For most people childhood represents some of the happiest and best moments of their lives but sometimes a cruel twist of fate makes childhood a painful experience with a possibly tragic ending.
This is the prospect faced by the parents of Mark Angelo Salazar a child born with pediatric biliary atresia, a disease where the liver could not produce bile to eliminate toxins from the body. The disease ravaged young Mark’s body wracking it with pain as his belly swelled and he developed jaundice along with a host of other complications. Despite, the challenges they faced Mark remain upbeat and lively despite the numerous afflictions he faced. This gave his parents the will to fight as they sought help for their child.
Having heard of Mark’s plight, Aquabest immediately set out to raise funds for his treatment by selling “I Saved A Child’s Life” T-Shirts. The campaign was very successful and helped raise the money needed for Mark’s treatment and his liver transplant in Taiwan in January. Thanks to the support of numerous donors and those who bought the shirt’s Mark now faces a bright future free from his current discomfort.
