I wish her all the best and hope that she gets better soon! It would be a shame for the Japanese music industry to lose such a beautiful and talented singer...

FUCK. Why does cancer have to ruin everything in life. She's one of my favourite Japanese artists :'(. Hope she manages to fight it as well as she can.

Cancer sucks especially throat and thyroid cancer which could harm her voice. Hopefully she'll beat it.
