Edmund Chen Spent 8 Years Searching For A Treatment For His Son Yixi, Who Was Partially Blind In One Eye Due To An Infection
The family couldn’t come to terms with what had happened as Yixi became partially blind in one eye from a corneal infection that worsened overnight.
There’s no question that Edmund Chen and Xiang Yun are fantastic parents to their kids, Yixi, 30, and Yixin, 21. But one incident that happened to Yixi years ago when he was a teenager still causes Edmund to get extremely emotional: the day that Edmund was afraid that his son would lose his eye.
The 60-year-old former Mediacorp actor was recently a guest on LOVE 972’s Breakfast Quartet, where he chatted with the show’s four hosts — Chen Biyu, Dennis Chew, Marcus Chin and Mark Lee — about fatherhood for a Father’s Day Special. Previous celeb guests who regaled listeners with their stories about being a dad include Wang Lei and Henry Thia.
