The View: Sarah Chalke Kawasaki Disease
The new show How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life) has a long title, and the story is based on the creator’s personal life.
Chalke recently guest starred in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy as the mother of a child with a mysterious disease. In fact, this storyline was based on her own real life son’s Kawasaki Disease diagnosis.
The disease often leads to misdiagnosis, and online research at kdfoundation.org helped her save her son’s life. It can be critical to get treatment within a 10-day window. Her advice was to take pictures of your kids when they are sick so you can show the visual symptoms to doctors.
How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life) airs Wednesday nights on ABC.
