Leaping For Em

Leaping Livers 2019

Emmanuel, our Miracle baby

In June 2018, our 2 day old little boy Emmanuel was admitted to Randwick Hospital with the devastating diagnosis of OTC Deficiency - an extremely rare disease affecting the liver's ability to process protein resulting in dangerously high levels of ammonia.

By the time Emmanuel was diagnosed, put on dialysis and had his ammonia levels brought back down, he had already suffered numerous seizures and significant brain damage. The doctors said that IF he made it through, he would not make it past two years without a liver transplant. 

By grace & faith, Emmanuel eventually came home, but now the challenge was to get him healthy enough for a potential liver transplant. 

In early January this year, we got the call that made our hearts stop - there was a potential liver for Emmanuel. Work up completed, he went into lifesaving surgery at the mere age of 7 months. 

Several, agonising weeks later Emmanuel returned home with a new liver thanks to the Westmead Liver Transplant Unit, and now it's our time to give back and give hope to all those other families who need the support, love and help of the Leaping Livers team.
