When asked on his thoughts after visiting the patients, Jackie shared that he has met many ill-health children around the world. Although it used to be a very heart-wrenching experience, he now wants to use his influence as a celebrity to motivate the kids.
“I want to let them know that there are people besides their family members, who do care about them. I hope to give them strength, even if it is just for a day,” he reiterated.
An indirect victim of cancer (Jackie’s father Charles Chan died from prostate cancer), the 61-year-old also wished that money spent on building arms would be used for medical researches instead.
“Given today’s scientific advancement, human beings are able to travel to space. We can even go to Mars. Nothing is impossible these days. How is it that a cure for cancer has not been found after so many years?” Jackie pointed out.
