Joey Yung(容祖兒) Talks About Her Ailing Mom's Fight With Cancer

During the New Year's "CRHK Chik Chak Ultimate Song Chart Awards Ceremony(叱咤樂壇流行榜頒獎典禮)", singer Joey Yung(容祖兒) revealed her mom had stage 3 cancer in the past year between April till September. Fortunately, her mom is getting better and she is on her road to recovery.

According to reports, Joey turned down 10 million dollars worth of jobs to stay close to her ailing mother. She also spent million of dollars to hire an Oncologist from America to treat her mom. At the same time, knowing her mom is a devout Buddhist, she actively researched Buddhist teachings and practices to help bless her mom and to clear her mind from negative thoughts. She even brought her mom to India to see His Holiness 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.

All along, Joey had always kept her Buddhist belief a low profile. But in December of 2014, she prominently appeared at a Buddhist event as a guest and performed the song titled "The Heart Sutra(心經)". "They invited me to be the performing guest at the event, I do feel it's fate for me to be closed to Buddhism. In fact, my mom and I are both leaning toward the teaching of Buddhism. I even transcribed Buddhist sutras in my spare time. I even released the song "The Heart Sutra(心經)" in my album, just don't know if anyone knows, " she said.

Joey dropped everything to stay close and to take care of her mom
