Have you ever wondered what Eisenmenger's Syndrome is? Who gets it? What are the symptoms? How does it affect a person's body from childhood to adulthood? What changes occur with the aging survivor?

Carolyn Robinson, a long-time Eisenmenger Syndrome Survivor will answer these questions and more as she details her life story of being diagnosed with this condition and surviving long enough to become a grandmother! Carolyn is a published author. She wrote an essay entitled "Leading the Troops" for The Heart of a Mother, which was an anthology of stories by women affected by congenital heart defects. Carolyn's essay was in the Mothers with Congenital Heart Defects chapter and detailed her efforts to become a mother.
