Mrs. Nozawa's Recovery

Mrs. Maturot Nozawa was recently diagnosed with early stage breast cancer in both of her breasts. She is scheduled to have two lumpectomy surgeries on both breasts on Thursday, November16, next month. She and her family are in dire need of support. Luckily, their medical insurance is covering most of the costs of her surgery, as well as her radiation therapy, but she will inevitably be out of work for the following weeks to months after the surgery.  She is concerned that the breast surgery will force her to a break longer than what is usually expected because her body and immune system are not so strong.  

During the time that Mrs. Nozawa is out of work, she, her husband, Yoshihisa, and their two daughters, Sonomi and Mimi need all the physical, emotional, and financial support that they can receive during this difficult time. We are asking the community and friends of the Nozawa's to offer a helping hand through any amount of donation.  All support would be incredibly appreciated by her family, and the donations made during this time will make this situation for their family all the less stressful and more smooth. Please offer prayers that the surgery on the 16th of next month will go safely and well.
