Yvonne Foong’s intent is to spread awareness of Neurofibromatosis Type 2, yet she offers so much more to the reader. Her compelling account of the challenges she faces provides important insights into the manifestations of an unpredictable disorder. Her relentless search for information and appropriate care leads her down many paths in Malaysia and America.
With courage and determination Yvonne develops coping skills that allow her to overcome many obstacles. Like many people who have NF2, she finds it necessary to alter plans for her future and pursue other dreams. Now, as a skilled freelance writer, she tells her story with candor and humor.
Yvonne was chosen as the Most Outstanding Youth of the Year at the 2005 Dream Malaysia Awards.
“The second and latest edition of my book. Contains minor editing and a catchy new cover with my photo as a toddler. My father snapped this photo of me prior to suffering a brain hemorrhage when I was three. This photo cannot be reproduced, just as my dad’s brain trauma cannot be reversed.”
