Martial Arts Legend Gordon Liu's Health Condition Deteriorating Following Stroke
In August 2011, Gordon Liu, Hong Kong martial arts legend and star of The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Kill Bill 1 & 2 plus numerous other classic films, suffered a major stroke that left him completely paralyzed on the right side of his body.
It appears that his condition has deteriorated over time and now he is not talking or moving as well as he was six months ago. Since the stroke, he has lost almost 20kg in weight. The Hong Kong media has also reported that he has used up most of his savings on medical therapy, and is considering selling his only property (his old home) to cover the costs of ongoing treatment.
Mr. Liu recently allowed a visit at the hospital by reporters from Hong Kong's Ming Pao Daily. During the visit, he could only nod and shake his head and move his left arm in response to the questions. When asked whether he was happy, he nodded. Below are some pictures that were taken by Ming Pao Daily and HK Channel.
I hope that Mr Liu will stay happy and that he will start showing signs of improvement very soon.
