I am Benji. I was born with coarctation of the aorta (CoA), bicuspid aortic valve(BAV) with stenosis. At a week of age, I had closed heart surgery where the surgeon performed a procedure called the subclavian flap where they used my subclavian artery to fix my aortic arch and allow for the flow of blood to get to the lower portions of my body without restriction. For the last 12 years, I have been going to the cardiologist to monitor my heart and to make sure the stenosis and aortic valve are behaving. At the last check-up in January, the doctor didn't like the measurements so we are awaiting what is decided. I will be having another check up in May.
We are taking a step of faith by signing up to do this walk this year. We will be at the Nashville Congenital Heart Walk.
