Full Frame Close Up: Love and Wushu

Full Frame

Two decades ago, Helen Liang lay in her hospital bed in despair after being told that she had only two weeks to live. As a master in Chinese Wushu (“Wushu” translates to “martial arts” in English), she was trained to overcome obstacles, but this was by the far the most challenging and heartbreaking moment of her life.

She was determined to fight the death sentence handed to her by the oncologist. With the unwavering love of her parents, traditional Chinese medicine and a daily regimen of tai chi and qigong, she defied the odds.

Some people may call her recovery a miracle, but to the people in Helen’s life, it was a far more meaningful and personal journey.
