Twenty-seven-year-old mainland Chinese actress, Vionn Song (宋汶霏), who starred alongside Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) and Raymond Lam (林峰) from Growing Through Life <摘星之旅>,  passed away due to uterine cancer. She died in her Guangzhou residence on March 3 at 12:30 AM. Zhang Lingzhi (章齡之) broke the news of Vionn’s passing on her blog.

Vionn Song was born on May 30, 1985. She rose to stardom in 2008’s Dancer <舞者> and was well liked for her role in 2010 TVB series, Growing Through Life, where her character was involved in a complex love triangle with Bosco and Raymond.

It was revealed to the media that Vionn has been sick for a while and underwent chemotherapy treatment twice. However, due to her filming schedule, Vionn also delayed her treatment for 4 months.

Lingzhi Zhang and Vionn became close friends after filming Dancer <舞者> together. “When she first found out about illness, she had the time and opportunity to treat it. But she insisted on completing the shoot first and delayed treatment for 4 months. When she was ready to start the treatment, it was already too late. Vionn is an extremely strong girl. The last time I saw her was at my wedding. She was in good spirits at that time, chatting and laughing with the other guests.”

Lingzhi Zhang also shared that Vionn was adamant on completing the shoot because of her family’s financial situation. She was in need of money and could not take off from filming to treat her cancer. The last film that Vionn starred in was Looking for North <找北> in 2012.

      It is and there are many in the circle and in this world who are in a tough financial situation,so in many cases have to sacrifice their health and well being just for money to survive. Many that have never been through it will not understand…

    I just rewatched Growing Through Life recently and still remember her. Gosh, it is so sad but so sweet of her to sacrifice for her family, but she should have thought of her own health first. All of the money in the world cannot buy back your health.

    I lost a close friend due to colon cancer and it was because he did not have health insurance so he did not even know that he had cancer. When he finally found out about it, it was too late… It is so sad when you delay treatment for anything serious like cancer. May she rest in peace and be away from all of the pains and pressures of life. She was so young.

    Don’t know her, never saw her on any drama before.

    Rest In Peace. So sad to hear that actually this could be avoided if She had the treatment earlier. Remind me of Anita Mui situation.

    Very saddened to hear about her passing as she was such a young and pretty girl with endless opportunities. It really scares me that cancer can strike at any age and at any moment, even sometimes going undetected until it is too late.

    Rest in peace Vionn.

    She chose to delay treatment for her career but had she known this may cost her her life would she have chosen to be treated immediately? No matter what this is a very lovely person who died way, way too soon. I do enjoy watching her in GTL. I am most saddened by this news.

    A pity….she thought she had time, but at the end her time was up. If one has to choose money vs health especially like such terminal disease cancer, health should be the obvious choice because if you have health you’ll have the opportunity to earn the $$$$ back later. Should be a lesson to everyone to choose wisely.
