After almost 5 years of health issues and battling against complications, our dearest BraveSaab needs a liver RE-transplant.

Saab was diagnosed with Chronic Liver Disease (CLD) secondary to Caroli's Disease in March 2018. With the kindness and generosity of family, friends, and people we hardly know, she got the life saving liver transplant done in July 2018 in New Delhi, India.

The transplant went well until a month after when a complication arose. After a series of tests and diagnostic procedures, it was found out that she developed bile duct strictures causing her again to have a deranged liver profile and become jaundiced. From September 2018 to August 2019, Saab underwent countless procedures - biliary drainage insertions, ERCP, MRCP and surgeries - to try to address the issue. Unfortunately, all those turned out unsuccessful. Her liver enzymes still increased and her jaundice worsened to a dangerous level.

After 18 months stay in India and as soon as Saab got physically better to travel, we brought her back to the Philippines with hopes that she’ll be better over time. Sadly, it wasn’t the case. By early 2021, progressive complications started to kick in. Saab has been in and out of the hospital for various reasons, with a number of them putting her in a very critical state. And just recently, she had gastrointestinal bleeding, indicating the severity of the allograft dysfunction.

After careful evaluation and consultation with experts, it has been finalized that Saab has to have another liver transplant. Alongside the transplant, she also has to undergo routine variceal banding to prevent bleeding. Given the complexity of her condition and her current fragile state, we really have to be thorough in deciding on where to have it done. But one thing is sure - we need help in raising at least Php5M for these procedures.

Though it is heartbreaking to again be doing these all over again, we are very much thankful that Saab is braving through it all. And as parents, we’ll do everything to save her and give her a chance to live the life she is fighting hard for. I, together with my entire family, am knocking onto your kindest hearts to PLEASE HELP US again. Hand in hand, let us give her a chance to live longer in this beautiful world.

We will be forever indebted to the help you will be extending our family. And though I won't be able to thank you one by one, please know that I will be eternally grateful for you.

Also, if it is not too much to ask, please include Saab and the rest of our family in your prayers. We are facing this trial one day at a time and we look forward to the day that Saab will be the one, personally, thanking all of you for the chance of life you gave her.
