Master Abdul Hannan
A little life blooms, fighting all the odds that once loomed
When he was four months old, Master Abdul Hannan came to Global Hospitals, Mumbai with a complaint of persistent jaundice. He had been suffering from the same since his birth. Further investigations revealed that he was suffering from Biliary Atresia, a medical condition that affects the bile ducts. He was post 90 days from birth, and had already developed decompensated chronic liver disease. The only available treatment option was a timely liver transplant surgery.
His father Mr. Shahnawaz Pathan had just returned from Saudi Arabia after losing his job due to the COVID pandemic. The family, being residents of Lanja Village in Ratnagiri, had no other source of income.
Adequate funds for him were raised through crowdfunding, TPAF and other funders for evaluation of donor and recipient, hospitalization in the wait period, transplant surgery and even post-transplant medication.
His mother, Mrs Tarannum Pathan came forward to donate a part of her liver. The transplant surgery was done on November 04, 2020. It was a successful operation and post op recovery was smooth and consistent.
Abdul is now well, reaching all his developmental milestones and celebrated his first birthday with doctors who gave him a lease of life.
