Acute lymphatic leukemia news caster Otsuka may die in 5 years for 70%, Fukushima Diary, Nov. 22, 2011:
Mr. Otsuka Norikazu [...] has been “supporting north Japan by eating their food”. [...]
He declared that he will be back on TV by next March or April, but he has his neck connected to the tube, and they are injecting anticancer drug.
Now he is 63 years old. Statistically, even though he goes though the hard time to fight against cancer, the chance of surviving is 30~40% in 5 years.
All we could do is to wish him the best luck.
