Delfina's Superhero Squad
Welcome to our Liver Life Walk Team Page!
Thank you for your interest in supporting our Liver Life Walk team, Delfina's Superhero Squad!
On March 6, 2013, at only 34days old, Delfina spent 14hrs in the emergency room to be diagnosed with jaundice- not to the same as "newborn jaundice." We followed up with a liver specialist at Columbia Presbyterian's Children's Hospital who gave us dozens of possibilities; it was a terrifying road we had ahead of us. After vile upon viles of blood, ultrasounds, scans, a liver biopsy & a cholangiogram Delfina was diagnosed with biliary atresia. On March 26, 2013 she underwent the Kasai procedure and after eight excruciating hours we were reunited with our sweet girl. Since her surgery Delfina has made great progress & lab results continue to be positive. The liver team, ourselves included, are very optimistic at this time. Taking it on one day at a time, Delfina lights up the life of everyone she touches with her smile & warm spirit. We continue to pray to God everyday to give us strength, to give Delfina superhero strength, to continue to live a healthy life.
