Hello, my name is Deeksha and I was diagnosed with Budd Chiari syndrome two weeks ago. It is essentially a condition which blocks the blood vessels around the liver with blood clots and ultimately causes acute liver failure. I am a single mother of an eight year old boy named Rajesh. I work three jobs ( as a receptionist on weekdays and as a cashier and data entry operator on weekends). All of my earnings go towards providing Rajesh with a comfortable life. My savings have almost dwindled away to nothing due to the frequent medical check ups in the past two weeks. My doctor wants to perform a surgery to place a shunt in order to divert the blood flow and stop my liver from shutting down. My son has already lost his father in a road accident and I do not want him to lose his mother as well. Every single dollar you donate helps me get one step closer to surgery. The surgery has a higher chance of success and a lower mortality rate if performed soon after the syndrome being diagnosed. Please help me fight this disease by funding my surgery. I will post all surgical updates on this page. Thank you so much for taking the time out to read my story and help me out.
