"Cry, Girl. If crying can reduce your pain, then cry" maybe that's what Adiva's mother said when she saw her daughter's suffering. Adiva's body looks yellow since she was 40 days old. Her feces color is pale and her urine colored like tea. When she was 6 months old, his stomach appeared to bulge abnormally. After having checked by her doctors, it is known that Adiva has biliary atresia.
Biliary atresia is the condition of the bile duct closing in a newborn baby. Biliary atresia is a serious, dangerous condition. Bile ducts are channels that carry bile fluid from the liver to the 12-finger intestine. In infants with biliary atresia, bile cannot flow into the intestine due to the closure of the duct. As a result, the bile builds up in the liver. This condition can cause damage to the liver tissue, resulting in scar tissue (fibrosis), which can lead to cirrhosis. Adiva also has liver cirrhosis. Cirrhosis develops slowly and results in healthy tissue being replaced by scar tissue. Scarring will inhibit the flow of blood that passes through the liver so that the liver's performance becomes disturbed or even stops. Because of the condition, the doctor suggested that a liver transplant be carried out on Adiva.
Before transplantation, screening for liver donors must be done. The costs required for laboratory testing are quite high which can reach tens of millions of rupiah. Moreover, Adiva's nutritional conditions must also be kept in good condition. Adiva is suggested to drink milk that is rich in nutrients, but the price is very expensive for Adiva's parents, which is hundreds of thousands per can. Adiva's father is a worker at the Betta fish farm, while his mother is a tutor. Their salary is only enough for daily needs. This modest family who lives in a flats in Palembang hopes that there will be a way for the recovery of her child.
Let's help reduce Adiva's burden!
