The Title

My father was born with fairly severe Pectus Excavatum, or hollowed chest. In this birth defect, the growth of bone and cartilage in the chest wall is abnormal creating a sunken or hollow area that can push the heart and circulatory system out of position. This can result in health issues such as a rapid heartbeat and difficulty tolerating exercise. But he was still able to make it through jump school!
