Parents Express Gratitude To Liver Transplant Donor Following Leeds Operation For Baby.

The parents of a four-month-old baby in North Lincolnshire have expressed their gratitude for the “extraordinary and special” liver donor who saved their daughter’s life. Sammy Bromfield and Jamie Langton appealed for a liver donor for their daughter, Florence-Ivy, after she was diagnosed with end-stage liver failure caused by biliary atresia, a bile duct blockage. The couple thanked the donor and said that their daughter “has been given the gift of life” and is currently receiving care at Leeds Children’s Hospital. Florence-Ivy’s condition was discovered during a check-up, and despite an initial unsuccessful surgery aimed at delaying the need for a transplant, the couple made an urgent appeal for a donor.

Sammy Bromfield took to social media to express her gratitude, stating that the words “thank you” cannot adequately convey their emotions. She also urged others to consider becoming donors, as there are still many people in need of transplants. Florence-Ivy’s donor had to meet specific criteria, including being between 18 and 50 years old, having blood type O (either positive or negative), and meeting weight and health guidelines. The couple’s urgent plea for a donor received support from many, and they are now hopeful for their daughter’s recovery.
