Former TVB Luye Wu Bojun suffers from ALS and relies on his polio-stricken wife to take care of him and worries about running out of savings

In the “Ice Bucket Challenge” a few years ago, many celebrities did not pour cold water on their heads, waiting for the outside world to pay attention to the rare disease “Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis” (ALS) and commonly known as ALS. After the boom, what is the point of social support for the sick?

A group of people who care about the disabled held a press conference a few days ago, urging the government to provide financial and emotional support to the families of the disabled. One of the carers who shared the difficulties of life at the meeting turned out to be the wife of former TVB actor Luye Bo Jun (Wu Bo Jun).

Mrs Wu, aged 61, suffers from congenital poliomyelitis​​​​​​ and multiple eye diseases, which make her mobility very inconvenient. Four years ago, Bo Jun, who had always been in good health, found that he could not perform subtle movements such as bending over to hold objects, brushing his teeth, etc., and even fell out of balance. Therefore, he ‘i was admitted to hospital for examination and found to be suffering from “gradual frostbite”. The doctor noted that Bo Jun’s condition will worsen and his functions will gradually deteriorate, and Bo Jun’s condition is indeed deteriorating. In recent years, he has been bedridden for a long time and he can only eat liquid food.

Based on her physical condition, Bo Jun used to take care of Mrs. Wu, but when Bo Jun fell ill, Mrs. Wu became the caretaker. The daily activities such as helping Bo Jun to go to bed and take a shower have already made Mrs. Wu, who is 5 feet tall, very hard. Three years ago, she had to ask a domestic helper abroad take care of her. But Mrs. Wu quit her job in order to take good care of her husband. In addition to the expenses of hiring a foreign domestic helper, she needed to use her savings every month, which made Mrs. Wu feel stressed and even have to see a psychiatrist. Mrs Wu said bluntly that she was trying to fall to the point of “hitting her head against the wall”.
