About Dheeraj:
Dheeraj was grown up as an orphan as his parents passed away in his childhood. With a lot of hurdles in his life, he started his career as a software Engineer in India for a MNC. It took time for him to stand financially and support himself for his master’s education. To fulfill his dream he came to the USA in January 2020 for pursuing Masters at Eastern Illinois University, he was an intelligent guy who got scholarship in his school for his excellence in an academic career and was very well potential in achieving his goal. Unfortunately, with this incident all his dreams are shattered.

The road to recovery for Dheeraj will be long, but he is dedicated to continuing his journey and living a full life. As we, his well wishers, are still in the wake of this devastating tragedy, it’s difficult to imagine what the future holds, but we know that Dheeraj will never cease to be the brilliant, beautiful, hardworking, and vivacious man that he is. We simply need to be able to support him along that journey.

We are asking for your help to cover the costs of hospital stays, rehabilitation facilities, and 24/7 care for Dheeraj as he transitions into a life that is different, but still his own. Your support means the world to Dheeraj and to all of us.

Myself Kishore Chittamuru, friend of Dheeraj since childhood creating on behalf of him.
