KD CANADA
Supports
Dr. ‘Ironman’ McCrindle
Brian McCrindle, MD, MPH, FRCP(C), FACC
Professor, Department of Paediatrics, University of Toronto Staff Cardiologist, Division of Cardiology, The Hospital for Sick Children
Senior Scientist, SickKids Research Institute

Paediatric Cardiologist, Dr. Brian McCrindle will be participating in the Ford Ironman competition in Lake Placid on July 25, 2010. Kawasaki Disease (KD) Canada is honoured to partner with Dr. McCrindle in an effort to raise awareness and funds for KD research. Dr. McCrindle will be wearing the KD Canada logo while swimming 3.86km, cycling 180.2km and running 42.2km for a total of 226.6km. Dr. McCrindle is a Super Hero to his many cardiac patients at SickKids. It is only fitting that we support him as he attempts this Herculean challenge.

Dr. McCrindle’s research interests include cardiologic aspects of Kawasaki disease particularly assessment and intervention for cardiovascular risk. Dr. McCrindle provides long term care to many young patients with acquired heart disease as a result of Kawasaki Disease at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

There are young children in our communities living with the most serious heart complications due to KD. Children with coronary aneurysms are faced with a lifetime of medication and increased risk of blood clots, stenosis, ischemic heart disease and premature atherosclerosis increasing the risk of heart attack.

In order to prevent life threatening heart disease in children, Kawasaki Disease research and education must continue. Please help by sponsoring Dr. ‘Ironman’ McCrindle. All of the money raised will go directly to supporting research into Kawasaki Disease at The Hospital for Sick Children.
