An art auction in aid of Macao martial arts hero Master Eddy Murphy, who is being treated for bone cancer in Guangzhou, raised nearly a quarter-of-a-million patacas to help pay his medical bills.

Marreiros said that he was grateful to the artists who donated their artworks, and thanked all the purchasers, adding that nearly 30 pieces were sold within 45 minutes. Marreiros said he hopes that Master Eddy Murphy will recover soon and promote his martial arts techniques in Macao once again.

Marreiros also presented an artwork titled Tribute to Master Eddie Murphy to Hugo Almeida, which had been purchased by an anonymous bidder who wanted to give it to Master Eddie Murphy who is undergoing further treatment in Guangzhou after a bone marrow transplant.
