Kawasaki Disease is the #1 cause of acquired heart disease in children in the US and most people have never heard KD. There is no known reason how or why some children get KD. So much research is still needed. I am fundraising in honor of my son Gunnar, who was diagnosed at the age of 8 in the summer of 2013. He received the life saving treatment but only after he was misdiagnosed by 2 different emergency rooms. Proceeds will benefit the Kawasaki Disease Foundation (kdfoundation.org). The KD Foundation has 3 goals: raise awareness, facilitate support, and increase funding for research.
