Save Yvonne's Sight Meme

23 year old Yvonne Foong has neurofibromatosis (NF), a condition that leaves her riddled with tumours. These tumours have made her deaf. New ones now threaten her sight.

Yvonne lives just down the road from me. I'm starting this meme to help her raise funds and to raise awareness about NF.

Yvonne lives in Malaysia. While doctors there can't help, surgeons in the US at St. Vincent Medical Center treated previous tumours that threatened to blind her. They say they can save her sight this time too. Her operation is scheduled between 1 and 4 December 2009. As Yvonne is uninsured, the problem is $$$.

Surgery price is USD44,000 or RM154,770
Stay for both mom and Yvonne at the hospital for two weeks USD915 or RM3219

She has raised about RM10,000 of this and is hoping to raise the rest by republishing her book "I'm not sick; I'm just a bit unwell" in English and Chinese. The books are now available in Malaysian bookshops and from her web site store. She is also selling T-shirts at bazaars and via her web site store.

You can help by buying from Yvonne's online store at

More details about her surgery are posted at Yvonne blogs regularly at

I hope you - who have not bee n tagged could also help Yvonne by spreading this meme to your side of the world. Thank you!
