Let’s help baby Mark get his liver transplant

Mark Salazar is a 1 year and 8 month old fighter, diagnosed with Biliary Atresia when he was 7mos. old.

From PGH to UST’s charity ward, Mark has been in and out of the hospital since his 1st birthday. Due to his congenital problem, the common cough and cold progresses to pnuemonia. His young body is susceptible to complications and infections, and has suffered from measles, diarrhea and sepsis.

Despite his illness, he is a lively toddler. A personality that has touched the doctors at UST who sent him well wishes upon discharge, all hoping not to see him being admitted again.

Here’s another brave child that needs your support, in any way one can give. Mark undergoes monthly blood tests. The family was advised by Dra. Gregorio (Head of Gastro-Interology, PGH) that Mark badly needs a liver transplant as soon as possible.

Mark can get the liver from his mother up to a 2nd cousin. The Liver Transplantation will need to be done in Taiwan at the Chang Gung Hospital and has a 97% survival rate.

Mark’s father has resigned from his job to dedicate his time to care for his youngest while the mother is on indefinite leave from her job. They have done fund raisers through raffles and t-shirt sales. They have also appealed to PCSO and will be receiving financial help but it will not be enough to cover the transplant and monthly medical maintenance like check-up, blood tests and medicines.
