Early this year around April, my older sister Ma.Gezebil Impas was diagnosed with Liver Cirrhosis caused by Auto-Immune Hepatitis. This health condition attacks organs (in this case her liver) because her body thinks that it does not belong there in the first place. Like a bacteria, her liver is being destroyed by her own immune system. At this point, she is already at an “END-STAGE” period where the liver has started to harden and shrink almost half the original size. The best solution is liver transplant.
However, because of the nature of her condition, if liver transplant is successful, the Auto-Immune disorder will most likely to attack her liver again. Aside from that, we can never afford that procedure which will cost us at least Five to Eight million pesos.
Our only option right now is to give her steroids that will slowly help revive the liver’s functionality and eventually recover allowing the rest of the affected organs to function back as well.
Sadly, we cannot start the steroid intake because of some infections. Last Saturday evening November 10, she fainted and had to be taken to the hospital. Her body is showing signs of giving up. We’ve already exhausted our finances so we are asking for help from family and friends.
Please help us save our sister.
