What We do
CHILDREN GET LIVER DISEASE TOO! 1 in 1000 children born in the UK develop liver disease Twenty years ago most children died, usually before their first birthday. Today, advances in Diagnosis, Molecular Genetics, New Drug Therapy, Liver Transplantation means that we can save children with liver disease.
SPLIT Supports children with liver disease and their families through:
- Financial support for needy families in crisis
- Information and education for families, professionals and the public
- Research into the causes of liver disease and how best to treat it
Harriet was born with a rare liver disease, biliary atresia, which causes the bile to be trapped into the liver poisoning the whole body. She nearly died but now after successful transplantation, Harriet is enjoying life like other healthy children of her age.
