Mel is a Mum of three awesome little people. Mel’s family were first touched by Kawasaki Disease in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, when Mel’s third child Sam, who was two at the time, was diagnosed with KD. It was such a whirlwind, and in all honesty, very scary!

Sam is still being monitored for his coronary involvement so the journey continues. Mel joined the KD Foundation to get involved as she truly believes communities like this are so important – both to know you are not alone and to get access to quality information.
