A teenager with a heart defect – so what?

Whether you feel that your heart defect places restrictions on your life, or you don’t think about it at all, it’s time for a wake-up call! Since you were born, your parents have taken care of everything related to your health, but soon it will be up to you. Even though it may not always feel like it, you are already entitled to make a lot of decisions on your own. If you have no clue about your congenital heart defect, don’t worry, you are not alone. Many teenagers know very little about their disease. The time has come, however, to find out more about your heart and health. You can do it!
