Julie, Alaska

I was born with a hole in my heart.  At school, I was unable to participate in P.E. without a doctor’s note. Each time I did a strenuous activity, I could feel my heart rapidly beating. I was always exhausted and got sick very often. Fortunately, just after my 12th birthday I had a PDA Repair (Patent Ductus Arteriosus).  Shortly after the surgery, I was able to compete in running events. Now I do marathons and half-marathons joyfully.
