Please help us raise money to pay for my wife Kaori’s cancer treatment. This is her experience in her words:

When I first noticed the lump last year, I guess you could say I was in denial. I didn't think I needed, or even deserved, any treatment or attention. Then my dad died suddenly on January 7th. He was my only family. That made me realize that I needed to take care of my health for my children's sake.  Without telling my children I made a doctor's appointment and had an exam. When I got the diagnosis of stage three breast cancer I felt scared and alone. I didn't want to tell my children because I didn't want them to worry. When I told Kevin, he said "Don't worry, lets get through this together." I got laid off from a company I had worked at for 10 years in 2017, so I also told him I worried about how expensive the cancer treatment would be. He said not to worry about that either, he can handle it himself. He told me about go fund me and I thought no one would donate. After just a few days and many doantions I realized  I was wrong and I wasn't alone.

I had my second chemo therapy last week. I was fine that day but from the next day until yesterday I've been feeling bad all day. The medecine they gave me didn't work even though the last time DID work. Every time I was feeling negative or thinking maybe I should quit, I remembered everyone who donated and supported me and I felt I have to be better so I can give back to all of you. All of the support from everyone gave me strenght and keeps me going. Thank you all so much.

I got a wig the other day!
First time I went to check wigs, they were so expensive so I thought maybe I shouldn't get one.
Then I talked to Kevin about that. He said to think about how much I spend on getting hair cuts and coloring. Since I don't need them for a long time, maybe it's not so expensive. So I decided to buy a wig. Also tomorrow is my son's guraduation celemony so If I show up bald, he wouldn't like that.

I had my first chemotherapy on Monday. I was so scared and I hate needles. That day it wasn’t so bad, but day by day I felt worse. I couldn't eat but I knew I should.

Finally I couldn't take it so I went to the hospital. The doctor gave me medicine that helps my stomach so I could eat. I didn't realize eating was so important until I wasn’t able to do it.

Thank you so much for your donations! I think we can now cover 6 months of chemotherapy. I’m feeling very relieved and hopeful.
