Because of her “heart illness”, Taiwanese singer, Angela Zhang Shaohan returned to Canada last week for a full body check-up and stopped all her artiste work at hand. According to the Taiwanese media, if Angela is unable to fulfil her schedule in April, she will lose millions of dollars that was forthcoming.

The day before, Angela called Linfair Records (her record company) Director, Wu Yifen to inform her about the check-up results. She expressed that she had been diagnosed with heart mitral valve prolapse and the doctors have suggested that she should go for an operation.

Wu Yifen revealed, “The condition causes her blood to leak backwards and thus resulting in her feeling uncomfortable at times. Although doctors have suggested that she should go for an operation, Angela said that she is going to seek a second opinion and if possible not go for an operation. She would rather rely on drugs to control her condition. We will respect her final decision.”

According to an interview with one of Linfair Recrods staff, Angela had some discomfort during an awards ceremony in Shanghai in January this year. She didn’t take to the stage in the end even though she won an award.”

The biggest impact is her Singapore concert which was scheduled for March but has been postponed to June instead. According to the Taiwanese media, Angela also has lots of commercials, promotion commitments in April. Add the promotion and marketing cost for her Singapore concert, the loss of possible revenue could run up to millions. All costs will however be covered by Linfield Records.

What is heart mitral valve prolapse? source

Mitral valve prolapse is a heart problem in which the valve that separates the left upper and lower chambers of the heart does not open and close properly.

The heart’s mitral valve helps blood on the left side of the heart flow in one direction. It closes to keep blood from moving backwards when the heart beats.

If the valve does not open and close properly it is called mitral valve prolapse. It can be caused by many different things. In most cases, it is harmless and patients usually do not know they have the problem. In a small number of cases, it can cause blood to leak backwards (severe mitral regurgitation). This needs to be treated with surgery.

Sensation of feeling the heart beat (palpitations)
Chest pain (not caused by coronary artery disease or a heart attack)
Hard to breath after activity
Fatigue
Cough
Shortness of breath when lying flat

Hope Angela's feeling better soon. She probably should go for the surgery while its safe. The heart is one of those organs you really don't want to wait til its to late to do something about it. Its sounds extremely uncomfortable and painful, but we gotta respect what she wants to do with her body.

Aww, she's super pretty and talented too.
