طفل ذو ثماني سنوات يجمع أكثر من مليون دولار لعلاة صديقه من مرض نادر !

TIME

Some best friends will do anything for each other – even if it means raising more than $1 million.

In 2012, when Dylan Siegel, then 6, found out his best pal, Jonah Pournazarian, had a rare liver disorder called glycogen storage disease type 1B, he decided to write a book to help raise money for a cure.

Dylan describes his friendship with Jonah as « awesome as a chocolate bar, » so he called the bookChocolate Bar and started selling copies for $20 each, according to ABC.

To date, nearly 25,000 copies have been sold in all 50 states and more than 60 countries worldwide.

Jonah, now 9, is one of just 500 children in the world with the disease, which has no cure. He fights dangerously low blood sugar and has to be fed cornstarch and water every few hours through a feeding tube in his stomach. It’s the…

Also, I felt a bit jealous of all these countries that had their colour revolutions, tulips revolution, Jasmin revolution, umbrella revolution, etc. with symbolic places such as Tahrir or Maidan.

It was all so stressful. I would fret when someone looked at me the wrong way, if a teacher said a potentially critical thing (because obviously one’s entire worth as a human being is determined by…
