I want to emphasize on this Number 1 survival skill for Neurofibromatosis patients. I will say it quick and straight to point so it hits home.

The first thing to do is find a surgeon who can remove a specific tumor safely.

Remove the tumor surgically once and for all safely.

Neurosurgical skills today is already very advanced, can do almost anything. Just need to find the right surgeon. Radiation is a second best option in most situations.

Do not fear pain, be brave, because the fear of pain will not help you to survive. This is my survival skill I learned from my own life experience as an NF2 patient.


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.
