What kind of activities are common amongst children who survive childhood with funky hearts? What can children, and adults alike, expect if they over-exert themselves? What kind of activities was our Guest, Jennifer Weiner, able to enjoy? How has her enjoyment for physical activities changed over time? Join us for the answers to these questions and much, much more!
