Yesterday, someone in Shenzhen, China channelled USD 30 towards my upcoming surgery. She is a yoga teacher and she conducted a special class just to raise funds for my surgery. Prior to this, she also channeled USD 40.10 as a personal donation for my surgery too!

I am so touched to hear about this because she is someone living far away and I have never met her before. Thank you so much, Xiao Fang! May you continue to inspire others to do good.

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.
