection, but slow weight gain, stool complains made them do an in-depth investigation of her health.
It was then that the doctors found out she suffered from biliary atresia a disease of the bile ducts that affects only infants. She underwent a liver transplant in 2018. Today she is all smiles, living a carefree and healthy life.
