I first got to know him when I was flying back to Sydney after my holiday in Korea, when I discovered his autobiography 'The miracle is in you'. It was a fascinating read which I finished at one sitting, but the book is unfortunately in Korean.. He has turned his disability into an advantage, as patients with spinal cord injuries tend to trust him more since he has gone through the pain and grief himself. His story inspired me, and I thought I should share it with the med students here.
