  • Chow! From Italy?!

    I have received a package today from a good friend of ours in Italy. Dr. Paolo Spirito who has translated "HCM for Patients, their Families and interested Physicians" into Italian!

    I have gotten such a kick out of seeing this!

    When the HCMA was founded, we hoped to help those in the USA get to better care. I never dreamed that we would be able to reach across the world to help patients with HCM EVERYWHERE!

    A Russian translation is in the works as well.

    Thank You Dr. Sprirto for helping us reach SO many!

    Knowledge is power ... Stay informed!
    YOU can make a difference - all you have to do is try!

    Dx age 12 current age 46 and counting!
    lost: 5 family members to HCM (SCD, Stroke, CHF)
    Others diagnosed living with HCM (or gene +) include - daughter, niece, nephew, cousin, sister and many many friends!
    Therapy - ICD (implanted 97, 01, 04 and 11, medication
    Currently not obstructed
    Complications - unnecessary pacemaker and stroke (unrelated to each other)
