Saint Francis Memorial Hospital

  • Saint Francis Memorial Hospital 900 Hyde Street San Francisco, CA, 94109 United States (map)

On November 8th 2016, Kim will return to the hospital where she was treated for her life-threatening leg injury.

Diagnosed with Acute Compartment Syndrome after a freak fall in 2007 on her way to work, Kim was a mere 30 minutes from the amputation of her right leg from the knee down. Given a 1% chance of walking unassisted again, Kim not only learned to walk unassisted but she unwittingly began a journey of healing that brought her to the ocean, reinventing herself as a swimmer. 

At the invitation of the esteemed surgeon who saved her leg, Kim (now a medical case study) will speak at the hospital's Grand Rounds event, bringing together doctors and staff for an hour long talk featuring fellow medical experts and past patients.
