Blind woman in Singapore gets kidney transplant after 10 years
Miss Tan Xing En is a 23 year old blind woman living in Singapore. Since the age of 13 years, she had been suffering from a kidney failure.
She had to wait for 10 years to get a transplant as a donor was not available until recently.
She was surviving on dialysis for last 10 years but found a match when a donor died in a road accident.
The transplant has made her life better as she does not have to go for dialysis anymore.
Like her, many people have to wait for several years for a positive donor as the number of people willing to donate organs is very less. The waiting list of patients is very long.
