According to Asian Universe, speaking to the media at the post-party event after the awards, Joey, who won Female Singer Silver Award, stated, “It’s in the past now. We have fought a victorious battle.”
After revealing that her mother was diagnosed with cancer last year in her winning speech at the Chik Chak Ultimate Song Chart Awards recently, Hong Kong diva Joey Yung later assured that Mrs. Yung is now in the process of recovery.
“I didn’t plan on telling people about it before as patients should not go through such pressure,” said Joey, adding that she only decided to talk about it after her mother regained her health.
Joey also revealed that they discovered the illness when she was doing a show for Ronald Ng last year.
She said “It was already in the third stage. When I knew it about it, I knew my mum needed me and work can come after. She took care of me all this time and at that moment, I had to do what a daughter must do.”
Joey stated that her mother took more than four months to recover, and within the period, the singer had turned down a lot of jobs to be with her, losing an estimated amount of HKD 10 million (approximately USD 1.29 million).
