This letter was written by Ryan Tenmetsu to Ryuta Shigamatsu on December 4, 2006, saying that Ryuta had been diagnosed with cancer and cannot attend school until the cancerous cells are removed.


Hi Mr. Ryuta Shigematsu,

We have gotten reports from the Minecraftia Health Network saying that a cancerous tumor was found in your bile duct. This battle against cancer will affect your mental and physical health, as well as your intelligence and emotional habits. The symptoms of this disease are life-threatening and you will have to take some medications to stop this from getting worse. The side effects of any chemotherapy drugs you may be receiving may also affect your physical appearance. Doctors have also discussed surgery to remove the tumor if it gets worse. You will not be able to attend classes until the cancerous tumor is removed or settles down. Any homework you miss will also be mailed to you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you battle this horrible disease. Thanks for your time at Minecraftia High School, and we hope your battle becomes swift and successful!

Yours sincerely,

Ryan Tenmetsu
