Mom’s gift to Baby Brodie Tigue

Children are miracles, and mothers are always there to protect them. The perfect example for this is Traci Tigue, a mother who gave everything she could to know that her little boy, Brodie, would be healthy.

Brodie was born in May of this year, and he was a healthy baby. Everything went well for the first few days until the parents noticed that something was not right with Brodie. His skin was very sensitive, his eyes had a yellow tinge, and he bled even when his mom cut his nails. The parents rushed Brodie to a pediatrician, but he told them the symptoms would pass.

A mother feels when something is wrong, so Traci decided to take Brodie to another doctor. What she found out was devastating; Brodie had artresia, a disease that required a liver transplant. From here, everything happened very fast. There were dozens of people who offered to donate a portion of their liver to Brodie, but his mother was the one chosen. The doctors said that she was a perfect match, and she did not have any second thoughts.

The family was supportive and they sold T-shirts and orchestrated campaigns to crowd-fund the money necessary for the surgery. In only a few weeks, Traci and her son were admitted to the Cleveland Clinic to have the transplant operation. And everything went great!

Brodie received the liver without any problem, and as of today, there are no signs of rejection. Traci is recovering well, and she is grateful every day that she gets to see her baby healthy. This is the kind of sacrifice that, in Traci’s mind, is no sacrifice at all.
