Dear Readers and Supporters, 亲爱的读者和支持我的人

The surgery on my lumbar spinal cord and my brachial plexus were very successful.
However my body condition was very weak after these two surgeries therefore I flew home on 1st Feb 2018 and rested over the Chinese New Year.


As most of you know, my initial plan was to raise funds for my arm surgery while lumbar spine and cervical spine treatment was out of my plan. We realized that my lumbar spine was in a more critical condition at a later stage, therefore we decided to treat it first and then my brachial plexus.


My surgeon and I had agreed to postpone my forearm and my unexpected cervical spine surgery to Sept-Oct 2018 but I decided to treat my cervical spine earlier and have it planned in April or May 2018 because I noticed the left side of my body started to feel numb.


As I do not have sufficient funds for this particular surgery, hence I am still raising funds via online contribution and selling my new book.

Past Surgeries

Surgeries were performed due to the urgency compared to the forearm surgery planned in 2017. 4CM large tumour in lumbar spine has caused walking problem, hence this surgery was performed first.

About Yvonne Foong 关于 Yvonne Foong

Heart4Hope profile picture bvy Yee Fan in 2010
My name is Yvonne Foong, I was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis type 2 when I was 16 years old with hearing and vision damaged. It causes tumors to grow anywhere in my brain, along the spinal cords and pheriphoral nerves. So far I have had 20 different surgeries to safely remove the tumors whenever needed to preserve my life. I wrote a book about myself called “I’m not sick, just abit unwell” and soon my second book will be published too. Please follow my news in this blog or you may follow me via my FB.

我的名字叫Yvonne Foong, 我在16岁的时候罹患了神经纤维瘤病2型。我有听觉和视觉的障碍。 次病导致我的一生当中会有许多肿瘤不断的在我的脑子,脊椎以及神经系统增长而且无法治愈。 为了能够延续生命,我已经动过多大20次的手术并且安全的移除肿瘤。 我曾出版一本自传名叫“我没有生病,只是有点儿不舒服” 而且我的第二本书也即将印刷。若您有兴趣知道我的近况您可以时常到我的博客和Facebook.
