Yvonne wishes everyone a Merry Christmas from St. Vincent medical centre in Los Angeles. May you be blessed richly for the loved you have given me. This picture was taken just for the after Dr Lekovic removed two 4cm tumours from my lumbar spinal cord two weeks ago. I could still stand tall, thanks for your giving. Tall here means 141 cm. 🙂

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.
