When a person is born with a broken heart, parents must face a multitude of decisions -- many life-threatening and terrifying. As children age, they themselves become aware of their heart problems and face their own mortality. Many of us in the heart defect community (CHD) have faced the death of loved ones or friends. How does being a member of the CHD community take a toll on its members? What are some ways we can deal with the trauma that we must face? One way is through art therapy or music therapy. Today's show will deal with this topic and will feature Angela Loehr, the founder of HeartWire, International (http://heartwiremyheart.org) and Megan Tones.
Sometimes our littlest heart heroes need extraordinary help in order to survive. One of the most extraordinary machines used to save our babies born with congenital heart defects is known as ECMO which stands for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. This is a special machine that takes blood from the body, oxygenates it using an artificial lung, and pumps it back into the body using an artificial heart. ECMO is similar to a heart/lung bypass machine used in open heart surgery, but can be used for a longer time.
Twenty years ago, when my son was just a baby, all of the babies I knew who were put on ECMO passed away. But like with so many types of new technology, things have changes and improved over the year. Now being put on ECMO doesn't have to be a death sentence. Today's show will feature three mothers whose children have been put on ECMO and survived. Hear about their experiences and what they feel other parents need to know on today's show.

Is it safe to use nontraditional medicine with babies and children who were born with congenital heart defects? Do others in the heart community use nontraditional medicine? Why would a parent consider using complementary and alternative medicine with their children born with heart defects?
Today's show will feature Carolyn Harrington, the owner of Maty's Healthy Products. Carolyn is the mother of Maty, a daughter who was born with a congenital heart defect and who has had several open-heart surgeries.
