Sinopsis:

I AM A FLOWER POT MADE FOR A PLANT tells the story of four year old Assiah’s adventurous search for her liver transplant. On her adventure, Assiah makes friends with Juju a fascinating and vivacious 10 year old with cancer. Together they explore the mystical world of a greenhouse in the child life lounge. While at the greenhouse, Assiah meets Oliver, a talking tree who explains liver transplants as Assiah finds the perfect plant for her.

About the Author:

Assiah is a seven year old double liver transplant patient who in May 2008 was diagnosed with drug induced hepatitis. In July 2008, Assiah began experiencing debilitating effects of biliary atresia from her drug induced injuries — biliary atresia is a blockage of the ducts that carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder and intestines. When trapped in the liver, bile creates scar tissue that causes cirrhosis and eventually leads to liver failure. By 2010, Assiah had already endured multiple surgeries — including a Kasai and a failing liver transplant performed in July 2009. On July 9, 2012, Stephen P. Dunn, MD, chair of the Department of Surgery at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children and Professor of Surgery at Sidney Kimmel Medical College, and Warren Maley, MD, Professor of Surgery at Jefferson, performed Assiah's second transplant: a partial liver whose other lobe was transplanted to 1960s teen idol and fellow Philadelphian Robert Ridarelli — better known as Bobby Rydell. Three years later, Assiah is thriving and ready to share her story with the world.
