Boca Raton seventh-grader dies suddenly

With no mention of a defibrillator, one has to wonder if this could have been prevented!  So sad!  Please have your children screened for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM).


  1. Usually, the cause of the cardiomyopathy is not known. However, in some cases, physicians are able to distinguish some contributing factors.

  2. While this may be true, screening to determine the presence of HCM is one step that can be taken to try to avoid such heartbreak.
