The Hospital Home: Fighting Cancer With Family “おうち”診療所～がんと闘う子どもたちの願い～ 2015
Current Affairs Emotional Family
One doctor’s challenge may change the world. “Children can grow up with a smile despite having cancer.” This concept gave birth to the child chemo clinic , Ouchi Clinic , the nation’s first pediatric cancer treatment facility, in Kobe. The Ouchi Clinic (Ouchi meaning home in Japanese) was launched by Dr. Juhan Kusunoki. With 19 rooms complete with kitchen and bathroom facilities, it can accommodate children and their families, allowing them to spend time with each other. This documentary follows the challenges faced at the Ouchi Clinic through the case of Madoka, a girl who managed to make a dramatic recovery and was able to attend her school’s graduation ceremony.
