Yvonne receiving a cheque from Sharon Green

I was in the city of Subang Jaya to collect a cheque of RM3,000.00 for A Celebration of Life Foundation this morning. Above is a photograph of myself and Sharon Green who presented the cheque to me. This money will be added to a group pledge. The contributor is unable to write a pledge of her own, hence she’s passing me the cash upfront to be added to the pool. Thank you, Sharon Green, for meeting up with me.

Yvonne Foong

As a child, Yvonne Foong dreamed of growing up to help others. To achieve her ambition, she began studying to become a psychologist. But things changed when tumours were discovered in her body at the age of sixteen. She was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 2 -- a genetic illness with no cure. Fighting for survival, Yvonne turned to fundraising and embarked on a medical odyssey to the United States. Her experiences since then have transformed her into a motivational speaker; inspiring hope, faith and strength. Yvonne is currently working to establish a humanitarian foundation that provides NF patients in Malaysia with financial and logistical support. Visit Works of Gratitude to learn more.
