Ryuichi Sakamoto - throat cancer

Postby Blemished on Fri Jul 11, 2014 1:13 pm

Very sad news via David's facebook page that Ryuichi Sakamoto has been diagnosed with throat cancer. I really hope it's been caught early and wish him well for his treatment. Ryuichi's letter is posted on his site - link below.

Survival rates are actually pretty good for this cancer.

About 10 years ago Ryuichi regularly made blog posts on his site covering pretty much every aspect of his life, and he's one of those people that looks after himself, with regular medical check-ups and health screenings and so on. As long as he hasn't changed these habits he's probably caught it early, and he's no doubt getting the best advice possible. I'm optimistic that he'll pull through. Not sure if it's the same form of cancer or not but look at Nile Rodgers - hale and hearty and touring extensively following successful treatment.

I imagine his prognosis is quite good, but I am happy to see that he is taking the time he needs to focus on his health.
