Cancer/Bad Occurrences and the Japanese

Hello!

I have cancer in my spine and CP (cerebral palsy) and I heard that the Japanese blame the person or family if something bad has happened to an individual.

Comments? Can someone help me?

I think that's kind of an old way of thinking and most people don't feel that way now.

In my host family, one of the cousins has Down's Syndrome and when the 90sometiing year old grandma said that there was no way she could have gotten it from her side of the family or something like that the cousin's family and a bunch of relatives refused to have anything to do with the grandma anymore. I think if it's a health thing they don't mistreat the family or anything like that.
