Hannah was born on August 22, 2010 in Seoul, South Korea with tracheal agenesis (lack of a trachea), and was only able to breathe through a tube inserted in her esophagus that connected to her lungs. Tracheal agenesis is 100 percent fatal, and no child born with the condition has ever lived beyond six years. Hannah had lived in the intensive care unit for two and a half years at Seoul National Hospital before being transported to Illinois for the surgery.
