My brother, Jay Bychowski passed away on June 20, 1992 at the age of 23 while celebrating at our brother Joe's bachelor party in the kitchen of a friend's home. He died instantly. Jay had a myectomy done when he was 13 and five cardiac caths up to that age.

The autopsy states that the average LV measurement was 2.5cm with the aortic area of the LV measuring 4cm, heart weight of 960 grams and massive ventricular hypertophy. Bottom line states this 23 year old male died of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

We may have buried our brother during that week, but we did celebrate a new beginning at the wedding. Janet

Believe in the goodness of mankind.
