Welcome to our homepage!

This homepage is a translation of the homepage of the American sibling support project by the Japanese "sibling support society", and with the permission of the first director of the project, Donald Meyer, the site of the initial sibling support society. It was deployed in. After that, in May 2020, we transferred from the Sibling Support Association to the Sibling Support Association.

It is from the hospital / medical center era.
