Gregory ChinKDF Founder & Former President
Throughout 2013, countless families from across the country held fund raisers and donated to KD research to support the development of a diagnostic test. As a result of the generosity of our donors, we made a $100,000 grant to the Kawasaki Disease Research Center at the University of California San Diego to grow and support a Kawasaki Disease biorepository.
