Sin Chew Daily reported that a 13-year-old girl, who received a liver transplant from a former television show host, died eight months after the procedure.
Chew Hoong Ling, 29, donated 60% of her liver to the girl from Kuala Lumpur at a private hospital in Singapore on Jan 14.
Chew said she received a call from the girl’s aunt last Saturday saying that the teenager was in the intensive care unit. The girl died a day later.
“I have no regrets donating part of my liver to her. It will be worth it if others decide to donate their organs after reading our story.
“She was a very strong and cheerful girl,” said Chew, who learnt about the girl’s condition on the Internet.
