This young sweet child you see right here is not only a blessing from god but a fighter, Hamlet suffers from Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis also known as PFIC one. In children with PFIC, cells in the liver cannot release bile, a fluid that helps the body digest food. As a result, bile builds up in the liver, leading to symptoms such as jaundice, itching, impaired growth, and delayed puberty. There are several types of PFIC, each caused by a different genetic defect.
I met Hamlet about 5 months ago and his story truly touched my heart. To witness a family encounter so many trials and turbulence but yet stay strong and positive in hopes to see their child win this battle has truly displayed their spiritual and mental strength,
Also to witness little Hamlet battle this like a warrior despite all the episodes of tears and scratching himself so intensely due to the intense itching PFIC causes has truly impacted me.
Hamlets mom informed me that Hamlet began this battle a year and seven months ago , Hamlet has undergone one large surgery and countless biopsies and treatment in efforts to cure Hamlet however his condition has only worsened and now Hamlet needs a transplant,
Hamlet mom is a candidate for his transplant and will be his donor however his pre and post treatment are extremely costly and they cant afford the medical debt that is attached to this horrible condition,
If so , I am asking on behalf of my family to please help Hamlet and donate what you can to help this child live longer.
