What rare heart diseases causes death at young age?

My 23 year old sister has a rare heart disease but I don't remember what the name of the disease was called, she had it ever since she was little. All I know is that the disease is killing her slowly and she is supposed to be dead around the age of 35 if she doesn't quit smoking and starts to exercising more, even so, it will only give her another 5 more years to live. Could anybody please help me figure out what this rare heart disease could be or give me a list of heart diseases which cause death at a young age?

Sorry I couldn't give much detail, but this is all I know.

    Your sister CANNOT have a RARE heart disease and not know what it's called. Do you have parents? If not, ask a relative this question or ask her doctor...........she has to have a doctor otherwise you wouldn't know she has a RARE heart disease.
