As a result of the disorder, she underwent a liver transplant on December 14th, 2010. She received 15% of her Daddy's liver. She had complications and underwent two additional surgeries on December 19th and 20th. A new liver allows her body to process protein and have a better chance at a long life. The first year following transplant was anything but easy.
Other than missing a genetic enzyme, Luca is a healthy, happy girl. Just looking at her, you would never know what she has been through. Our life is busy- but we still have some normalcy. She is certainly a special girl, marked with a heart, who has captured the audience and love of a lot of people. Feel free to browse the blog to find out more information about our journey.
