My name is Andi, I was born with congenital heart defects occasioned by an Atrio-ventricular septal defect (AVSD), transposition of great arteries (TGA), and Pulmonary Hypertension.
For most of my life, the ventilator kept me alive. While most people breathe through their noses, I do so through a tube inserted through my neck (tracheostomy) by a talented team of NHS surgeons. Initially, I was fed using a nasogastric tube (NGT) but I could not tolerate this for long, so I now have blended diets through the gastrostomy (PEG) tube.
I am now learning to walk with the help of my parents and physiotherapists.
Andi is so excited to be part of a special day that will bring much joy!
