SEVEN Hong Kong children - now bright and healthy - have been delivered from the brink of death by life-saving liver transplants they received at Brisbane's Royal Children's Hospital. Among the seven is five-year-old Lau Fu-in, whose 1992 operation was funded by $2 million in contributions from South China Morning Post readers. Since Fu-in's visit to the Brisbane hospital to receive a liver from an unknown donor three years ago, doctors at Queen Mary hospital say she is doing very well. Fu-in visits the hospital regularly to receive check-ups and blood tests to monitor her immuno-suppression level. Doctors also report toddler Lun Wai-sze is healthy and happy, after her liver transplant at the Australian centre. Before Wai-sze received her donor organ, Hong Kong doctors had warned her parents the little girl had just three months to live. Today a robust two-year-old, Wai-sze was only 14 months old and sickly when she fell dangerously ill with liver failure because of a blockage in the bile duct. She left the territory for Brisbane in June last year with her parents after a fruitless seven-month search for a compatible donor in Hong Kong. Her parents put their entire life savings of $100,000 toward their daughter's medical and travel expenses. When Nam Kin-long was only eight months old, his liver condition had become so dire that his parents were told his only chance of survival would be to go to the Brisbane hospital. They took the baby boy there shortly before Christmas 1993. The Royal Hong Kong Police raised thousands of dollars to help Kin-long's father, a police officer, and mother fund the journey. Prince of Wales Hospital spokesman Dr Yeung Chung-kwong said Hong Kong's four other youngsters with Australian livers are leading healthy, normal lives. Diana Lee Hoi-yan, now 16, was the first Hong Kong child to receive a liver transplant at the hospital. Youngsters Chow Yee-ting, Lam Ka-hei and Lo Wing-ka also received their transplants between 1991 and 1992, and are blossoming into healthy childhood, Dr Yeung said.
