Help Save Baby Nicholas
On 10 July 2016, our beautiful baby boy came into this world. Little did we know that in just 8 weeks time, our world would crash into millions of pieces. A blood test showed that Nicholas, in fact, was born with a life-threatening disease called Biliary Atresia, a chronic condition that affects the drainage of bail from the liver and eventually causes liver failure. It meant that without urgent surgery at 9 weeks of age and intense medical care to follow Nicholas had months to live. To us, his family, the news has been devastating. This disease is not genetic, it is not something that mum did or did not do during pregnancy, it just happens and it can indeed happen to any baby born to healthy, active adults. It is totally random.
