After working for Tokyo Disney Resort for approximately 20 years, I established a non-profit organization supporting Japanese children with critical illness andtheir family. Based on this background, I would like to give a talk focusing on mothers who have children with such diseases. In Disney Resort, visitors are welcomed by “Hello!”, and sent off by “See you again!”. The Disney facility is fully cleaned by the staff. Therefore, the visitors don’t throw away the trash and put it in the trash bin. That’s “a matter of course”. These things are, however, something we were taught by our mothers, and it is a starting point of the society. I have met as many as 240 families, and had conversations with the mothers. The messages of “living the current life” I saw from the conversations are all with full of love and depth.
