Hello, visitors! My name is Angela and I’m a librarian living in the Metro Vancouver area (BC, Canada.) I was diagnosed with an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) in December 2017 at the age of 35. This website aims to provide information on ASDs- treatment, resources etc. The blog section will take you on a journey through my diagnosis, surgery, and recovery. I hope it’s useful to anyone out there who may have received the same diagnosis as an adult.

Please note: I am not a doctor! This website is a not a substitute for medical advice. I have a BA in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science, but I do not have an MD.
