Today is International Kawasaki Disease Awareness Day. #kawasakidisease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. When my youngest daughter was 18 months old she contracted Kawasaki disease. Her symptoms were similar to other childhood diseases, a rash, a high temperature and swollen glands. I had never heard of the disease, but I was very fortunate that my GP had seen it once before, and although it presents itself in different ways, he sent us to A & E. His intuition is why my now 22 year old daughter lives a full active life with no life threatening heart problems. Last year through the #instagramfamily I came across the amazing @the_kawasaki_kid1 his name is Stanley. Last year he was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease, but because his doctors were unaware of the disease, by the time he received treatment, it had already caused lifelong damage. Please take time to read his story and learn about this disease and it’s symptoms @societi_uk_kd @drranj #childhooddisease #surreymums #beaware
