Hey guys,

I know I left for the summer but I could use your input on something beforehand... I have a rare congenital heart defect called HCM and I'd love to plan a flash mob for our next annual meeting to draw attention to our cause. Does anyone have any experience with organizing a flash mob and could help me out?

Here are two vids... the first is from Weeds which I love... and the second is an actual flash mob orchestrated by the Singapore Heart Foundation:

I'm sorry to hear about your heart defect. I can't offer any advice but I think that's a great idea.

I've always wanted to see a flash mob. They look like so much fun. If you have one you should video tape it and post it on here !


ETA: Did you see the flash mob on Modern Family? Hilarious!

Hey thanks... I've always thought they were cool also! And if we could get a bunch of HCM'ers up and participating in one it would be even cooler. The survival rate for the disease once it progresses beyond a certain point is not all that good, especially for young people unfortunately. If you've ever read or heard about a young athlete having a sudden cardiac death, it is most often due to HCM. Depression is common, but I've been extremely fortunate myself, so organizing something like this would be really fun and life affirming.
