She was sick from 2009 till now? Or what?

Everybody should stop being selfish by asking her to finish NANA. I really adored NANA too, but what most important is her health. So people should be more considerate and think about her feelings. She is the one that hurts the most, do you really think that she doesn't want to finish NANA? If you can't be patient then imagine how Yazawa would finish the series. In the mean time, Yazawa get better.

Love the maturity and realistic depiction of romance relationships in both Nana and Paradise Kiss.
They're among my favorite romance stories in anime/manga. I hope Nana will eventually be finished.
