CoRDS Registry

Kawasaki Disease Foundation Australia has partnered with Sanford Coordination of Rare Diseases (CoRDS) Registry.

This is an international and Central registry of individuals of any age who have been diagnosed with a rare disease. It was primarily developed to meet an unmet need for patient registries worldwide.

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with KD, you can help researchers see the whole picture.

To enrol in the CoRDS registry, or for more information, visit www.sanfordresearch.org/cords

Australia Day 26th January 2015 (KD Awareness Day U.S.)

Nidal was given the opportunity to promote Kawasaki Disease at an Australia Day BBQ at Rezz Newtown. How wonderful to be able to do so on what has been declared KD Awareness Day by the U.S. KD Foundation.


Thank you to all helpers at the Royal Adelaide Show who assisted at the coffee cart provided by the Australian Coffee.
The girls from the Adelaide Arsenal LFL gridiron team decided to get behind the Foundation and we really appreciate your assistance. It helped make this fundraising event such a success.

A very successful morning tea and awareness session was held in November. The following article was published in Heartkids S.A Newsletter.
