Link: NF Makes Me Stronger

NF Makes Me Stronger ( is the blog of Yvonne Foong, a Malaysian Chinese who was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF-2), an autosomal dominant genetic condition that is associated with multiple neurological tumours and is thankfully less commonly seen.

(Irrelevant) Mention neurofibromatosis to any medical student and what leaps to mind is [the diagnostic criteria of] Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF-1), previously known as von Recklinghausen’s disease. NF-2 is different.

NF Makes Me Stronger provides for an amazing read. The author writes frankly, intelligently and well, has done and is doing a great deal of reading up on her condition, diagnostic and treatment modalities. It’s tremendous.
