Grey's Anatomy: "Can't Fight This Feeling"

Tonight is a bittersweet victory for all parents of KD (Kawasaki Disease) kids. And we have Grey's Anatomy along with special guest Sarah Chalke to thank. Yep, it's that epic!


Sarah Chalke, a KD mom herself (her son was diagnosed a year ago), relives her experience of getting a proper diagnosis in tonight's episode, "Can't Fight This Feeling". (View the sneak peek here.)

While many of us will be thrust back in time reliving our own experiences with our KD kids, we will also be smiling ear to ear for KD having such a large recognition. On a #1 show on primetime television! Eeek!


To celebrate, share stories & raise awareness; the KD Foundation is hosting virtual "viewing parties" on facebook & twitter.

"The one thing that was important to me was that the symptoms would be mentioned and shown so that as a parent when you're watching, you're able to see the symptoms and have this visual trigger,"
~Sarah Chalke

So please, even if you're not a Grey's Anatomy fan, tune in TONIGHT at 9/8 central. And be sure to tell everyone you know too. You never know when you might hold the knowledge to save a child's life.
