Living with a heart condition can affect every aspect of your life.
In this episode our host clinical psychologist Carlye Weiner talks to young heart patients Caitlin Rigby and winter Olympian Sami Kennedy-Sim (www.samikennedysim.com) about their heart journey, how they haven’t let their diagnosis slow them down, and tips for other young people living with a heart condition.
We also talk to Cardiologist CSANZ president Professor Clara Chow about how to get the best out of your heart journey and recovery.
