◈ How are the donations used?
The anniversary donation are delivered to the Make-A-Wish Korea through the EDM project under the name of the donor and artists, and are used to fulfill the wishes of Yeojin WishKid.
‘On a special day, please join us so that your happiness can become a dream of Yeojin (alias)!’
Yeojin Kim (alias)/born 2007/Aplastic anemia
*Aplastic anemia: A disease characterized by impaired hematopoietic function with pancytopenia in which the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets are all decreased.
When asked, "What's your dream?" Yeojin always answered, "I want to become a teacher." She thought it was a really cool thing to teach someone. It was her unchanging dream, but she gave it up when she entered middle school.
Two years ago, she would start to get a bruise or two that she wouldn’t know when or where they occurred, and that symptom that was thought of as minor led to a disease called *aplastic anemia.
Fortunately, she underwent a hematopoietic stem cell transplant, but as she had to stay in a hospital for a long time to get treatments due to side effects, the number of things she had to give up increased.
At that age, she had to worry about her health rather than the friendship, studying, high school, and dreams that her friends worried about.
When will Yeojin, who lost her dream after fighting disease, be able to imagine a future with ordinary worries like her friends?
‘Together, let’s fulfill her wishes and let her fly towards her dreams.’
Yeojin wants to recover her health as soon as possible and enjoy ordinary things. She has to endure a slightly different time from her friends, but she is more special than anyone else.
She is curious and interested in various fields, so she wants to experience many things. She is not afraid to try and challenge herself to new things. She also knows how to hold others' helping hands without prejudice.
To give her a special day gift, we asked Yeojin, “What kind of wish do you want to make come true?”
What kind of wish will Yeojin, who had no dreams at her first meeting, tell? To help Yeojin to fulfill her wishes and fly towards her dream, she needs a lot of attention and support. Please join us on the journey to make her Wish Day, the day when wishes come true.
◈ The power of wishes that enable incurable children to dream
Children go to the hospital due to a sudden high fever and pain. There, they are diagnosed with an incurable disease and start a long struggle in the hospital without even saying goodbye to their friends. Even after a long tunnel-like treatment, they cannot live normal lives as before due to their weakened immunity.
Although they can't play as much as they used to or eat their favorite foods, children with incurable diseases spread their imaginations thinking about their wishes. Please participate in the EDM anniversary sponsorship so that children with incurable diseases do not give up on their dreams just because they are sick, and so that more children can dream to the fullest.
The more love you have, the more children with incurable diseases can achieve their dreams.
Please join us so that the good influence of artists and fans can reach far!
