My wish for this Holiday Season & beyond is to raise awareness & donations to help the Busey Foundation with their efforts to fund a diagnostic test & a cure for Kawasaki Disease.
Kawasaki Disease (KD) is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children. Kawasaki Disease does not discriminate against RACE, RELIGION, OR COUNTRY. Kawasaki Disease is often misdiagnosed. A test is urgently needed. And a team of doctors at Stanford University and UCSD have devised a prototype for a diagnostic test that will detect KD. This test could be up to 95% accurate but needs a two year test period before it can be proven and eventually used. This test is critical and needs funding.
Today I am asking you to join me in raising the funds for this "TEST" and to raise awareness for 'KD'.
With this "TEST", no parent shall have a child sick with Kawasaki Disease as KD often mimics other childhood diseases? With this "TEST" No child will have to suffer heart damage that can cost them a restricted quality of life and even...their life itself. Let’s save ALL precious little hearts.
SPECIAL NOTE: TO LEARN MORE ABOUT KAWASAKI DISEASE AND (KD) SYMPTOMS, go to buseyfoundation.org & learn more. Click on 'OUR STORY' to learn about Gary and Steffannie's experience with their son Luke and his Kawasaki Disease episode.
Thank you so very, very much for your generous donation.
