On 11 March 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami caused unprecedented devastation in Japan. Over 20,000 people lost their lives or went missing and more than 100,000 people had to evacuate their homes. Many victims are patients with chronic diseases, including cancer, who face interrupted or discontinued therapy.
