About Smile with Shiv

Smile with Shiv is a family fund that was set up by Sejal & Manoj Thakrar when their 8 year old son, Shiv was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) in April 2014.

DMD is a horrible progressive life limiting muscle wasting condition of which there is currently no effective treatment or cure for all who live with it.

Sejal & Manoj found themselves in a race against time. Deciding not to sit back and wait for a treatment or cure to materialise but to act to and do what was possible to speed up the process. For this reason they have set up the 'Smile with Shiv' and the goals are simple:

  1. Raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
  2. Raise as much money as possible so it can be given to those working to save Shiv’s life and thousands of other children with this horrific condition
  3. Work with the Duchenne community to ensure we have access to potential treatments as early as possible

Smile with Shiv are working closely with 'Duchenne UK', a leading UK charity , to raise as much money for the Duchenne Research to help find an effective treatment and a cure for this horrible progressive condition - We are helping the World's Strongest Boys!
