    WOW - here we are 9 months into the new message board and we have past 500 users!
    I would like to send a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you for helping this board become a wealth of information to the WORLD.

    Did you know the worlds leading researchers and doctors visit here often to LEARN and here what is important to those of us living with HCM!

    Did you know that due to this message board LIVES HAVE BEEN saved via ICD implants and better management!

    Did you know that some time people disagree on the Board in one "thread" yet in others are joking and just "hanging out" and having fun.

    Did you know I am happy to see the board growing and the HCMA growing in so many ways!

    How fast do you think we can hit 1000???

    Sincerely,
    Lisa
