Professor Jason Kovacic interviewed by a reporter


A big thank you from Amanda 

Amanda views the scar on her chest as a sign of hope. Living with a heart defect all her life, Amanda didn’t realise there was anything wrong until she had trouble exercising in her 40s. Soon after, she was diagnosed with a coronary artery anomaly. Amanda shared her journey of ongoing doctor’s appointments, struggles and open heart surgery through a video diary to show the world that heart disease can strike anyone.
