Sharon Chan Battles Kidney Inflammation and SLE?
Sudden Weekly claimed that after Sharon Chan (陳敏之) fractured her collarbone last year, she was plagued by acute kidney inflammation. It is also rumored that Sharon has contracted Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), which is an immune system disorder that requires long-term treatment. On July 20, 2012, Sharon Chan was photographed at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Hong Kong, seated at the bench of the outpatient ward. Wearing a mask and a pair of chunky black glasses, Sharon reportedly was trying to conceal her identity.
Perhaps not wishing to be recognized, Sharon allegedly lowered her head while playing with her phone during the waiting time. She only looked up once when there was a commotion. She reportedly quickly covered her face with her hair when she realized someone had spotted her. While waiting for approximately half an hour, Sharon reportedly was called upon by the nurse to the doctor’s office.
Sharon Paid a High Price for “Ghetto Justice”
While Sharon is remembered vividly for her topless run in Ghetto Justice <怒火街頭> last year, she reportedly paid a high price for the memorable role. She fractured her collarbone after filming the chasing scene, and then shortly after, she was reportedly stricken with acute kidney inflammation. Recent photos revealed that her face was swollen, as compared to her past photos. It was also rumored that she was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), and needed to seek long-term treatment.
As the sole breadwinner of the family, Sharon allegedly worked very hard from day to night. She even took on filming of four dramas in one year! Since diagnosed with kidney inflammation and SLE, she reportedly stopped working and rested for half a year. As the financial pillar of the family, Sharon allegedly has no choice but to resume her work recently.
A medical staff of the hospital disclosed that Sharon’s illness was unpredictable, and there were complications arising from the disorders with the immune system. Sharon reportedly needed to return to the hospital for a blood and liver test every two months to control her illness. The medical staff also revealed that Sharon needs to seek long term treatment, and if she were treated at the private hospital, the medical expenses would be very expensive.
Sharon Denies Contracting SLE
Sharon appeared to be very irritated when she was asked if she contracted SLE. “I did have kidney inflammation, but it was 10 years ago! I have already recovered, and do not need to take any medication. I only went for my normal follow-up appointment and ensure that health is good,” said Sharon.
Sharon also clarified that she did not contracted SLE, “I already responded before, I do not have such an illness! It’s only due to a weak immune system. It’s not a crime to be sick! Now that you have seen me slimming down, you know that I have recovered. When I filmed Justice Attack <法網狙擊>, there were so many explosive scenes. If I am sick, how do I endure all these? Now, I exercise and slim down a lot.”
Sharon Saves Up for Family
In order to save more money for the family and her younger brother’s education, Sharon seeks treatment at the public hospital instead. She said, “I am not a spendthrift, and I have recovered. Since it’s only a check-up, I will just go to the public hospital. I am the financial pillar of the family. My brother will graduate from Polytechnic next year, and recently, I am keen to buy an apartment in Tseung Kwan O for my mother. I will need to pay for two apartments so I have to save up!”
Sharon is Touched by Family’s Support
While battling with illness, Sharon revealed that she was touched by her family’s support. She said, “Illness is not the scariest thing. The scariest is when there is no one at your side. I was terrified initially when I was sick, worrying that we can’t survive with zero income. It was lucky that the advertisers were so nice; they did not abandon me. After surviving this ordeal, I realize that if the family is united, there is nothing we cannot go through. My mother took care of me day and night, and my brother even bought a teddy bear to encourage me to relax. I am touched by these gestures!”
