Let us Malaysians shower our compassion and generosity in helping those who are unfortunate and in distress. There is a sweet girl by the name of Yvonne Foong. She is also a blogger and is only 22. Yvonne Foong discovered she had a rare genetic disease at 16. Doctors told her she had neurofibromatosis type 2 that causes benign tumours to grow in her brain, spine and along her peripheral nerves. The disease is incurable.
Yvonne has survived several surgeries to remove tumours - one on her spine and the rest on her brain. She is now semi-paralysed on her face, deaf, partially blind, has poor balance and a stiff right leg. Yvonne who blogs (www.yvonnefoong.com) and is the author of I’m Not Sick, Just A Bit Unwell, (picture), has been raising money on her own to pay for her operations.
Right now she needs to undergo yet another surgery. Yvonne is losing her eyesight. The operation is due in December and once again she needs to raise funds for it. The cost of the surgery is USD44,000 (RM154,770) and the cost of her hospital stay for two weeks is USD915 or RM3219. "She has already raised RM10,000 of this but obviously still has a long way to go. She's hoping to raise the rest by republishing her book I'm Not Sick, Just A Little Bit Unwell in English and Chinese. The books are now available in Malaysian bookshops and from her website store. She is also selling T-shirts at bazaars and via her web site store.
You can read about her surgery and donate to her fund here."You can also help by sending on this meme.

I love Norah Jones' debut album, Come Away With Me. However, her 2nd album didn't spark my interest that much. Her latest album, "Not Too Late" includes one of my favourite song there, "Thinking About You". And now.... waiting for her new album, "The Fall" by November 17, 2009.
