Former Pres. Noynoy Aquino Did Not Agree to Undergo Kidney Transplant
NOYNOY AQUINO – Former President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III initially refused to undergo a kidney transplant due to this reason.
Former President Noynoy Aquino’s death shocked a lot of people including his family and friends. Only a few knows about the health condition of the former President but they also did not expect that it will really lead to his death. The former Chief Executive was undergoing dialysis due to a kidney problem and he was set for a kidney transplant.
Also called as PNoy, the former President served as the 15th president of the Republic of the Philippines from 2010 to 2016. After he stepped down from office, he was out from the public’s eye thus many people were clueless of what he was going through. He has always been a silent and very simple man.
It was only last June 24, 2021, the day of his death, when the public knew about the health condition of the former President. He died of renal disease secondary to diabetes.
Former Pres. Noynoy Aquino was actually set for a kidney transplant according to the people close to him. He even underwent angioplasty as a preparation for it. Sadly, his death came ahead of his surgery.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, former Pres. Noynoy Aquino initially refused to undergo a kidney transplant. According to former Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares, the former President initially did not agree to it as he felt like he’s depriving some person of something.
“But sa kakakumbinse sa kanya na ‘hindi mo naman siya dine-deprive. In fact parang tinutulungan mo pa nga siya.’ Sa huli nakumbinse na siya,” Jacinto-Henares said.
According to his family and the people who took care of the former President, it was a peaceful death for him. He was found in his reclining chair in the same position that he was when Yolly, his aide, left him in his room the night before.
