Mother Donates Half Her Liver

As any parent will know, you would do anything for your child and Charlotte Rogers certainly did that.

Imogen was born without any bile ducts making it impossible for her to break down fats in her diet.  The rare condition called biliary atresia was diagnosed when Imogen was nine weeks old and could eventually have led to bile poisoning her to death.  After five months on the waiting list for a transplant Ms Rogers decided to donate half her liver to her daughter.

Following a nine hour operation both mother and daughter recovered well and are looking to a positive future.  The liver will regenerate so both Ms Rogers and Imogen will have normal sized livers in time.
