Bukidnon Online has always aimed to provide a platform for all of those who need help and for those who want to help. Here’s another case whereby those with generous hearts are definitely needed and appreciated. Please read and feel free to share with your friends: This little boy’s name is Rodel Lundaan. His family resides in Capitan Bayong in Impasug-ong, and he needs our help. He has a condition called Biliary Atresia. This is a congenital condition which means he was born with it. His skin color and his eyes are a deep yellow-greenish color (jaundice). He is 1 year and 8 months old but his size and weight is that of a 6 month old baby. He is badly in need of medical attention.
According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NDDIC), Biliary Atresia is a serious but rare disease of the liver that affects newborn infants. It occurs in about one in 10,000 children and is more common in girls than in boys and in Asian and African-American newborns than in Caucasian newborns. The cause of biliary atresia is not known, and treatments are only partially successful. Biliary atresia is the most common reason for liver transplantation in children in the United States and most of the Western world.
Please share this page with all of your friends and relatives. Thank you very much! And please, let’s all include Rodel in our prayers.
