This is Dylan. He would have turned 15 years old today, but at six years old Dylan suffered a fatal heart attack as a result of undiagnosed Kawasaki disease. Dylan is the son of Elizabeth, the President of Kawasaki Disease Canada, who has shown tremendous strength, courage and perseverance, and is the driving force behind our organization. This is why we do, what we do. We raise awareness to try to save children from lifelong heart damage and to try to save families from lifelong heartache due to the loss of a child. Please tell someone about Kawasaki disease today, in honour of Dylan.
