William’s Story

Undiagosed Kawasaki Disease


This is little William. William tragically passed away shortly after his first birthday as a result of undiagnosed Kawasaki disease. Over a span of three weeks, William was diagnosed with an ear infection, influenza and pneumonia by various doctors. It was not until he passed away due to a heart attack, 27 days after his initial fever, that it was discovered that he had developed multiple aneurysms as a result of Kawasaki disease.

In remembrance of William, please help us raise awareness of Kawasaki disease, so that we can try to prevent another precious child from being taken away too soon.

(Thank you to William’s mother, Jasmine, for having the bravery to share her story with us.)
