well she is being private with it, as it should be.
According to the Animage interview (was it Animage?) in 2008, on why the SEED movie was indefinitely postponed, Morosawa mentioned she was ill, but she didn't mention if it was cancer.

I'm not sure if Fukuda was done anything notable after SEED Destiny, but I'll guess that he's prolly being fed up with the Sunrise execs.

I can picture the relationship between Fukuda and the Sunrise suits:

Gundam SEED (30 minute toy commercials with recurring characters):

Sunrise: "It's been a while, Gundam is getting old, and my old fanbase isn't giving me as much revenue anymore. I want something that appeases both the old fans and the horde of fanbois"
Tomino: "It'll take a genius for that..."
Iida: "I don't think I want to milk this any further, 08th MS Team is as good as I can do for Gundam. My ideas are spent, I'm off to make Hellsing now, should relax my brain cells a bit."
Sunrise: "I KNOW! FUKUDA!"
Tomino: "The maker of Gear Fighter Dendoh? I don't think he works for the oldschool fans, Dendoh is taking old super robot concepts with new graphics, but I'm not sure you can apply that to Gunda-"
Sunrise: "CAN YOU STOP BITCHING FOR ONCE TOMINO? I'M TRYING TO MAKE MORE MONEY OFF GUNDAM HERE!"
Tomino: "Fine, but let me tell you this: Anime like Astro Boy, MAzinger Z, Space Battleship Yamato, Mobile Suit Gundam and the like are milestones that come once in decades, you can milk money out of them, but you won't revolutionize anything anymore. Gundam has finished long ago. You should give it some dignified rest"
Sunrise: "NO! I WANT MORE GUNDAM! FUKUDA!"
Fukuda: "A new gundam? Okay, I'll make something original and-"
Sunrise: "NO! I want to appease the oldschool fans, repeat the plot of MSG"
Fukuda: "What? But thats kinda..."
Sunrise: "You are to show the world that Gundam is both oldschool and hip and fresh AT THE SAME TIME!"
Fukuda: "Gundam is something timeless, there's no need for-
Sunrise: "HIP AND FRESH, AND I'M GIVING YOU HISASHI HIRAI!"
Hirai: "BISHIES! BISHIES! BISHIES!"
Fukuda: "What is this? You're drawing the same face over and over again just with different hair, I could graft Lacus' face onto Athrun, change the eye color and nobody would notice."
Hirai: "BISHIES!!!"
Fukuda: "Isn't this guy a character from s-cry-ed? Are you even trying?"
Hirai: "BISHIES! BOOBS!"
Fukuda: "Wow, he knows another word aside of "bishies", thats... *ugh* okay I'll try to make this..."
Sunrise: "WE MUST SELL TOYS TOO! MAKE ALL GUNDAMS STRIKE POSES FOR 2 WHOLE SECONDS PRIOR TO SHOOTING!"
Fukuda: "But isn't it supposed to be more fast paced in battles? Can't I have Itano? I mean look at the Funnels in CCA"
Sunrise: "NO! I WANT RAINBOW LASER BEAMS! I WANT POSING GIANT MECHA! I WANT KIDS TO BUY THE TOYS!"
Fukuda: "Fine! Jeeze! I have a feeling this isn't going to make me very popular with the old fanbase..."

Gundam SEED Destiny (Nigga Kira stole my bike spotlight)

Sunrise: "WE'RE NOT GETTING MUCH ANY OF THE OLD FANBASE BACK!"
Fukuda: "Hello? I make super robot anime, my character designer can only draw one face. FOR BOTH GENDERS."
Sunrise: "You have to make it darker and edgier! Make Shinn kill Kira!"
Fukuda: "Hey, thats kinda good, Shinn will be genuinely hated, it'll stir up emotions!"

*later*

Sunrise: "FUKUDA! GET KIRA BACK!"
Fukuda: "Why?"
Sunrise: "WE UPSET HIS FANGIRLZ!"
Fukuda: "Yes, because we killed him? It was sad and a big event? That was the point of this plot? Tomino would have left him dead."
Sunrise: "REVIVE HIM! AND MWU! MAKE KIRA MAIN CHARACTER! ALSO, MORE BEAMSPAM!"
Fukuda: "At the expense of Shinn? We're killing and reviving characters based on popularity now? But okay, I get paid plenty for this so whatever... sorry Tomino."
