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

I have to go for surgery again in November 2017 to remove several large tumors from my arms before they cause serious harm. To raise the fund to pay for it, I did a ballet performance in July at the PJ Civic Center. Please watch the video below and contribute in any amount you can. Thanks!
今年的11月,我又要准备动手术了。 这一次是我的双手在还没造成严重的问题前需要切除几颗比较大的肿瘤。 为了募款我在台上跳了一支芭蕾舞。 请您观看一下的视频。 感恩,谢谢!

About Yvoone Foong 关于 Yvoone Foong
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 on this blog or you may follow me via my FB.

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.
