  • Lost a mommy...

    Just a call out to our wonderful HCM community. A woman in my neighborhood passed away yesterday. She had brain cancer. Debbie was in her early 40's with 3 kids the youngest is in Beccas class, her name is Chelsea.

    Today was our brownie troops trip to go horse back riding- and Chelsea was there. The death of a mother is heart breaking - but when you are an 8 yr old girl - well moms are everything. It was nice to see Chelsea play with her friends and be a "kid", but we could all see that a little piece of her childhood is forever gone.

    Please keep Chelsea and her 2 older sisters in your prayers.

    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)

    Please let Chelsea and her family know that many are thinking of her and praying for strength, peace and courage for them. I'm thinking also of Becca as she helps her friend through this very difficult time. Linda
