Always exhibiting his good humor, comedian, Cheung Tat Ming (張達明) faces cancer with optimism. Since the media exposed his illness and photographed him with significant hair and weight loss, Tat Ming posted his experiences, thoughts and feelings towards cancer on Weibo.
“Cancer Warrior” Tat Ming posted a couple of his recent pictures, assuring the public that he was doing well. In one picture, Tat Ming wrote the words, “I’m okay. I’m still handsome!” Tat Ming wore a cap to cover his hair loss due to chemotherapy. Although he lost significant weight and had a dull complexion, Tat Ming’s humor shines through, showing his unwavering spirit as a cancer survivor.
Reported to have lost 30 pounds, Tat Ming ’s optimistic approach in facing cancer was maintaining a battling heart, patience and peacefulness. In addition, Tat Ming indicated that one must sustain a healthy diet and disregard onlookers.
The Most Miraculous Medicine
On his Weibo blog, Tat Ming showed his gratification toward his friends, who had supported him throughout his battle with cancer. After going through a difficult treatment, Tat Ming is currently in recovery stage.
“When faced with illness, I finally understand the fragility of a person. One cannot cope with illness alone. I would like to thank my doctors, treatment specialist, and nurses: you earn 100 points for your professionalism! Add in 100 points for your care, and another 100 points for your positive energy! Due to your nurture, a lot of my pain was eliminated during treatment. Of course, the most important is my family’s care and companionship. This is the most miraculous medicine. Many thanks to my family and friends’ support,” Tat Ming wrote in his blog.
Tat Ming Experiences Platinum Neurotoxicity
Cheung Tat Ming referred to his platinum-based chemotherapy drug treatment, which caused his blood to contain 63 times more platinum levels than the average person. He wrote humorously, “When I go out to eat now, it is no longer a problem if I forget my wallet. I just give them two drops of my blood and that should be sufficient to pay the bill. HaHa. ‘Platinum Man’ may actually better than Iron Man!”
Tat Ming pointed out that his nervous system was affected by the excessive amount of platinum in the body. This caused numbness in Tat Ming’s extremities, which limits his mobility. With a month of detoxification treatment, the platinum levels in Tat Ming’s body has been reduced by half, resulting in greater mobility.
Focusing on the Future
Aside from the jobs that he had planned earlier, Tat Ming’s intends to fully rest. Tat Ming hoped that adequate rest would provide him with the ability to work in the future in his best condition and creativity. He stressed, “I will be back!… SOON!”
