    Story

    Kawasaki disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children in the UK and the western world. It's time we changed that.
    We have an enormous task to do. But we are going to do it.
    TOGETHER we will.
    Join us and help us protect tiny hearts. You can make a difference.
    Awareness of this often pernicious disease is currently poor. Slow diagnosis and delayed treatment of Kawasaki Disease can cause serious, life-long health issues.
    Children affected by Kawasaki Disease have excellent chances of a good recovery with timely diagnosis and the correct treatment. At Societi we know that recognizing Kawasaki Disease early is THE transformational opportunity to prevent what can be devastating effects from Kawasaki Disease.
    <> Kawasaki Disease has lots of symptoms in common with other childhood illnesses so it is often misdiagnosed - this means lifelong heart damage for too many children
    <> Each year in the UK there are more cases of Kawasaki Disease than bacterial meningitis! Everyone would spot meningitis and know what to do, because of brilliant awareness raising work by MRT. We need everyone to recognise Kawasaki Disease too
    <> 28% of children in the UK affected by Kawasaki Disease today have some impact on their heart
    <> 24% of children have coronary artery aneurysm(s) leaving a lifelong impact
    <> This year in the UK, up to 3% of those children affected by Kawasaki Disease will die
    By raising awareness across policy makers and funders, the medical community and the general public, Societi aims to allow children to have access to a quick diagnosis, correct treatment and appropriate long term support.
    We have an enormous task to do. But we are going to do it.

    TOGETHER we will.
