In 2002, Andrea suffered liver failure and almost died after consuming weight-loss pills Slim 10.
To save her, Pierre donated part of his liver to Andrea, making history in the process as it was the first liver transplant involving a non-related living donor that was allowed by the Ministry of Health.
Statistically, transplant patients have a 20-year life expectancy post-surgery but we’re happy to report that Andrea is doing really well.
In his Instagram post, Pierre wrote: “Today marks our 20th year #posttransplant. I have been asked numerous times what the reason was for me to become her organ donor.”
His answer? “It was simple — I couldn’t see my life without her!”
Pierre’s sweet sweet answer surely warmed the cockles of the internet’s heart and their celeb pals also joined in to send the couple their blessings.
Desmond Tan, who tied the knot with his girlfriend of 12 years last December, also applauded Pierre for “Always [being] an inspiration!”
