My name is Steve; I live in rural South Carolina and I was born with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) known as Tricuspid Atresia. CHD’s are the most common birth defect, affecting 1 out of 125 live births. Tricuspid Atresia is one of the rarer defects — only about 1 person in 10,000 has it. I have survived 3 heart surgeries, outlived a pacemaker, and I am doing well.I love the Braves and baseball in general, construct my own action figures, and enjoy 1980’s music. I am also a member of the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA). I support the ACHA in their effort to improve the quality of life for Adult Congenital Heart Defect patients, helping out whenever I can.
