Oggi il Presidente di Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, ha scritto una lettera indirizzata a tutti per condividere la sue condizioni di salute, che ricordiamo, lo avevano costretto ad assentarsi all’E3.
Thank you very much for your continued extraordinary support of us. I am Satoru Iwata, President of the company.
Today, there is one thing that I would like to share with you.
Recently, as the result of one of my routine physical examinations, an issue was detected. Following a more detailed examination, a growth was found in my bile duct.
In general, it is said that a bile duct growth can be difficult-to-treat, partly because of the difficulty of detecting it early. In my case, luckily, it was detected very early and I had no symptoms.
I was counseled that removal at an early stage would be the desirable medical option. Therefore I had surgery last week, and I came through it well, as predicted.
I have already resumed my business by email and by other means, but it is anticipated that a little more time is needed for me to return to my regular work schedule.
As a result, I have no choice but to miss the company’s very important activity, the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, to be held this month. As the president of the company, I regret that I cannot attend the meeting. However, I understand that I have to prioritize my medical treatment and to recover as soon as possible so that I will again be able to do my best to help the company to grow. I hope that you understand.
Per chi non mastica particolarmente l’inglese a Iwata è stato diagnosticato un tumore alle vie biliari, che, come dice lui stesso, “è difficile da curare, per via della difficoltà nel diagnosticarlo in breve tempo. Nel mio caso è stato diagnosticato in breve tempo e non ho accusato sintomi.”
Tutta la redazione di Another Castle augura una prontissima, anzi diretta, guarigione al Presidente Iwata.
