Hulloa. My name is Shrish Sudharsan, and I have something to share with you.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Most of us haven't heard of this disease before. As a matter of fact, I was introduced to this disease just a few days ago, during a crowd-funding program in our school, held by Fueladream.com. This was despite the fact that one of my own classmates had been suffering from this disease for over a decade.
Ignorance, my friends, is NOT bliss. A million children in India, and over 6 million throughout the world, have this disease, and there is no cure. Afflictions such as this are extremely destructive, and have a profound negative impact on the lives of the patients and their families. DMD patients usually do not live beyond their teen years.
This campaign is aimed at raising money to fund the treatment of an underprivileged child, whose life has been cut short by DMD. My goal is to raise at least Rs 20,000 in 21 days, and this will help provide for the patient's needs for an entire year. A donation of any amount, towards this cause, would be much appreciated and will earn the gratitude of the families affected.
