Savannah's Story: VACTERL
Savannah, like host Anja, was born with VACTERL Association - that created malformations throughout the body, including vertebrae, anal, cardiac, tracheal oesophageal (air pipe/food pipe) and renal (kidney). When she was born, there was no way to get food or water into her body or out of it, requiring reconstructions. Savannah went going in for Open Heart Surgery on 24/05/202, and we discuss this in the episode. Having had more surgeries and hospital admissions than one could count, Savannah shares her insights and experiences with us. From experiences in the health system to how she came to accept and share her medical condition with others, this is an episode you do not want to miss.
