Rock4Hope Charity Concert

Rock4Hope is a charity concert organized to raise funds for the surgery of 20-year-old 2005 Dream Malaysia Awards winner, Yvonne Foong, to remove a tumor in the brain. The Mass Communication student of Life College was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 2, a rare and incurable genetic disorder which causes tumors to grow in her brain, spine and along peripheral nerves. Three major surgeries have passed since the diagnosis four years ago, but many tumors in Yvonne's body still needs to be removed. The tumors damage random nerves as they grow. Yvonne, who spends her time studying and writing freelance articles for local dailies, is currently in need of funds to remove a brain tumor called Acoustic Neuroma that had made her deaf in both ears. The avid classical singer and pianist she once was, is now living in a world of silence. You can make a difference to the life of this plucky young adult, by giving her the hope of hearing again. Besides removing the tumor, the amount raised will be used to purchase an Auditory Brainstem Implant, the only hearing aid in the world suitable for her condition due to the adsence of hearing nerves to the brain.
