A desperate daughter is appealing for a suitable liver donor to save the life of her middle-aged father who is suffering from terminal liver failure. According to Leslie Tan Zheng Yu, doctors have said that her father has just a week left if he does not get a liver transplant.
In a series of heartbreaking posts in a Facebook page she set up appealing for donors to come forward, Leslie wrote: “The liver is not functioning as it should. 10 liters of water is trapped within the body cavity. He cannot eat, cannot drink, cannot sleep, and he is in perpetual distress and pain. He really needs your help. He is afraid. I am doing everything I can to fight for his life.”
Leslie’s father, Eddie Tan Beng Leong, needs a liver donor who is between 21 and 55 years old, weighs between 70 and 95 kgs, is medically fit and has the blood type O+.
Revealing that she and her sibling tried to donate their own liver but have incompatible blood types, Leslie appealed: “He urgently needs to find a suitable liver donor to give him a new lease of life…The liver is an organ that can regenerate, so if you know anyone who would be willing to share the gift of life, I would be deeply in your debt.
