This rare form of cardiomyopathy occurs when the heart muscle of the right ventricle is replaced by fat and fibrous tissue, causing the right ventricle to dilate and contract poorly. This condition usually results in a weakened ability of the heart to pump blood.

People having this condition have a heightened risk of sudden cardiac arrest because of abnormal heart rhythms. This condition affects about 1 in 5,000 people.

Crough and several co-stars from “The Partridge Family” appeared on “The Today Show” for a reunion interview on March 2, 2010. She revealed in the interview that she was working as a manager at an OfficeMax in Bullhead City, Arizona.

AN OUTSTANDING CO-STAR

One of Crough’s co-stars on the hit sitcom is Susan Dey, who played the character of Laurie Partridge.

After graduating from high school in 1970, Dey decided to spend her life as a model. But at the age of 17, she went to audition for ABC’s television series “The Partridge Family.”

Her talent has earned her several Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy nominations. She made a big win in 1988 for Best Actress at the Golden Globes.
