There’s been an overwhelming response so far to a Vaughan family’s public appeal for a live liver donor for their eight-month-old baby.

Delfina Budziak has a rare congenital liver disease called Biliary Atresia and this week, her parents launched a social media campaign to find a living donor.

More than 200 potential liver donors have stepped forward to help.

As 680 NEWS first brought you the story on Wednesday, Delfina has been at the Hospital for Sick Children for a month, after suffering cholangitis — liver infection — the day after her baptism in April.

Her father, Peter, said Delfina won’t be able to leave hospital until she gets a liver donation.

She requires an O-positive blood match from a healthy person between 18 to 50 years old. Those interested in trying to help should contact Toronto General Hospital.
