Long story short: I'm the only human being in history to have a heart attack this young and be this healthy at this age, with doctors saying I've basically stabilized and death is not on my horizon. All the predicted things that would have happened to me have not happened, and I'm in shape, athletic, etc.

Never had surgery, never had anything but digoxin for about 16 years and CoQ10 for a few. Not on ACE Inhibitors or Beta Blockers right now, never have been.

I'm trying to find doctors, scientists, anyone who can figure out tests that could possibly be done on my blood, genome, environment, anything like that to try and see why I'm so incredibly resilient to heart disease, and if possible, maybe a cure could be synthesizes that far outstrips any previous cures or medicines for heart disease.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I admire you for being proactive in trying to prevent heart attacks in infants.
Yes babies can have heart attacks but it is rare.  I am curious to know if you were dx with congenital heart disease ?
You may want to send out letters to find doctors and  scientists who work for hopsitals with neonatal units that specialize in cardiac care.  The University of MN, Mayo Clinic and Children's Heart Hospital of Pittsburgh come to mind.  Also there are many pediatric clinics you could contact to help you with your research on this topic.
Google Physician's Clinics that have a Peds Cardiac Physician on staff.
I wish you luck and hope you let us hear what info you find out.
