Living with Cancer (a bilingual panel discussion event)

MSC held its final event for the 2016 calendar year on the topic of “Living with Cancer.” The event had two parts: (1) four 20-minute presentations by panelists about their personal experience dealing with cancer; (2) small group discussions led by the panelists during which audience members could ask questions.

Panelists included: a person who contracted thyroid cancer a year ago that spread to his vocal cords and who now uses an electric device to speak; a person who recently underwent a double masectomy and her spouse; and finally a person whose sister succumbed to cancer after a battle for several years.

Approximately 40 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetimes.

MSC今年最後のイベントは、『癌と共に生きる』と題して、パネルディスカッションを開催致します。最初の20分間はパネリストの方々に自ら経験した癌の話をして頂きます。その後はパネリストごとグループに分かれ、直接参加者が質問できる二部構成になっています。

一年前に声帯まで広がった甲状腺がんを患い、現在は電子補声器を使用している方、最近癌の手術を受けた方、癌で姉(妹)を亡くされた方がパネリストとして参加します。

約40パーセントの男女が一生のうちに癌と診断されると言われています。MSCのイベント『癌と共に生きる』では癌を経験した方々から直接話を聞くことで、癌について学べる機会を提供いたします。参加をご希望の方はこちらまでご連絡ください。
