Meet online discussion group leader, Jane Sumner.  Jane's journey with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy began in childhood. She remembers having unexplained symptoms and feeling different since she was in grade school. However, she was only diagnosed a few years ago.  She found it a huge relief to know why her body behaved like it did. Jane is amazed and thankful that her HCM medicines make her feel like a new person and now she wants to help others with HCM by being an online support group leader. 
Jane has a bachelor degree from the University of Georgia and a master’s degree from Georgia State University. She taught kindergarten, second grade and family and consumer science but, her most challenging and rewarding time was being an at home mother. Family, friends and faith are most important to her and she enjoys traveling and meeting new people. Her hobbies are arts and crafts, reading and volunteering. Supporting other women with HCM and making a difference is Jane's goal now.
