When Mr Phuah Boon Hua, 35, was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2016, he lost the will to live despite having a wife and two-year-old son to care for. However, his wife Madam Yong Wai Ling, 34, refused to let him give up on life.

It was at the end 2015 when Boon Hua, who suffers from high blood pressure, went for a medical check-up at the polyclinic. The doctor told him that his creatinine level was getting higher, which was an indication that his kidney function was gradually becoming more and more impaired.

Boon Hua did not want to go for dialysis for the rest of his life and he was scared to undergo a transplant operation. During this period of uncertainty, he had severe leg pains due to high uric acid. He said to his wife, "If you live without me, okay or not?" Wai Ling told him to think positively for the sake of her and their child.

She decided that a live kidney transplant is the best option and persuaded Boon Hua to go for the series of tests to see if she was a suitable donor. Her kidney was a match. The successful transplant took place on 30 January 2018. Wai Ling's employers were very supportive, allowing her to take leave and even paid her salary for the two months she was recuperating from her surgery. NKF is providing them with financial assistance through its Kidney Live Donor Support Fund.

Show your love and support for kidney patients who are receiving dialysis treatment and on the waiting list to receive a kidney transplant.
