Thanks to advances in medical science, 90% of the babies born today with a congenital heart defect or CHD will live to adulthood. That means 90% of today’s babies will someday be teenagers. For the first time ever, there are more adults alive with congenital heart defects than babies. What does this mean for our aging CHD population?
Each of our Guests today was born with a critical CHD (CCHD). About 25% of CHDs are considered CCHDs. Children with CCHDs need surgery or other procedures within the first year of life. They are at risk for death or disability if their heart defect is not detected soon after birth. Some people with treated CCHD have few related health problems later in life. However, long-term effects of CCHD can include delayed development and reduced stamina during exercise.
Today we’ll meet three adults CCHDs survivors: Monica Mossey, Tara McFadden and Jeni Busta. These ladies will share with us what their triumphs and challenges have been during their teenage years.

What happens when you are pregnant and go in for a routine ultrasound only to discover your baby has a heart defect? How do you handle the news? What options are you given? Even though congenital heart defects are the number one birth defect, there aren't many people who talk about it and it's not a widely known fact. Today we'll talk with three mothers who have been there -- who found out in utero, not only that their babies would be born with a heart defect, but that they would be born with critical congenital heart defects requiring surgery in their first year of life.
