Eight-month-old Tuptim Jadngooluem has been given a second chance at life after she successfully underwent surgery at Ramathibodi Hospital in Bangkok yesterday.

Tuptim, who was diagnosed at three months with a terminal liver condition known as biliary obstruction, has spent over a month in hospital awaiting a parental donor liver transplant to save her life.

To keep her baby alive, Tuptim’s mother, Nit, donated part of her liver during yesterday’s operation, performed by Bangkok-based specialist Dr Sumate Teeraratkul.

After 18-hours of surgery involving mother and daughter, both are today recovering in Ramathibodi Hospital and are said to be doing well.

I love seeing/hearing about this kind of thing (obviously not the illness) but the fact that people are going out of their way to help. It's awesome, Dana deserves a ton of respect for this, love him or hate him, this was a class act on his part and he should be applauded for it, very unselfish thing for him to do.

kudos to Dana. he has gained a lot more respect from me. hopefully a lot of those MMA detractors who dislike Dana due to his loud and foul mouth will see him (and hopefully the sport as he is the most notable spokeman) in a new light.

and to D0wnUnd6e6r, i am sorry to hear that

Of course, but if you have a kid you would know it hits home just a bit more.

I didn't understand how Dana chose the family for donation so I went to the Phuket Gazette's website and the father is Rattanachai “Kru Nai”, a well-known trainer at Tiger Muay Thai. Just in case anyone else was wondering how this family was chosen.
