Shingo Arasaki on way to the U.S.

Date Posted: 2001-07-07

Shingo Arasaki, a 19-year old graduate of Tomigusuku High School suffers from a heart muscle disease. His condition has improved slightly after he had an assisting artificial heart implanted at the National Cardiovascular Center in Osaka. Despite the operation, his disease has no other real cure but a heart transplant.

However changes having a new heart transplanted in Japan are practically inexistent. He was recently officially accepted by a hospital at UCLA where he is waiting for a suitable donor after leaving for US on July 11. In order to raise funds for the operation, which will cost around 120 million, including hospital, travel and other expenses, a charity group for saving Shingo Arasaki was formed last August. The group is a bit shy from halfway from its goal and needs to collect 68 million more. In order to help, a charity concert will be held August 5 at Naha Civic Hall. The group also has a Japanese language web page at Shingo.

For more information, call or fax to Group for Saving Shingo Aragaki at 833-4593. Address: 106 Miharashi Mansion, 2-19-8 Sobe, Naha City
