26 Aug – TV personality Bob Lam Chi Po recently revealed that he has received a lot of help from fellow celebrities ever since his wife's health situation made the news.
As reported on Mingpao, the TV presenter whose wife Shirley was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma (LMS) a few months before he was revealed to have failed to get his TVB contract renewed, stated that many people in the circle reached out to help him, including veteran actress Liza Wang.
Said Bob, Liza secretly stashed a stack of HKD 1,000 bills in a box of mooncakes that she sent him during the previous Mid-Autumn Festival, which temporarily helped him solve his financial difficulties and wife's medical expenses.
Bob also stated that actor and HK Performing Artiste Guild Chairman Louis Koo also would contact him from time to time to ask him about his wife's health and even introduced them to a private doctor.
"He told me not to worry about the consultation fee, and that we could just leave after seeing the doctor," he said.
It is noted that Shirley, who had finished her chemotherapy at the end of last year, had to be admitted to the hospital again a few days ago.
