Sunmin’s need for life-saving surgery


For days Sunmin dealt with a progressively painful stomach ache until she couldn’t take the pain any longer. After going to her pediatrician she found that her appendix burst, and she needed emergency appendectomy surgery. Not realizing how critical a ruptured appendix was, but not wanting to wait, the family turned to Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, where Sunmin received the humanistic emergency care that saved her life and put her family’s fears at ease. Learn more about Sunmin’s journey back to health and her study of Kumdo–a Korean martial art to which she is proudly a second-degree black belt.
