In January this year, Ms Lai Yoke Ling's life changed when she became the 1,000th patient at Singapore General Hospital (SGH) to undergo a kidney transplant from a deceased donor, nearly 50 years after the hospital performed the nation's first such procedure back in 1970.
Just three months after his first heart attack in November 2014, Mr Mohamed Rezal Yusof suffered a second one – this time more severe and eventually putting him on the waiting list for a transplant. While the first heart attack was managed with blood thinning medication as doctors did not detect any blockage in the arteries, the second one severely damaged his heart muscle.
