Zachary Branson was born with a liver disease known as biliary atresia. The main procedure that was performed is known as a Kasai portoenterostomy. This operation connects the bile drainage from the liver directly to the intestinal tract. Success of this procedure may be improved when it is done before an infant is 8 weeks old. The Kasai procedure is helpful because it permits bile to flow and can allow a child to grow and remain in fairly good health for many years. It is important to understand that this surgery is typically a treatment for and not cure of biliary atresia. Ongoing liver disease is likely to continue to occur even with a successful operation. Up to 80 percent of children who undergo the Kasai portoenterostomy will eventually need to have a liver transplant. Doctors warned that Zach would not live past the age of 2 years old. Now at 29 years old, Zach has surprised the medical community. He has gone through quite rough times in his life growing up with this disease. His mother passed away in 2006 from liver and kidney failure due to alcoholism. Zach cannot work a "normal" job anymore due to complications that arise from this disease. He is currently in the process of fighting for disability. The application status is pending. We are asking to share this page with everyone you know. Encourage your loved ones and friends to become an organ and tissue donor. If you have been blessed enough in life to allow yourself to make a donation to this brave, strong young man it is greatly appreciated. All funds raised will be used for basic living and medical expenses for Zach in his time of need. All help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
