I have been raising funds for my medical treatments publicly since 2005. After two surgeries in Malaysia and seven surgeries at House Clinic in Los Angeles, I am now receiving treatments at the U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) as part of a clinical research program. Under this program, I visit the U.S. National Institute of Health every six months or sooner. Your contribution will help to cover my travel expenses.

Why I need to raise funds
NF tumors and the problems they cause require expert medical care. Unfortunately, I am uninsured and not insurable while Malaysia lacks the experience required for the long term care of patients with this genetic disorder. Besides, it is important to maintain my quality of life. My 61-year-old mother’s work prospects are limited. We depend on income derived from renting out bedrooms to nearby college students for our daily necessities. So I need to organize fundraising campaigns to pay for good healthcare locally and abroad. Poor treatments can leave me unable to take care of myself and instead become a burden to others. I must obtain the best treatment possible. with doctors familiar with my case history.
Is this Trust Fund tax deductible?
No, Yvonne Foong NF Trust is a personal fund solely for my healthcare needs. In order for a Fund to be tax deductible, a foundation must be established under law with a board of trustees governing the fund. It must also benefit a population rather than a sole individual. I do not have the resources for such massive undertakings.
