Hi everybody, This is Yvonne reporting from Los Angeles, USA! I arrived safely on 1st Dec 2017. The flight was eventful. Thank goodness I met Dr Lekovic my neurosurgeon this morning for pre-operative appointment and discussion. Prior to that, I also met Dr Te the internist that will look after me in the ward. As most of you might have read about this already in my blog, I mentioned that while I was raising funds for my arms surgery, my spine condition deteriorated rapidly and require more urgent attention than my arm. Hence this Thursday morning we will be treating my spine first. We will be removing a large tumour from my lumbar spinal cord. It is already causing my leg to be very weak. If surgery is not done soon, it will affect my ability to walk.

My this spine surgery is going to cost me USD40k. I have released my second book entitled “A Life Worth Living”.

Selling this book will help me to pay for my spine surgery.

Will you assist? You may check out my new books here:

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.
