S’porean With Liver Disease Has 10 Litres Of Water Trapped In His Body
As a child, it is heart-wrenching to witness our elderly parents suffer from diseases.
A netizen, Mr Leslie Tan Zheng Yu, is urgently appealing for a liver donation to save his father who was diagnosed with terminal liver disease.
According to doctors, his father, Mr Eddie Tan Beng Leong, will only have about a week left if a donor isn’t found soon.
Currently in extreme discomfort
As of yesterday (23 May), Mr Tan had 10 litres of water trapped within his body.
According to Leslie, his father wasn’t able to eat, drink or sleep, and he was in constant distress and pain.
Urgently seeks liver donor
Leslie is now urgently looking for suitable liver donors to help save his father’s life.
Both of Mr Tan’s children are unfortunately unable to help as they have incompatible blood groups.
The potential liver donor will have to meet the following requirements.
- 21-55 years old
- Blood type O+
- Weighs between 70-95kg
- Medically fit
Potential donors will have to undergo extensive testing to ensure that they are in good physical health before they are able to donate.
Contact Leslie as soon as possible
Leslie has also set up a Facebook page, where he’ll provide updates on his father’s situation.
If you meet the above criteria and are willing to be a donor to save his father’s life, do reach out to Leslie ASAP via his Facebook page.
Otherwise, you can also help to spread the word around to help increase the chance of him finding a suitable donor.
We hope a potential donor will be found soon so Mr Tan can make a speedy recovery.
