Masako & Mark here.  Welcome you to our CaringBridge site.  It helps us keep family, friends, and colleagues informed about our 2017 Medical Marathon. We appreciate your cheerleading, prayers, financial support & overall encouragement  !     October 2016,  Masako was diagnosed with a stage 3 rectal tumor.  It has not spread.  The University of California, San Francisco Medical Center (UCSF) is our medical home base  This type of cancer is both treatable and curable.   However  it required chemo therapy, then radiation, which are both COMPLETE !  Ultimately surgery was done to remove “YASTUMON” (the tumor).    We have restructured our daily life to match Masako's medical schedule, with great success.  We are living each day to the fullest as Masako gets stronger.  Phase 3, surgery on Sept 12th by Dr. Mika Varma, will complete the treatment, with full recovery expected in 2017. By God's Grace Go We.   Thank you so much for all of your support in many ways !  M & M

2016年10月、雅子はステージ3の直腸癌の診断を受けました。他への転移はないです。全ての治療はカリフォルニア大学サンフランシスコメディカルセンターにて行われます   このタイプの癌は治療、完治可能であるとの事。ですが、抗がん剤治療、放射線治療が必要で、そのどちらも終わりました!最終的にヤツモン(腫瘍)は摘出されました。私達は雅子の治療スケジュールに合わせ、日々の生活を組み立て直し、上手くできています。雅子の体力を強くしながら、満ちた日々の生活を過ごしています。第3段階、9月12日の手術、2017年中に全治を期待して、治療は終了します。神様の恵みによって頑張るぞ。皆さんの色々な方法での応援に本当に感謝しています!
