Meet Anthony

Today, Anthony is 31 years old, but he was born with transposition of great arteries (TGA)—which refers to incorrect positioning of the aorta and the pulmonary artery. Babies born with TGA often require an emergent catheter procedure or a surgery called an arterial switch. Since the arterial switch operation reconstructs the heart both anatomically and functionally, long term prognosis is good. Anthony’s favorite form of exercise is running around after his 7-year-old, 4-year-old and 10-month-old sons. He enjoys Mexican food and would love to visit Ireland one day. He wishes he could play the drums and meet Peyton Manning and Jeff Gordon.
