Familial Dilated Cardiomyopathy Project

Hi, everyone, this Dan Johnson. Mom just came back from getting an echo cardiogram done. Our family has a history of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. The above link points to a research project in Oregon, which is being done to investigate the famililal (easy for you to say) link in this disease. My grandmother died of this disease, and currently two uncles and one cousin (one year older than I, who just turned 33) have this disease and are on a waiting list to receive new hearts.

So, please keep us all in your prayers, and we invite you to share your thoughts with us!

Thanks and God bless!

P.S. I found the above link while doing a Google search for 'cardiomyopathy'. Here is the link to all of the search results: One interesting thing to note is that Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy is the most common heart disease in cats. Now that I've piqued your curiosity (no pun intended), go check it out!
