Yvoone Foong, a blind-deaf Neurofibromatosis type 2 patient, an incurable disorder that makes tumours grow in all her life. Undergone 20 neurosurgeries & now need to remove tumours from her forearm, brachial plexus, lumbar spine and cervical spinal cord
I cannot become incapacitated, my mother will be helpless if I lose the ability to take care of myself. Last year, I had brain surgery at the US NIH, the surgery was done well. However, I was not taken cared of well in the ward. My vision became damaged as a result, I have had to adapt by getting help from people to do my work and in order to stay productive, while my mother started having to prepare my daily living needs despite her advanced age. So I must go for surgery with doctors who can do better to save my arms before it is too late.
