According to a Hong Kong magazine, 90’s-era actress, Jacqueline Law, is recovering from 6 months of chemotherapy. Diagnosed with stage 3 cancer last year, the actress suffered from depression and contemplated suicide. A former girlfriend of Stephen Chow, Law married Singapore businessman Liu Chee Ming in 2008. Law is deaf in one ear due to a diving accident. Law’s father died of lung cancer in 1998 and Liu’s ex-wife also died of cancer, so the word ‘cancer’ is taboo between the couple. Law is thought to have NPC, Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma.
