Kawa What?

Maybe you have never heard of Kawasaki Disease.  Let me tell you a little about KD:


Kawasaki Disease has shown its ugly face in our home too many times.  Once was enough, but twice, possibly three times?  "Unheard Of" the doctors say.  Researchers have written that one theory is that Kawasaki Disease is an "autoimmune" disorder.  This is only one of several theories behind the number one cause of acquired heart disease in children.  As of yet, KD is considered to be a disease of "unknown etiology", meaning they don't know what causes kids to get KD.

THAT'S ME FOURTEEN YEARS AGO

Hard to believe it has been so long since this picture was taken.  I can still remember!  This picture was taken the day I came home from the hospital after a 5 day stay with my second round of Kawasaki Disease.  I was 6 1/2 years old in February 1994.  My name is Steven....I am now 21 years old, and am finishing up my Senior year in college.  I enjoy playing guitar, drums, singing, and acting.  I am an Eagle Scout.  I thank God for the blessings in my life!
