Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or HCM can be a debilitating and life-changing cardiovascular
disease that reduces physical function and overall well-being. 1 HCM affects between 1 in 200
and 1 in 500 people in the general population, yet many people don’t know they have it.
The HCMA has changed many people's lives, by acting as a beacon of light in the darkness. By providing clarity in a time clouded by health issues, stress, emotional exhaustion, and concern for the future. This page presents some of those stories in the hope someone struggling understands that they are not alone, but part of an HCM community strengthened by the HCMA.
Would you be interested in sharing your journey living with HCM? Please provide your contact information and our staff will reach out to you for specifics and obtain an information release to share your story.
If you would like to make a donation to the HCMA in honor of an HCM Warrior. We welcome your support in their memory.
