"Anti-cancer drugs were injected from the thigh, except for a bit of heat, I felt nothing else. After the treatment, I felt a little nausea and there was no other side effects, but my chest was not so suppressing any more, I feel a lot easier."

When he went out for sightseeing, no one ever discovered that he was a cancer patient, who just fought against Hodgkin lymphoma.
