At 2 months old, Remmy was diagnosed with a liver condition called biliary atresia and was rushed into emergency surgery, only to find out that the progressive nature of this condition required a liver transplant as soon as possible.
"As a parent you never want to see your child suffer and you try to do anything in your power to keep them from feeling any kind of pain. Unfortunately, this situation was out of our control. Watching our first born newborn endure the pain of surgeries and all the complications that followed was torture. All we could is hold him, comfort him and never leave his side. Although this has been a very tough road, especially for our Remmy, it has definitely made our family stronger. It has shown us how precious life is and to NEVER take it for granted. Every day is a good day, as long as we have each other," said Remmy’s mom.
In 2017 Remmy became the very proud owner of a new liver! He has not had any major complications; he’s happier than ever and looking so much healthier. He’s a very active little guy and is always so happy. His wish to meet all of the characters at Walt Disney World®
with his family was a dream of a lifetime for him and his entire family.
