Despite her efforts, Chiyo could do nothing to help Kankuro. She believes that only Tsunade can neutralize Sasori’s poison. Soon after, Team 7 and Temari arrive at the Hidden Sand and learn about Kankuro’s condition. Temari goes to see him, and Sakura, Tsunade’s student, offers to heal him. She removes the poison from Kankuro’s body and asks Chiyo to help find the ingredients for the antidote. At this time, Tsunade is concerned that Team 7 will encounter great difficulty in rescuing Gaara and so sends reinforcements in the form of Team Gaia.
