A woman has revealed her late husband wrote 19 birthday cards for their young daughter before dying of cancer.

Ms Chu, from Taiwan's south-western port city of Tainan, shared the touching story on Facebook .

Images shared by the woman show the 19 envelopes signed by her late husband during his final weeks battling terminal liver cancer in 2006.

Ms Chu revealed in her post: "My daughter was born in January 2005 and her father died of liver cancer in May 2006 when she was just one year and four months.

"Despite struggling against the illness during his final month, he wrote down one by one these future blessings for his daughter.

"From 2007 for her second birthday, until 2025 when she turns 20.

"But she was still too young, so I kept them for her. I wanted to give them to her when she was older.

"She's now in secondary school and has been living in the school dormitory while I work in mainland China."

Ms Chu, who now works in China's capital Beijing, then addressed her daughter, now aged 14, saying: "I'm leaving again tomorrow, so I'm leaving these letters to you.

Ms Chu found the letters but never opened them because her late husband wrote them for their daughter

"I've never opened them and never wanted to, because your late father left these letters for you, to send you messages that transcend time and space."

She revealed that her husband was diagnosed with late-stage liver cancer when their child was one year and four months old.

They travelled to mainland hoping to get a transplant, but one year later he died.
