Shantalea J.

Biliary Atresia

Shantalea J - Faces of Liver DiseaseAs an infant I was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia, underwent the Kasai procedure, and had my gallbladder removed.

I did not learn of my medical history until I was a teenager, so I never fully understood the extend of my condition even though I had a large scar on my stomach.

I am now 36 years old, a wife and mother of two children.

I have a successful career and a doctorate degree. I wanted to share my story to hopefully give other Biliary Atresia families hope.
