Aylianna was born June 25th,2009 with Biliary Atresia. 1 in 15,000-20,000 babies are born with BA every year. BA is a condition where the bile ducts of the Liver are absent. She has just had a liver transplant (05/25/2010) and your help is needed.

UPDATE: Aylianna was discharged June 11.  They have to stay in the local area for about a month and are staying at a local hotel under sponsorship of the Hospital.  She is going pretty good but now the long process of follow up testing begins leading up to them being able to go back to Albuquerque.  Your support is still needed.  Please contribute whatever you can. Thank you.

UPDATE: (June 2/3) The doctors had to go back in and take care of some fluid build up that occured around the area where the new liver is attached.  They found a small abcess and took care of that.  Ayli did okay in  this latest surgery and is doing well. 

UPDATE: Aylianna is now five days post transplant and is on the post-op floor.  She continues to show improvement with only minor issues.  She should soon be able to feed again.  We continue to hope you will help us raise funding to assist Ayli's parents.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

AYLI UPDATE: The surgery to replace Ayli's liver went very well.  The operatoin lasted appox 7.5 hours.  Ayli kept waking up in the PICU so they weaned her off intubation earlier than expected.  She seems to be resting comfortably.  Please be sure to read Aylis Blog for a touching tribute to the parents who made the tough call that has given Ayli a new chance at life.  Now begins a new adjustment for the family.  The various medicines that Aylianna will have to start taking, and she will be on them for a long long time.  I would also point out that the day of her transplant she was exactly 11 months old.

Please help this family out with any donation you can make. even 5 or 10 dollars adds up to ease the familys financial hardship.

AYLI UPDATE: They have found a liver for the transplant. They will be taking Ayli to OR sometime between 7-10 PST. Stay Tuned For Further Updates!

Aylianna has spent about 60% of her life in the hospital.  We are trying to raise funds to help with medical bills and living expenses for her parents to stay with her in the hospital located in another state from which they reside.  More information can be found on Facebook at "Help Make the World Aware of Billary Atresia", a site started by her mother or by following Alyianna's journey by going to her blog spot Ayliannamarie.blogspot.com
