Two years ago BBC sports reporter Chris Slegg was told the unexpected news that he needed a heart transplant within a year. He was only 41. Married, with two children, the news plunged him into a deep depression as he feared for the wellbeing of his children.

I first worked with Chris and his wife about fifteen years at BBC London TV News. In an emotional interview, Chris shares his experience in living with the rare condition Ebstein’s Anomaly. He wants to draw attention to the disease - as well as encouraging other people with life-changing diagnoses to seek psychological support.
We are also joined by Mina Arvanitopoulou, a clinical psychologist specialising in cardiology. Mina supported Chris as he struggled to come to terms with his illness.
Last year, Chris had pioneering surgery, which has enabled him to avoid a transplant for now. In this podcast Chris paints a vivid picture of his journey, sharing his fear of revealing his heart-wrenching diagnosis to loved ones, the emotional rollercoaster that ensued, and the unexpected lessons he learned along the way.
Mina shines a light on the importance of self-compassion, the power of vulnerability and the potential for post-traumatic growth.
Join me as I talk to two inspirational guests and discuss the under-reported issue of Ebstein's Anomaly.
