Tee Hui Yee - An Inspiration To Millions

From New Straits Times.

HEART transplant patient Tee Hui Yee who passed away on September 18, 2012 will always be an inspiration to millions of Malaysians.

She gave them hope that there is life after organ transplants and that one should live life to the fullest.

Tee, 19, was a kindergarten teacher in her hometown Batu Pahat, Johor.

She was the youngest of four siblings.

In 2007, she touched the hearts of millions when she pleaded for a donor heart while having to survive on a mechanical heart.

She had used a mechanical heart for about a year before she underwent surgery at the National Heart Institute in Kuala Lumpur after receiving a heart from a youth who died in a road accident in Perak.

She was discharged from the NHI in 2008 after spending 15 months under observation.
