  • Had a nice Chat with Cutino Mobley

    He's the ex-Clipper's (LA) basketball player that was diagnosed with HCM during a trade. He was the celebrity spokesperson at this year's AHA Kick-off for the Heartwalk here in LA.
    He is interested in promoting athlete awareness of HCM and hopefully will give me a call when I start to raise awarness of HCM and the need for AED's at high school sporting events.

    Diagnosed @ 48

    Father to 3 boys 22, 25, 29 (all currently clear - pending genetics)

    Re: Had a nice Chat with Cutino Mobley

    That is great! I often wonder what other celebrities may have HCM and if they do, why they aren't using their status to raise awareness for this condition (obviously they have a right to keep it private and I support that, but I always think there would be an increased awareness if a celebrity stepped up). Therefore, I think it's great that Cutino Mobley is using his celebrity status to raise awareness for HCM- I really can see it doing wonderful things.
