I'm starting to post some of the blog in English since I thought I could help in some way for English speaking foreigners who is planning to get breast cancer treatment in Japan.
One day, I saw a foreign girl who was waiting at the hospital to get her chemo. I had seen her several times, but never talked to her. But imagining how scary I would feel if I had a cancer in a foreign country, I couldn't help talking to her.
She seemed so happy being able to speak in English about the cancer, and she even gave me some tips on how I could survive from the side effects from the chemo.
Ever since then, I started thinking.
Are there any way that I can support non Japanese people who is planning to get breast cancer treatment in Japan from a patinet perspective?
As I am Japanese, the insurance process is probably different, so I will not be able to help with that part, but the treatment process should not differ so much even though there are several types of breast cancers.
If you have questions about breast cancer treatments in Japan, I will be happy to try my best to answer them. Please do not hesitate to ask. It will be great if this blog can be help to others.
Please leave comments, if you like. I can keep them private if you request.
Since I know you will want to know, I will start posting what has happned so far from the next post, although I probably will keep on posting in Japanese as well.
The posting of the blog in English may be very slow, but I will try my best to keep it up to dated.
