Girl with cancer goes to healing hot spring

20090407p2a00m0na002000p_size68-year old Nanako Murakami has brain cancer. 99% of her bone marrow is cancerous, and she has neuroblastoma even after a stem cell transplant. So her 48-year old mother decided to do for her what many older patients do to heal—she took her to a Fukushima spa called Yawaragi no Yu that has natural radioactive hot rocks that supposedly cure the deadly disease. Apparently, she’s the youngest visitor there ever–other kids are usually denied entry because of the risk of side effects.

I hope this works for Nanako-chan.
