"I recommend Being Mortal- Medicine and What Matters in the End by Atul Gawande. We are all mortal. There is no exception for this natural phenomenon. As I turned fifty, now I continue to think about aging and the end of life. The author, Atul Gawande, shows us what we face when we are caught in terminal illness through his patient’s (including his father) stories. Gawande encourages us to contemplate how to “be well” all the way to the END OF LIFE. We will have hope if we are able to manage our last days with autonomy."    


About Chiyo Umeuchi

She has been part of our accounting team since 2008. She loves growing vegetable, running trails, painting, and of course, reading.

She longs for “晴耕雨読”-(Seikou Udoku: working in the field on fine days, reading books on rainy days) as an ideal lifestyle. Does it sound too quiet? No problem, her cat always interrupts her.
