Learning Ukulele Has Helped My Memory

By Lori Nakamura
Aiea, Hawaii

I was 39 years old when I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. I went through 5 cycles of chemo, and still today endure the lingering effects of chemo brain.

Fortunately, I have a friend who told me about the Hands On Healing program. She explained that Roy Sakuma Ukulele Studios offers free lessons to cancer survivors. Adding to the joy of learning to play the ukulele, my two daughters were able to sign up for lessons as well. Next month makes two years since we've taken up ukulele, and it will be 5 years since my surgery and treatments.
