KD Support

We aim to help people identify the syndrome before the critical phase of heart damage 11-13 days of the onset and aid recovery with treatment that prevents cardiac arrest in young life. Misdiagnosis and late diagnosis of KD continues due to misleading symptoms and lack of GP/medical knowledge.

Support us, help us raising awareness do it through Gift Aid, Gift Aid means charities can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you any extra. More info : https://www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid

  • Technology and Tools We saw this and hope more doctors will make use of technology and tools like VisualDx so fewer cases of KD go misdiagnosed. This shows how difficult it can be for doctors to diagnose. “It’s one of those conditions where, if you’re not thinking of it, you’ll miss it. Doctors will say, ‘It’s a virus. It’ll pass’, but it’s one of the few conditions where kids can die of a major heart attack”.
