[AL] GIVENS-Information re: medical condition
I am one of eight siblings. My stepfather, Morris Givens was born in Docena, AL and lived in Fairfield most of his life. His father's name was Louis and his mother's name was Ida (she was called "Doll"). His family is deceased. Brothers were: McClendon ("Spank") - AL; Joel - AL; James - NY; Fred - MI; Henry - MI; He married my mother in Dec. 15, 1951 and they had seven children: 6 boys and 1 girl. Of my siblings, note the following tragedies.
TRAGEDIES: 1984 - a brother who was 28 years old;
1992 - a brother who was 39 years old;
1996 - a brother who was 43 years old;
2004 - a brother who was 42 years old;
All died suddenly of a heart condition that seemed to defy detection. Three brothers were athletes. The 39 and 43 year olds were twins. The 42 year old was a firefighter. They were all up talking one moment and dropped suddenly and died instantly.
We desperately need to know about the Givens family because we think other cousins died similarly. We have to find out what this is to help the children in our family. There are two brothers and a sister living. The one brother (age 52) was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy and wears a defribulator.
WE MOST FIND OUT WHAT THIS IS. ANY MEMBER OF THE GIVENS FAMILY (OR FRIENDS WHO KNOW THE FAMILY) - PLEASE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH US HERE IN MICHIGAN.
