トロント新移住者協会より

     “佐々木ファンド義援金活動へのご協力に感謝いたします”

難病と闘う佐々木祐太さんを励まし力づける支援募金活動をトロント新移住者協会が立ち上げたのは昨年11月のことでした。以来3ヶ月、その呼びかけに呼応してトロント市は言うに及ばずカナダ各地の日系人を中心とした皆様方の間に大きな善意の輪が広がりました。寄せられましたご厚意の寄金は熱いメッセージとなって日本の佐々木さん親子に届けられます。
手術後の祐太さんの経過につきましては、すでに集中治療室や一般病棟での術後の医療処置を終えて、現在は自宅をベースにしたリハビリ療法に移行いたしております。左右の全聴力を失うと同時に脳神経の損傷による歩行困難など、基本的な日常生活の維持を妨げる障害に立ち向かわなければならない親子の前途は険しいものがありますが、祐太さんは歩行訓練のほか読唇術や手話にも熱心に取り組み障害の克服に向けて力強く歩み始めております。
JETプログラムによる宮崎県庁国際課での勤務時代に発症して以来、すでに10年近い闘病の歳月を耐え抜いた若者の勇気と強靭な精神力を思い、私どもは及ばずながら側面援助を続けたいものと思っております。
義援金活動につきましては本年1月末をもちまして一応のピリオドを打たせていただきますが、今後とも皆様方の温かい励ましのお声をご本人たちに送り続けたいと思っております。これまでの心のこもったご支援に対しここに深く感謝の意を表する次第です。

Heartfelt THANK YOU for Your Contribution to the Sasaki Fund!

In November 2010, Toronto NJCA launched a fundraising project to support and encourage Yuuta Sasaki, a young man who has been fighting against a serious and difficult illness. During the ensuing three months, responses from Japanese Canadians and others have been phenomenal. The circle of goodwill grew beyond Toronto to become Canada-wide. Your generous donations which carry your passionate message of encouragement will be presented to the Sasaki family.
After the operation and subsequent in-hospital treatments, Yuuta is now in a home-based rehabilitation program. Complete hearing loss and continuing difficulties in walking/balancing which are side effects of compromised cranial nerves pose difficulties in daily activities not only for Yuuta but also for his caring mother, making the road to recovery long and challenging. However, Yuuta is moving on to overcome these disabilities. In addition to walking exercises, he is determined to learn lip reading and sign language.
It has been almost 10 years since Yuuta’s symptoms surfaced while working at the International Section of the Miyazaki Prefectural Government under the JET Program. During this long and hard fight against his illness, he has exhibited strength and courage. We are inspired by his efforts. We would like to continue whatever we can to extend assistance to the Sasaki Family.
Though this fund raising project will be officially closed at the end of January 2011, our thoughts will continue to be with them. Your kind words of encouragement and support will be conveyed. We thank you very much for your most thoughtful and generous support for the Sasaki Family.
