About

My name is Ethan Chang and I am a freshman at King Park High School in Kings Park NY. At the age of 10 months old I was diagnosed with a rare genetic brain disease (megaencephalic leukoencephalopathy with subcortical cysts). To say the least, life has had it’s ups and downs but it hasn’t stopped me! About 6 years ago I joined Heather and the “Splash team” from Splashes of Hope. Founded in 1996, Splashes of Hope is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to creating art to transform spaces, enrich environments and facilitate healing. Heather and the team set out to paint me a one of a kind mural for my bedroom. I was so inspired by their huge hearts that I wanted to give back. I have been fundraising and volunteering with them ever since, and today I am their ambassador! In an attempt to raise funds for this project, I reached out to my favorite celebrity personality, Ellen Degeneres. I was hopeful that I would be a guest on her show to play "Dice With Ellen" and win the money for Splashes while raising awareness of my condition. I have always admired her humor and huge heart. I was contacted by the show and they invited me and my family to sit in the VIP section of the studio audience! I helped paint a unique hot air balloon just for her! This is my chance to get it to her. As exciting as this is, I still have one goal I have yet to accomplish and it is the biggest one of all!

What I'm Raising Money For

I am on a mission to raise funds to create a one of a kind mural for a child in need. 6 years ago Splashes of Hope “Splashed” my bedroom to help brighten my life. This started my journey to bring that joy to others. With your help we can bring this hope and love to another deserving young person.

Why You Should Give

I can’t do this alone! The wait list for children and hospitals that are waiting to be "splashed" is too long! Help me inspire others to give back and make the life of just one more child a little brighter.
