In this episode we will discuss Congenital Heart Defects with Derek Canas, AKA "D-Rek" 

Some infants are born with the Great Arteries, (those attaching directly to the heart) in opposite positions, this is called Transposition.  Transposition of the great arteries changes the way blood circulates through the body, leaving a shortage of oxygen in blood flowing from the heart to the rest of the body. Without an adequate supply of oxygen-rich blood, the body can't function properly and your child faces serious complications or death without treatment.  Listen now to hear D-Rek's story!
