The most common cyanotic congenital heart defect that presents in the first month after birth is transposition of the great arteries (TGA). There are two major forms of TGA -- dextro-TGA (d-TGA) and levo-TGA (l-TGA) or congenitally corrected TGA (also known as cc-TGA). Because cc-TGA is rarer than d-TGA, it's not often spoken about. On this show we'll have two adult survivors of cc-TGA talk about what it's like living with cc-TGA, how it's affected their lives and what advice they have for parents of cc-TGA and for adult survivors of cc-TGA.
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. Discover why Carolyn started Maty's Healthy Products and whether or not using complementary and alternative medicine might be an option for you or a loved one.

How can members of the congenital heart defect (CHD) community lobby for change in today's laws in the United States? One thing they can do is to come together as a unified group to speak to their lawmakers and request, in a collective voice, for changes to occur.
This is how the Congenital Heart Futures Act came into effect. Members of the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) organized a coalition of members to storm the Hill together to request more government money being spent on those with congenital heart defects. Today's episode will feature 2 ACHA members who met with lawmakers on the Hill to discuss the future of those born with congenital heart defects.

One of the most helpless feelings in the world is being told your child has a congenital heart defect, will need surgery and will have a lifetime of follow-up appointments and untold future procedures. Some parents have great difficulty dealing with this kind of stress, all parents suffer post-traumatic stress syndrome after they hand their children over to a surgeon without knowing if they'll ever see their children alive again. It takes a really special parent to survive that trauma and then to turn that angst into a vehicle to help others. Our interview with Lori M. Jones will cover her involvement as a congenital heart defect advocate and an author of a book to help others in the CHD community. Join us as we find out what inspired her to reach out to help others, what her greatest challenge was in writing her book and what new projects she has on the horizon.
