キャッツ洋子 乳がん ようこ シンポジウム タモキシフェン ファッション

This past Saturday, April 23, 2017, I was one of three guest speakers at a breast cancer awareness conference held by a non-profit organization, Young Japanese Breast Cancer Network, at a residence of Japanese ambassador in New York.   Two other speakers were breast surgeons from New York and Japan, both Japanese, and I was a survivor speaker.  My title of the presentation was “my breast cancer treatments story: fashion helped me in my healing process.” My story + turban wrapping demonstration in 15 minutes.

キャッツ洋子 こむら返り 足がつる 脚 タモキシフェン 帽子

I have been on Tamoxifen medication for breast cancer, since November 2014, that is for 2 years and 2 months.  I am supposed to take this for at least 5 years and possibly 10 years.  I had been suffering from severe leg cramps, but having magnesium supplements gave me peaceful sleep!!!  If you suffer from cramps like me, try magnesium supplement!!!!! (Ask your doctor, if you can take it.)

抗がん剤 乳がん キャッツ洋子 爪 髪の毛

After 1 year and 9 months from my last breast cancer chemotherapy treatments (ended in November 2014), I finally feel that my nails gained again the strength I used to had.  Up to this summer, my nails had been chipping, cracking, and coming into multiple separated layers all the time.  I could not grow them at all.  But now I can!
