"I can finally play badminton and smash the shuttlecock. In the future, I want to learn how to drive a car and ride a motorcycle. I have the confidence to live a normal life."

The journey of treatment has been long for Fong Yu Ming, a shy young boy with a 90-degree scoliosis. After undergoing a series of examinations and having the spinal cord fluid drained through surgery, everything was prepared. Finally, on May 9th, he underwent spinal correction surgery, which was successful. Fong Yu Ming was discharged from the hospital on May 12th and returned home for recovery.

Scoliosis correction surgery is a major operation. After undergoing extensive tests, it was confirmed that Fong Yu Ming had spinal cord fluid accumulation. Therefore, back on November 15th of last year, doctors already performed the procedure to drain the fluid. Following the surgery, he needed to rest and be observed for his recovery progress. Fortunately, his recovery has been good, leading to the arrangement of the spinal correction surgery.

Fong Yu Ming, from Kulim, Kedah, waited patiently for many years until the operation finally came. The surgery lasted nearly 4 hours, and he will need about 3 months of recovery before he can return to school. However, for the time being, he is advised not to lift heavy objects. Currently, he has grown taller and become thinner.

Single mother Lu Yue Zhen expressed that she has always taught her child to be a kind person and to contribute to society. In the future, if they have the ability, they should also perform acts of kindness to give back to society, expressing gratitude for the assistance from kind-hearted individuals.

Recently, she visited ONE HOPE CHARITY together with her child to express gratitude to the generous individuals who provided assistance, giving her child a chance for a rebirth.

Since the age of 4, Fong Yu Ming has suffered from neck tilt, which was later diagnosed as Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) at the age of 12. His spine has curved 90 degrees in a C-shape. Moreover, the more challenging aspect was that the child had spinal cord fluid accumulation, which needed to be cleared before the spinal correction surgery could be performed.
