Mansfield shows support for officer's baby in need of liver transplant

Paris Brown needs a liver transplant

The community of Mansfield comes together to help save one of its police officer's children. Eight-month-old Paris Brown is in need of a liver transplant. Paris is the daughter of
Mansfield Patrol Officer Tamara Brown.

Paris was born with biliary atresia. She’s receiving dialysis and hooked up to a respirator at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, TX. She’s been given nine months to live if she does not receive a liver transplant.

Already, three living donors have been tested. They weren't a match. Now, the family said doctors want to test family members' livers to see if they're a match, but the family
has to come up with $50,000 to pay for those tests.

Family friend Rita Myles is organizing fundraisers to help the family. On Tuesday, a
cookout was held outside city hall. The family said they were able to raise more
than $5,000.

The  next fundraiser is a fish-fry, set for Sept. 14 at Market Basket.

If you’d like to help out the family, you can call Rita Myles at (318) 871-4333.
