    1 year ago today Dr Baird performed open heart surgery on Cayman. It did NOT slow him down. Today his heart is as good as new and he barely even has a scar. Thank you Dr Baird and everyone on the cardiac floor at Boston Children's Hospital.

We were told it would have to be replaced by the time she turned 2 (which was last June) but its still in place and working beautifully. We thank God every day for the amazing work of Dr. Gerald Marx and Dr. James Lock.

Kawasaki Disease Program Overview

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

The Kawasaki Disease Program at Boston Children's Hospital - part of the #1 ranked Heart Center - provides coordinated care for patients with Kawasaki Disease, both during the acute phase and in long-term follow-up. Kawasaki disease causes inflammation of many tissues of the body, including the hands, feet, whites of the eyes, mouth, lips and throat. The most concerning aspect of Kawasaki disease is its potential effect on the heart and blood vessels. Heart-related complications can be temporary or may affect children long-term. Please contact us today for a consultation or second opinion.

About Kawasaki Disease

Kawasaki disease is a rare condition that can cause inflammation in many of the tissues and blood vessels of a child’s body, including her mouth, skin, eyes and lymph nodes. The cause is unknown, but if the symptoms are recognized early, kids with Kawasaki disease can fully recover within a few days. If left untreated, it can lead to serious complications that can affect the heart.
