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.

 

welcome to hcm awareness day!

The HCMA was founded in 1996 to promote education and understanding of HCM.  Over 15,000 people have  called the HCMA and heard "We've got you" as they begin their journey into understanding the diagnosis of HCM as a patient, a caregiver, or a referring physician"
