I was born in the city of Uberlandia, state of Minas Gerais, Brazil on March 26, 1980. I was born with 5 congenital heart defects: my right ventricle is atrophic, I do not have the tricuspid valve, I have pulmonary stenosis, inter-atrial septal defect, inter-ventricular septal defect, and the mitral valve was over working. In other words, my right ventricle did not work properly at all. The doctors considered me a blue baby.
My first 5 months of life was very hard. I had all kind of sickness possible, colds, flu, and almost every day my pulmonary valve would close and I was in crisis with short of breath. My mom would try every possible way to help me but all in vain. My mom, at that time did not know the extension of my health problems.
