Show Notes

Kathy Ware was born in 1974 with tricuspid atresia and pulmonary stenosis. Her first surgery occurred in her first year of life when she had a Potts shunt. At age 5, she had a central shunt inserted. In 1989 she had a Potts reconstruction and modified Blalock-Taussig shunt and then a classic Glenn procedure. All of these surgeries were done with the plan of having a Fontan Procedure, but she developed pulmonary stenosis and has never had the Fontan.

In this episode of Heart to Heart with Anna, Kathy Ware talks with Anna about what it was like to be diagnosed with a learning disability and how she overcame her issues to become a college professor. She gives advice to other heart families about dealing with congenital heart defects and learning disabilities. She also demonstrates through her own life how perseverance and determination can allow people to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
