Dag. I had no idea Yuma Asami had ovarian cancer. The popular Japanese pornstar with the tig ol bitties just put out an autobiography, Restart: Believe in Yourself, talking about how she got into the industry and her fight against cancer.

In January of last year, Asami (26 at the time) suffered from stomach problems, which shortly revealed she had ovarian cancer. She went through surgery, removing her uterus and ovaries, and another six treatments to deal with the cancer. She’s recovered and is working as a gravure idol (no intercourse) since last fall.

I wonder if there will be an English translation version because I want to experience heartbreaking inspirational boners too. Cop it on Amazon Japan.
