  • HCM on TLC

    This was sent to the office this morning by Stew Krug:

    On Monday evening, March 7th, on "Dr. G Medical Examiner" [TLC (The Learning Channel)], one of the two case studies was a boy who suffered SCA and died. Final diagnosis was HCM. The show follows the work of the medical examiner to determine cause of death. An interesting (disappointing?) twist to the end was that the show stated the cause was "natural cases". I guess this is relative to murder, etc. To all of us there is nothing natural about SCD.

    Did anyone else see the show?
    Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% what you do with what happens to you.

    Is this the same show (rerun) of another episode from Dr. G? Several weeks ago there were posts about a mention of HCM in a case on Dr. G.

    It's great that people are talking about HCM. Now we need to educate them on the complexities, uniqueness, and that it is NOT natural for a young person to die from Sudden Cardiac Arrests.

    More education for the world.
