Speaking to a local reporter, Kang said:

When our baby was born the doctors said life expectancy would be just a few days, maybe a month. Well, twenty months on we’re still hoping that some treatment can be found. That’s why I am speaking out that maybe someone will notice it who can recommend a specialist paediatrician.”
