Strong mother. 

I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

Mao Kobayashi: Japanese cancer blogger dies at 34 – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-40378443

I’m not sure if she’s famous in your country. She was a newsreader, a mother of a 4 year old son and a 5 year old daughter and a wife of a kabuki actor. She was a beautiful,  strong, wise woman.  Today I looked at my son and held him tight. I can’t stop crying,  thinking about her. It’s hard for her leave her little kids for sure. Daily life is busy and we are prone to take it for granted that things keep happening everyday to us. I heard her family did everything they could do even though the situation was touch and go. That is the way it should always be. It’s rare in Japan for people dignosed with a serious health issue to openly talk about the condition. She started blogging and told us everything. I believe that  many people are motivated to become stronger thanks to her. 

My Mother passed away when I was 27. Losing your mother is very hard no matter how old you are. Her kids and her husband are going to have a difficult time without her. I want to send condolences  to the famil. And Mao-San-rest in peace.
