During the first week of April my wife was not feeling good, she went to the doctor he said she had pneumonia and gave her antibiotics, two weeks later we sought out a different doctor because she wasn't feeling better. He diagnosed bronchitis and put her on breathing treatments. Then April 30th I came home for lunch and found her on the floor, she passed away later that day from cardiomyopathy. How can this be, someone should have cared?
Country relating to Question: United States

I talked to the doctors, and they said that this was a rare disease.
