I Don't Know You but Let Me Save You, A Liver Donor Recounts Her Journey
by Hoong Ling Chew
It began with a mass email requesting for what the author thought was blood donation. When Hoong Ling found out that the request was for liver, she did not stop but took steps, one at a time, culminating on January 14, 2009, when she donated part of her liver to save Lee An Qi who was suffering from liver cancer at age thirteen. This book tells the story of her physical, psychological and spiritual processes, told with candor, courage and humor, from the moment she responded to that fateful email, to post surgery and recovery. It is also the story of a young woman who has dedicated her life to serving others from the time she was thirteen. Who believes passionately in promoting organ donation awareness and who walks her talk. “I Don’t Know You But Let Me Save You…A Liver Donor Recounts Her Journey” by Hoong Ling is told in three parts. The first part recounts the author’s journey to save a life, the second part of the book contains frequently asked questions about organ donation and the third part, which the author considers the most important, contains pledge forms and an invitation for readers to donate their organs.
