Maribeth Poole was born with a critical congenital heart defect (CHD) known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome or HLHS for short in 1985. Just one year earlier, in 1984, a tiny baby was born with this same heart defect. She became known around the world when doctors implanted a baboon heart in her to try to save her from dying from her heart defect. Sadly, Baby Faye didn't make it, but thanks to a staged surgical technique developed by Dr. William Norwood at Boston Children's Hospital, Maribeth has survived. Tune in to hear how this pioneer and HLHS Heart Warrior "seizes the day" and what advice she has for other CHD Survivors, parents and anyone who loves someone born with a heart defect.
