Because of his malignant tumour that was diagnosed all of sudden, Minho was unconscious for 20days
At first, it was thought that it was pneumonia. However, the symptoms did not get improved after several treatments. Minho then went to a big hospital and after examination, he was diagnosed with a malignant lymphoma. He went through chemotherapy for two months. His family hoped that he would get well and that the tumour would go away, however, the tumour spread to the brain and Minho became unconscious. While he could not recover from unconsciousness, even the doctor asked Minho’s family to get their heart ready.
*Malignant lymphoma: a cancer that starts anywhere in the body’s lymphatic system
Minho’s parents did not lose their hope and kept praying. Like a miracle, Minho regained consciousness. However, despite this positive sign, the situation worsened: after a transplant operation, Minho had apnoea symptoms that made him to stay at the intensive care unit for three weeks. As of today, Minho is continuing his fight against the diseases.

If I have one free day, I want to play football.
Since he was 6 years-old and until he got sick, Minho joined a football club and went around the football field as a mid-fielder. Whenever he talks about football he cannot help but smiling.
Minho feels good when he sees someone who is good at football, and that is how he endured his hard times fighting the disease watching his favourite footballers: Christiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Son Heung-min.
Before he got his disease, Minho used to spend time with his dad playing football. The longer he stays at the hospital, the more he misses football. When he was asked what he wants to do if he could get one free day, he answered without hesitation that he would be playing football as much as he could. The days that he cannot play football make him down as hard as the struggling against a disease.
