September is Pediatric Cardiomyopathy Awareness Month. One of the reason’s September was chosen, is because Pediatric Cardiomyopathy is also considered the “Back-to-School Silent Killer”. Some even call it the “death by exercise” disease. Many children suffer from it, with their parents and even doctors not knowing until it is too late. That is why there needs to be more awareness to prevent the worst.
Maybe you have never heard of cardiomyopathy. There was a time I had never heard of it either. Then there was this sudden moment, that my whole world was shaken by the cardiomyopathy diagnosis of my baby.
