    Lisa...That's great!!!
    The reason I came here was to learn as much as possible and to try and help others with HCM. I have never experienced a group of people that are so helpful, comforting and are will to share their first hand experience(s). Thank you, everyone, for being here to bring knowledge to our mind and emotion to our hearts. A special thank you to Lisa for creating this site and for spending so much time learning and teaching this large family of HCMers. And to those who are new......keep coming back, you can never learn too much.
