The TV recording went on air today!  I was so excited to see myself on a part of Today Show, NBC!  Hurray for what!? 3 seconds!  let me remind you, the recording took place an hour after I was done with my 4 hours chemotherapy last Wednesday.   Those who missed: here is the LINK to the segment!

I had a message to deliver to breast cancer patients and their supporters that we didn’t have to be depressed all the time while dealing with the cancer.  Yes, my cancer is a huge threat for me and I fear.  I wish I did not have to go though this.  But if I have to deal with it anyway, I wanted to show that I didn’t have to be depressed all the time and fashion can give a hand to lift me up from time to time.  This in turn, gives chances for patient’s supporters to approach them in positive ways, too.  Too bad that it only had a very short time to broadcast of our recordings!  I talk about food only and nothing about fashion at all.  It was definitely a great experience for me, though.  Thank you for the opportunity, NBC!

やりました。全米放送のNBC Today Showにとうとう出ちゃいました。やった!え?なんだって?3秒ぐらい!笑。さて こちらのリンクに ほんのチラッと出ています。 お見逃しなく。

乳 がんを体験する患者と、その周囲のサポートをしてくれる人たちに 私にはメッセージがある。癌の治療中 四六時中ずっと暗く引きこもって、嘆き悲しんでいるだけになってほしくないと。私にとって 癌は大きな脅威の存在であることに違いないし、できることなら、長期戦となる癌治療もやりたくない。でも、先に 進むには、どうしても避けられなくなってしまった。だから、どうせ避けられずに通らなければいけないなら、ずっと引きこもって嘆き悲しみがちなところに、 ファッションの力を借りれば、時に気分アップが出来るのだと。患者自身が気分アップしている間、周囲でサポートしてくれている人たちも、きっとポジティブ にアプローチしやすいと思う。乳がん患者である瞬間を一瞬忘れられる時があるのは良いと思う。テレビの放映時間がこのトピックで6分無かった中 に、ナビゲーターの二人と専門家と、5人の患者が話しているんだから 私の時間が短いのは仕方が無い!ご飯の話をして、ファッションの話は一切無く。でも 良い経験になったことには違いない!この機会をありがとう!
