People with cancer experience different types of pain, from the disease, or from the treatments. This pain is physical as well as emotional, as the patients encounter distress and worry. While in the Western world it is common for the patients to communicate their suffering, in Japan it’s not the norm to talk about experiencing pain. Patients suffer in silence, as they’re afraid to tell their doctors, thinking there’s something wrong with them and their cancer treatments will be terminated. They also want to avoid upsetting their family, and feel like they need to “look strong” and not complain too much.
Create an inspirational story that will convince cancer patients to voice out their pain to their doctors and loved ones, so that they can get better treatment and be released of their symptoms
