  • Convincing my brother

    This is me trying to convince my twin brother that maybe his "wacky EKG" and "mitral valve prolapse" is HCM, and maybe he should go to Cleveland. Hello! We are up to about 9 family members confirmed with HCM so you would think it would be automatic. Exasperating!
    Diagnosed at age 53 in April 2010 (after having been
    "cleared" several times)
    Into running & cycling - cleared to continue at mild to
    moderate level
    Extensive family history
    Lost my mom, aunt and nephew to SCD
    St. Judes "Fortify VR" ICD implanted 8/30/2010 "Ces't Watt"
