SHARE program 乳癌卵巣がん患者さん向けの冊子

(In Japanese at the end.  日本語は英語の後にあります。) I am on the face of the SHARE ovarian and breast cancer support group's brochure for Winter (January - April program). I did not know how much it helped me to be able to talk to people who had been through breast cancer before me. I hope you will find a comfortable group to talk to. It is such a big relief to know that when I say a couple of words, there are people say "I know what you mean. YES, I have been there."

Cancer, Hats, and "To Live" 癌と帽子と「生きる」

I am really excited that my hats are on a musical stage, "Ikiru" in Tokyo, Japan since October 8, 2018, until October 28.  This made-in-Japan musical is called "To Live," (or "Ikiru," in Japanese) and it is based on the Akira Kurosawa's same title movie from 1952.  It really means a lot to me to be a part of that movie story.
