Being born with the most common birth defect still means you're not like everyone else. Going through the teen and young adult years is difficult for everyone, but it's even more difficult for survivors of congenital heart defects. Unlike their peers, Survivors frequently have to take medication, have to see their cardiologist regularly and sometimes even have to have additional surgery. What happens when a teen or young adult has had enough!? How do teens with congenital heart heart defects rebel? Today's show will feature a man and a woman who both rebelled as teens. They will share their experiences with us, and more importantly, the lessons they learned.
