    Lisa,

    Thank you so much for your wealth of information and kindness. You really made me think and also, most importantly, made me laugh!

    You have made a difference in this world of HCM. I only have talked to you once and figured that out right away. I can't thank you enough.

    I will be in touch about what I decide!

    Thanks again for taking the time to chat with me.

    Take care,
    Lisa A.
