13 Comments

Yuriko Inose, the wife of Tokyo Gov Naoki Inose, died Sunday of a brain tumor. She was 65.

She was diagnosed with the tumor in May and had been hospitalised since then, TV Asahi quoted a Tokyo metropolitan government spokesperson as saying.

Prior to her illness, Mrs Inose had been actively involved in Tokyo's bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics. "Thanks to my wife, I was able to carry on this campaign. I want to continue putting my heart into this campaign in her memory," Gov Inose said in a statement to media on Monday.

My god, she didn't have much time at all did she. 3 months diagnosis to death... How terrible for her and her family.

It is very sad. I have a close friend fighting the same disease. She was having head aches during several weeks and doctors turned her back home with a few aspirins and rest. Then the diagnosis was confirmed with an MRI scan.

It is very sad. I have a close friend fighting the same disease. She was having head aches during several weeks and doctors turned her back home with a few aspirins and rest. But when she started to have blurred vision then found in an online symptom checker called ESAGIL (http://esagil.org) that a Brain Tumor was among the possibilities. Then the diagnosis was confirmed with an MRI scan.

My 86 year old grandmother was just diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor as well. Very, very sad. Doctors give her about 3 months.
