According to the latest issue of the News Mirror Weekly, Taiwanese well-known actor, comedian and TV show host Chu Ke-liang is battling other cancers as the bowel cancer cells in his body have spread to other area of the body.
Chu had been diagnosed as having stage II colon cancer in May, 2014, but he refused to have a surgery because he knew after the treatment he would need to have a colostomy and an attached colostomy bag and he thought it would be inconvenient during work. So he opted to receive traditional Chinese medical treatment while he was busy with his TV and acting work.
However, he fell very ill and decided to have a surgery to treat his colon cancer at the National Taiwan University (NTU) Hospital on September 6. The operation was announced as a success.
On Oct. 11, Chu held a press conference to thank Dr. Liang Jin-tung and his team for treating him and saving his life in September. [FULL STORY]
