    My 17 yr old daughter has Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and also has a AICD implant. Does anyone know of any scholarships out there for kids who want to go to college with this codition? or any type of financial assistance?

    Thanks for any info you can give.

    I don't know of any off the top of my head, but I found www.college-scholarships.com that helps you search for scholarships for particular things and if you do a search on google.com for college scholarships, there are a bunch of listings for similar services --most are free, too.

    Also, your daughter should talk to the financial aid offices of her top three or so choices and see what they can find out for her.

    You know that would be a great Idea to have a scholarship fund for kids with HCM! I am experiencing the whole college thing right now and how nice it would be to not have to work full time, deal with condition, and still try to make something out of myself! So if anyone one of us hits the lottery this week (Florida was at 52 mil) we should set up an HCM scholarship! Just a thought!

    I don't know of any scholarships that help students with HCM. And I have done alot of seaching! I too, am a full time student and I work full time. It gets very stressfull and as we all know, the stress only makes us feel worse. But I haven't given up so if I ever come across any scholarships for students with HCM I will post it!

    I would tend to doubt you will find a scholarship for something as specific as "for those with HCM", you may wish to search for scholarships for those with disabilities in general. Funds are so tight in the medical world and most funding is focused towards finding better teatments for those with HCM.

    But I am with Mary...if i won the lottery tomorrow..it is on my list of things to do, until then,,,, student loans seem to be the answer.

    Best to all and study hard!
