Family Stories

We have worked with a number of very special families in the development of this information portal – special because they have all been generous enough to share their Kawasaki Disease experiences on camera, so that you can hear directly from other families who like yours, have been affected by Kawasaki Disease.

It is our shared hope that, in creating these films of family experiences, we both raise awareness of Kawasaki Disease and help families who are dealing with a diagnosis to make a ‘virtual’ connection with a few of the many, many others who have been through their own unique Kawasaki Disease journey.  We hope that by making this connection to shared experiences, each story also brings hope to those newly affected, inspiration and an insight into what the continuing journey for families affected by Kawasaki Disease might hold.

Thank you to each of our ‘film stars’ – your contribution in sharing your story will help grow understanding, awareness and knowledge about Kawasaki Disease.  We are also grateful to the Kawasaki Support Group KSSG, who provided some of the funding for these films to be created.  Thanks must go too, to the families who have donated generously to KSSG over time. Without this support, sharing these valuable films would not have been possible.  Find out more about the support group here.
