“I was born in 1965 with a variety of cardiac defects.
Thanks to all the advancements in cardiac care and after
four significant surgeries, I remain here and
committed to defeating heart disease.” - Tony Foreman,
2019 Heart Ball Chair
In 1965, Tony Foreman was one of the 1 in 100 babies born with a congenital heart defect and he is one of the nearly 2 million adults in the United States living with CHD today.
