3 years ago, my 8 year old godson was diagnosed with Duchenne MD. A crushing blow to his parents, family and loved ones.
As is usually the case with a tragedy, the inner beauty and humble humanity in each of us reveals itself when we are confronted with a grave challenge. I can see how the Dino Project could become much bigger and shine a much needed spotlight on this disease. MD is a deadly serious disease, with Duchenne being the worst and most lethal form. Dino Ferrari died of the disease at age 24, and countless boys have been taken before and after Dino's tragic death.
I hope you all will spread the word of this project, and join me in not only following the restoration of this car, but contribute in any way you can to the effort of raising funds and awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
It is my humble opinion that Rosso Dino should remain the color of 5554. Somehow, when I see a before and after in different colors, it just doesn't seem like the same car. This car, more so resulting from the cause this car represents, I think the restoration of this car from its fallen state to renewed is a much more powerful metaphor to the effort to cure Duchenne's MD.
Whatever you decide, I am all in!
