A Chance for Life: Hope for Justin

Justin Marc Russel Nieto Paga, was born on June 29, 2012 with BILIARY ATRESIA--a fatal, serious and rare liver disease that affects newborn infants (1 out of 15,000). At three months old, Baby Justin's liver--and life--is at risk. His disease is caused by his liver not having bile ducts. The bile ducts should help the liver drain out bile to pass it on to the intestines for digesting food. As a result, the bile is trapped inside his body and this will cause liver scarring and loss of liver tissue/Cirrhosis. While the cause is still unknown, this disease is destroying his liver.

At a very young age of three months, Baby Justin already underwent Kasai Procedure (Hepato-portoenterostomy)--a surgical procedure that temporarily provides a passage way of bile out of the liver. During the Kasai Procedure the doctors conducted a liver biopsy to verify the status of his liver. Unfortunately, his liver was damaged resulting to Biliary Atresia with Liver Cirrhosis. The only solution that the doctors recommended is a liver transplant. The only curative management for Biliary Atresia.

This is why we appeal to your kind consideration. Please visit www.hopeforjustin.blogspot.com and help us raise funds for our son's liver transplantation. We will appreciate any amount from your kind heart. You can help us through donations.
