Living with Cancer (a bilingual panel discussion event)

November 19, 2016 Saturday, 13:30-16:00 (doors open at 1:00; free entrance for all)

Sapporo International Communication Plaza MN Building 3F, Kita 1 Nishi 3, Chuo-ku,

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.

Somatic Yoga ソマティックヨガ実践講座

leave a comment »

September 24, 2016 Saturday, 13:30-16:00

Hokudai Clark Center, 3F

Masako Hirasawa, PhD.,  a certified Hanna Somatic Educator, who has been teaching Somatic Exercises at Non-profit Organizations since 2008, conducted a well received workshop. Her bilingual presentation included a PowerPoint slide show explanation of the physiology followed by audience members actually learning to do the gentle somatic exercises. These require one to contract and relax various muscles that are chronically tight, perhaps as a result of unconscious tension (caused by post-injury trauma or stress), while focusing the mind on internal changes.

HMSC meeting 1 Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia アルツハイマーと認知症

leave a comment »

“Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia”Dr. Hitoshi Sohma, Professor and Director(Sapporo Medical Univ. Center for Medical Educ.)

English with Japanese Summary Explanation、Sapporo Medical University (S1W17) East Bldg. 1F, Entrance is free for everyone.

5月28日(土) 13:30-16:30 (途中休憩、茶菓あり)

演題: 認知症,特にアルツハイマー病を学びませんか

演者:相馬 仁(札幌医科大学,医療人育成センター)



Dr. Sohma began the presentation by sharing an edited version of a speech delivered by Dr. Gary Small which is accessible on YouTube.  I recommend that you watch the full version of his speech because you can select the “Close Captioned” option and read the English for those who might feel the spoken English is too fast.  However, do keep in mind that the captions are not perfect as they are machine generated.  In his talk, Dr. Sohma basically shared abut half of this speech at the meeting.  There is a PowerPoint file which corresponds to the slides that Dr. Sohma chose from the video clip by Dr. Small.  These were prepared bilingually to help the Japanese audience to be able to follow the rapid spoken English.

Dr. Small’s speech can be viewed by clicking on the link below.  You can expand it to full screen view. ~ Please go to HMSC website ( for presentation.

I’m sorry for not being able to write in this page for a long time. As a Secretary General of Go!Fly!!Wheelchairs I have been occupied with lots of work.
Neighbors made a new leaflet and the group of senior citizens from different cultures that named MSC (Multinational Senior Community) is very active. We also support people in the Philippines as well.
