start a Support Campaign
Please collaborate on the campaign
to support Lee’s Cancer Treatment.
Rhizome Lee(Ryuji Oka), a 71 years
old Japanese Butoh dancer, founder of Subbody Butoh Method, who has dedicated
his life to research on the chaotic resonance patterns of Life through art, in
order to free and connect Life beyond boundaries. Many souls and shadows all
over the world healed and benefited from his research.
In May, he was diagnosed with stage3
(pT3N1b ) colonic cancer.
Thanks to the warm support from old
friends and students he was able to have urgent surgery on the 25th of May in
Max hospital Chandigarh, India.
Exploratory laprotomy + Enmass sigmoid
colectomy + Jejunal loop excision + Right inguinal hernioplasty +
But as the cancer report shows
cancer has spread to blood and lymph, so even after surgery he needs to go
Just like most freelance artists, he
doesn't have any savings. Neither government medical support, as he moved to
India from Japan to establish the Subbody Butoh institute 20 years ago. The
state where he lives has very limited medical support for cancer treatment,
under COIVD19 world condition, all travel cost is much more expensive and plus
his body condition(Surgery wound has about 60cm long, the organs that were cut
off has about two feet big), for a while he won’t be able to make any incomes
to continue his treatment and living.
Lee never yielded even once to pain
or fear of death, his heart full of gratitude. After 8 hours of surgery, in ICU
the first word he said was “Thank you”. Once he is able to move, the first
thing he did was to write down his new book about Life Resonance Philosophy!
Even if he couldn't write down a proper word yet, he said this is the only way
he can give back to the world, for all the support and warmth. The most
important thing keeping him alive is to give back in return.
Small drops of water make the ocean,
any amount of support, big or small, they all transform to the wind that brings
the heart to heaven.
Thanks for all!
