Diagnosed with Systemic Sclerosis and Pulmonary Hypertension, Mdm Haslina relies on the use of a Personal Mobility Device to get around and long term oxygen therapy to cope with her worsening symptoms such as severe fatigue, chest pain, heart palpitations and shortness of breath.With the help of Heart To Heart Fund, she received a portable oxygen concentrator which provides her added mobility and allows her to continue giving hope to others by supporting fellow patients who face similar health challenges.Read her full story and other hopeful stories here.
At 30 years old, Andy Peh was diagnosed with heart failure. His heart condition deteriorated and he was on the verge of death. A Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD), which helps his heart pump blood to the rest of his body, was his only chance of survival.
Andy could not afford the surgery. With three school-going children and barely any income, his future looked bleak.
Thankfully, with assistance from the Heart To Heart Fund, Andy was given a new lease of life, fulfilling his chance of living his dream – to be with his family.
For philanthropy to come full circle, the support of donors like you, is crucial. For without them, financially burdened patients may not stand a second chance at life.
Because you gave
At NHCS, we raise funds for the NHCS Heart To Heart Fund and the Cardiovascular Sciences Academic Medical Programme (CVS ACP). The former supports patient care such as aiding financially needy patients and subsidising the cost of new treatment modalities, whilst the latter aims to advance research and education in heart care and possibly enjoys a one-for-one matching.
With ischaemic heart diseases being the third principle cause of death in Singapore, the waiting list for help grows longer each day.
'Every drop makes an ocean', each gift counts and no matter what the amount is, it has the power to create effects much grander than the original scale – this is the ripple effect.
