Dad Loses 40 Pounds To Become Daughter’s Liver Donor

Comments: 5  | Leave A Comment

Camargo became cleared for the surgery just one day before Jazlyn’s liver began to fail. The next day, Camargo underwent the surgery where doctors removed one-third of his liver to give to his daughter.

Both surgeries were successful.

Camargo will suffer no ill effects from the surgery and his liver regenerated within three months after the procedure. Jazlyn will, however, have to remain on immunosuppressant medications, but should lead a normal life.

Now more than a year later, Camargo and Jazlyn are fine. He has maintained the majority of his weight loss and is grateful to be able to enjoy the holidays with his baby. Camargo has also become an avid supporter of organ donation. As a matter of fact, he managed to get his entire clan to sign the backs of their driver’s licenses to become organ donors as well.

Now, nothing warms the devoted dad’s heart more than seeing his little girl actively running all about his home. “It’s a scary experience going through it but the outcome pays off,” Camargo told ABC News. “When you see your child running up and down, you know something good came out of it.”

  1. That was a beautiful story! And what a beautiful portrayal of what a real man, father, husband would do for his child and family!

  2. What an amazing story, God bless that family, and I hope it serves as a testimony of what Jesus said in John 15:13, where no greater love is there than to lay down your life for a friend. Thanks for sharing this story for all to enjoy as we close out this year 2013 and look forward to an even better 2014. Blessings to all!

  3. Camargo..I salute you.You mean to tell me if this was an article about sensless violence in our neighborhood or coonery in Hollywood there would all kinds of comments….Wake up people. The things we think are of importance really aren’t.
