[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page.[/p][p]This year I will be doing various activites to raise money for research into Kawasaki Disease. This is a very important cause to me as my son Osian had the disease in 2015.[/p][p]All money raised will go to a resarch collaboration between the U.S. and the UK being led by Dr Jane C Burns MD and Professor Michael Levin. They aim to discover the cause of Kawasaki Disese, develop a diagnostic test and develop new treatments.[/p][p]Current treatment is with high doses of intravenous immunogloblin but this therapy is expensive and s unavailable in many parts of the world.[/p][p]Without treatment the disease leads to the formation of aneurysms in 25% of children which can lead ot blood clots resulting in heart attacks, poor heart muscle function and even death.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]Mellissa x[/p]
