Thanks to Fairchild TV for featuring Kawasaki disease on their Cantonese language Timeline Magazine program that aired on February 22.  Kawasaki Disease Canada was glad to play a role in facilitating the production of this piece that highlights the symptoms and treatment of Kawasaki disease, the possible long term effects, as well as some of the latest Canadian research.

We are pleased to be part of raising awareness of Kawasaki disease among Fairchild TV’s 500,000 Cantonese speaking viewers.

Please tell someone about Kawasaki disease today, in honour of Dylan

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.
