In this episode, Lindsay Davis, HCM advocate and former Miss Ohio, shares her experience being diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) on the heels of the recent FDA approval of Camzyos, which is the first and only cardiac myosin inhibitor treatment that specifically targets the source of obstructive HCM. She also discusses why it's so important for people to speak to their doctors if they are experiencing symptoms that may be related to HCM or if they have a family member diagnosed with HCM.

Lindsay Davis is a former Miss Ohio, actress, and HCM patient and advocate. As a young girl, Lindsay dreamed of becoming a professional ballerina. But after frequently experiencing fatigue, a rapid heartbeat and not being able to catch her breath, she eventually collapsed after a ballet class and was rushed to the Cleveland Clinic where she was diagnosed with HCM at the age of 17. While Lindsay had to give up ballet, she was able to channel her creativity and energy in new ways, including becoming an HCM advocate.
