Black Tie International:
The "Walk in My Shoes" Luncheon

Amanda Schumacher & Ginny Myette Vanderwende

Amanda Schumacher hosted a Luncheon
on May 19 at her home. 
The Walk in My Shoes Luncheon was presented by the
Tree of Life Foundation International
to Raise Funds for Vietnamese Neurofibromatosis
 Patient’s Surgery



Palm Beach, FL – Amanda Schumacher, President and Founder of Tree of Life Foundation International, Palm Beach, FL, hosted Walk in My Shoes Luncheon on May 19 at her residence. Proceeds from the event will benefit Tree of Life Foundation International’s medical branch, supporting 100 percent of the surgery for Hai Nguyen, a young man who lives in Vietnam. Since a very early age, Nguyen has been afflicted with neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder of the nervous system that causes tumors to grow on nerves.

After learning about Nguyen’s medical situation, representatives of Tree of Life Foundation International contacted Dr. McKay McKinnon, a renowned Chicago-based plastic surgeon. Dr. McKinnon is willing to take his medical team to Vietnam to perform this very high-risk surgery.

Dr. McKinnon has performed many tumor removal surgeries, including an 18-hour surgery in 2000, when he operated on a woman with a 200-pound tumor. The event drew worldwide attention.   In 2004, McKinnon traveled to Romania, along with 12 other doctors, to perform a 10-hour operation to remove an 80-pound tumor from a 47-year-old woman. The woman suffers from a genetic disorder causing tumors to grow on her body.

Some of his surgical contributions have been presented on The Learning Channel, Discovery Health Channel and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

If you would like to donate for this cause and be a part of this life changing experience, please visit our website at or give us a call at 561-833-1533.

Tree of Life Foundation International is very thankful to our Grand sponsor BRIO Tuscan Grille at The Gardens Mall.  Luncheon supporters are Saks Fifth Avenue - Palm Beach Gardens, and Paris in Town Café.
