Yesterday, a friend of mine visited me at home and told me that someone had publicly questioned my integrity on Facebook, referring to my foundation fund raising. This happened sometime in April 2016 when I had just returned from three major surgeries in US. At that time, I was struggling to adapt and adjust to my newly damaged vision so I could not read anything. Plus, I was extremely fatigued and slept most of the day. When my friend cautioned me , I felt a little troubled but mostly surprised because I was raising funds using products that were originally meant for my own medical costs. I was merely diverting the funds to help others instead.
So I spent my quiet time alone introspecting and decided for myself that, if the public absolutely doubts my integrity, I am prepared to pass on the funds that I have raised for my foundation project, to another existing charity so it can use them to help NF patients instead.
This charitable society, however, does not have the means or resources to help complicated and critical NF cases get lifesaving treatments. No local entity does, which is why I am attempting to build a foundation for that purpose.
Although it is limited in its ability to help complicated cases, it can assist the mild ones. At the time of writing this post, I have in my hand, RM40,000 meant for building my intended foundation. If the public absolutely doubts, I am willing to let it go.
I can still assist other NF patients in non-monetary manners like I always have been doing. Money is not important to me. Love is.
