Cardiomyopathy is a condition that makes it hard for the heart to deliver blood to the body. In severe cases, it can lead to heart failure. Researchers suggest that cardiomyopathy is an inherited disorder that affects the heart muscles.
There are two types of this condition; dilated cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Dilated cardiomyopathy is associated with dilation of the ventricular walls which makes the muscle fibre stretch. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is associated with the excessive thickening of the cardiac muscle.

Andrew Jones is one of the people who was diagnosed with this condition. Resources suggest that he is forced to walk with an artificial heart in a bag, that support him. Additionally, Andrew Jones is forced to frequently charge the battery to support his heart.
The 26-year-old man is a healthy guy despite his condition. Some photos were taken exposing how masculine he is, more than some of the healthy people. The photos are shown below;
