In Memory of my brother

Aly was a healthy, happy, rambunctious child with lots of energy and a great sense of humour! At the age of 9, he was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Myopathy Disease, which degenerates the muscles in the body. Today that illness is called Kearns-Sayre Syndrome.

“Aly really wanted to see Disneyland and and so we sent in an application to the Make-A-Wish-Foundation. His wish was granted! Unfortunately, the approval came just a week after he had passed away – two months shy of his 13th birthday. I still remember taking the call – the woman on the other end of the phone was so excited to let us know that his wish had been granted. When I informed her that Aly had just recently passed away, she became emotional and started to cry. A few days later, we received a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a card from the Foundation.

To mark the 20th anniversary of my brother’s passing on January 5, 2015, we have set up a campaign in his name: the Aly Kotadia Memorial Fund.

Our hope is to raise $2,000 to fulfill part of a wish (a full wish is approximately $7,000) so that a child can have his or her wish granted in memory of Aly. My parents and I thank you for your support.” – Aly’s sister, Farah
