Taiwanese singer Miu Chu succumbs to breast cancer

KUALA LUMPUR: Taiwanese singer Miu Chu died after losing her battle with breast cancer on Sunday. She was 40.

According to AsiaOne, her family confirmed the unfortunate news on Monday via Facebook.

The post read: “Miu Chu, who was always laughing and brought positive energy to everyone with her music, left us peacefully on July 3.”

“She had always worked very hard whether in her work or life. Her family members are still grieving over her loss and there are still many other things to deal with.

“I know that you must have a lot to say to Miu. We will announce the details of her memorial service later. Please understand,” it said.

Miu, who was the champion of the third season of Taiwanese music competition Super Idol in 2009, had been inactive on social media since April 23.

According to news reports, she first made her battle with breast cancer public during a press conference for her album, Seize The Day, early last year.

During the event, she said: “Imperfections in life can also be perfect if you see it from a different angle. It allows me to understand the importance of health and allows me to face everything with courage.”

Last October, the singer attended a Pink Ribbon event organised during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and talked about spreading awareness about the disease in her social media posts.

“Regardless of age, always be mindful of your body. Take good care of it and it will repay you with health and energy,” she said.

She added: “Over the years, I have participated in some charity events, but today’s occasion is the first time it really feels close to my heart. I am a girl who loves to perform. I am a singer, I am part of the Pink Ribbon.”
