Hongkong director John Woo aka the man behind classic action movies Hardboiled, A Better Tomorrow and Mission: Impossible 2 has always had the support of his wife Annie, whom he has been married to for 44 years.

In 2011, when John was diagnosed with stage 3 lymphoid cancer, Annie stood by him and even sold their only house in Beijing to raise funds for John’s treatment. In interviews then, Annie shared that receiving John’s diagnosis was the first time she came face to face with death and she had described the experience as both frightening and unnerving.
