Eva, an eighteen month old baby, needs surgery. Born May 4, 2009, in Minsk, Belarus, Eva has liver cirrhosis and is suspected to suffer from Alagille Syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects the liver, heart, kidney, and other functions. She needs a liver transplant as early as possible and her mother will be a liver donor. Her parents need help raising the money required to give Eva a chance to live.
