Autism Rocks is a charity organization that was established in 2014 by Sanjay Shah. The foundation’s focus is to research for a cure for autism. The Go Fund Me campaign for Autism Rocks is a nonprofit to assist in the research and development of medicines, physical therapies, and applied behavior analysis for the children who are stricken by this terrible disease. Private concerts have taken place in London with top names in the music industry as the conductive to garnish interest in this cause. These are invite only concerts; they are not open to the public.
Sanjay Shah and his wife, Usha, noticed that their small son was not keeping any food down and had been sick for around a week. They took him to a hospital where they were recommended that they take their son for further testing and in doing so found out that he was autistic. Shah, a millionaire, was able to pay for the treatment his son would need, but realized immediately that if he had not had the money, his son would have suffered for years with no help. He and his wife decided to take leadership roles in this not only their son, but the sons and daughters of other people who were not in a financial position to assist their children, but he felt the main focus should be on researching the cause of autism.
He started Austism Rocks because of his love for music, but also because he felt he was in a position to get help from people in high places. He knew of many superstars in the music industry and felt this was the best way to get the word out about autism and to ask for donations.
Autism is a developmental disease that affects the brain and the signals it sends to your body. With organizations like Autism Rocks,the Go Fund Me campaign for Autism, and people like Sanjay Shah involved in searching for a cure for autism, hopefully one day in the not too distant future, our children will be spared from this terrible disease.
