Why I am interested in this field of engineering

Ever since I was a little kid I've always thought the medical field was so amazing. There's this sense of wonder and excitement when you think about how far we have come and being able to know how our bodies work. The thought that we have ways of somewhat "cheating death" blows my mind. I want to be able to help do some expanding in the medical field, there is still so much to uncover and fix.
