Im signing because we have a girl that has KD. For 6 months we kept going up and down to GPs and A&E and everyone ignored us and when finily they found out Nella has KD - it was too late! Please just read, sign and share. Thank you

The GP diagnosed my son with measles "100%" she said. If I had not trusted my instinct and taken him to A&E, where he had immediate immunoglobulin transfusions, he would have died. In hindsight I wonder the point of the MMR if my GP was diagnosing measles - interesting...

My 4mth old daughter was initially diagnosed with a viral rash and bacterial infection and thus antibiotics for ear and throat infection. We went to a&e and would have been sent home if not for the fact she wouldn’t feed as throat was so swollen. If not for the head consultant finally getting to the Kawasaki disease diagnosis by eliminating everything else, her risk of heart disease would be doubled to 40-50%. More needs to be done to bring this into the consciousness of our first responders and medical care teams

Our little one got diagnosed and treated quickly. Thanks to informed dr and a great team of pediatritians. Some dr's at hospitals like Southampton for example were not able to always give advice on some of the long term effects KD had on our little one. Much of the research, we had to do ourselves.
