            Hi Liat -

            I am glad you found this site. It has been very informative and the people here are all wonderful. My son was diagnosed at 2 days of age. It was scary and very difficult to deal with at first but with the support of family, friends, and the friends on this site, it has been easier to deal with. Ask any question you need to...... You will get answers here. Welcome.

              Hi Liat -

              Welcome to the site. My kids were diagnosed with HCM at birth. Both are doing great. My daughter is 12 and my son is 9. They take propronolol daily and see their cardiologist every 6 months.

              Daniela has a son Matan. They are from your area of the country. She checks in this site too. Hopefully she can get in touch with you and help you understand the disease.

              Good luck with your doctor visits.
