Day20: Teaching Tuesday

I gave a midterm to my Tuesday class today.  One student stayed after the class to talk to me.  She disclosed to me that she had gone through chemo treatments for two years when she was younger.  She shared me some of activities or things that she tried.  One thing was clear to me that I should be open to anything to try.  I am thankful that she shared her experience with me.  I am not the only one.  She is brave, thoughtful and bright lady now.  Thank you.

Day15: Chelsea

While I can move around in this precious short time in-between chemo therapies, I wanted to visit Chelsea area in NYC.  There was my favorite tea store and having variety in teas might help me drinking more liquid after each chemo sessions.  (Unfortunately, the store was not there any more.)  I also wanted to give some tour to my parents from Japan who are helping us out during my treatments.  Under our circumstances, they tend to stay home and I wanted to share what I find great about the city to them.  We did not have the whole day to be there, but there was full of interesting things to see, High Line walk path and Chelsea Market.  It is a nice opportunity to dress nice and feel good.

Day 16: Visiting a Support Group -SHARE

My first time, I visited a breast and ovarian cancer support group.  The organization, SHARE, is a New York City based breast and ovarian cancer support group, but open to nationwide.    It offers hotline help, educational programs and topic based support group meetings. The picture is with Aiko, who runs the Japanese SHARE organization.  (日本語は 英語の後に記述。)   (click for the link) TOLL FREE HELPLINE 844-ASK-SHARE Breast, Ovarian, Latina, Caregiver
