Not in our lifetimes: Please forgive my frankness. The heart in most dilated cardiomyopathies is largely replaced by scar tissue. The best hope is stem cell work, but routinely curing this is probably decades off. I wish i could give you better news. In the meantime, let's both do what we can to reduce the barriers to making transplant organs available.
