A very active autism parent is Sanajy Shah. His youngest son was diagnosed with autism in 2011. Sanjay is a very avid musical lover and even had the opportunity to have tea with rapper Snoop Dogg. Having the passion for music that he does, this experience gave Sanjay a fantastic idea. He felt that he would be capable of staging music gigs around the world in order to raise money for autism research.
Sanjay Shah made his dream become a reality. In 2014 he was able to succefully launch an invite only event in London. This private show featured Sanjay himself as well as other popular artist including Lenny Kravitz, Micheal Buble and Drake. Other artist were also in attendance. All funds that are raised by Sanjay’s events go to Autism Research Trust. And they use the money to support autism research at Cambridge University.

The funds that they are raising are being used for as much autism research as possible. The research will hopefully help parents to better understand the condition.Many parents don’t know where to turn for help or advice. That is the whole purpose of everything that Sanjay is doing. To help with a better understanding of autism, not just for family of autisic children but for everyone.
