Kapsun, Heeah’s mother, thinks that Heeah’s hands are like tulips blooming. Heeah has given over 200 concerts at home and abroad. Watch this and be inspired! Katherine

However it could mean for some patients that they do not need to undergo the emotional act of having their rings cut off unnecessarily.
