Chillindude’s stroke rallies the Melee community to raise $158,000


In a touching gesture, the Melee community has raised nearly $160,000 in less than 36 hours for Kashan “Chillindude” Khan.

The former Smash Bros. Melee player and commentator suffered a stroke sometime around June 3 or earlier, according to his brother Burhan, who shared the news via a GoFundMe page.

What caused Chillindude’s stroke?

According to Burhan, Chillindude hadn’t been feeling well for a few weeks due to a “knee pain,” which later turned out to be an infection that had spread to Chillin’s heart, resulting in a blockage that caused a medium-sized stroke.

“The stroke was caused by damage to his heart from the infection, so he will need open heart surgery next week.” Burhan said. “Since Kashan’s insurance doesn’t cover all of the surgery and rehabilitation, this will be very expensive.”

After hearing Chillin’s financial woes, the Melee community rallied immediately to raise funds, devoted towards the streamer’s medical care and recovery.

Apprising of the situation

Apprising the community for Chillindude’s current condition, Burhan said, “Kashan is already on the path to recovery as his speech and movement have improved substantially in just a few days.”

The long-time Team Liquid content creator’s health woes sent ripples through the Smash Bros. community, uniting thousands of fans and players, to come out in support of the streamer.

HugS86 isn’t the only popular Smash Bros. personality voicing his support for Chillin.

Joseph “Mang0” Marquez, William “Leffen” Hjelte, and many others have shared his GoFundMe on social media to get as much help for him as possible.

Popular streamer, Ludwig, who also got his start in content creation as part of the Melee community, shared Chillin’s story with fans at the end of his most recent YouTube video, and at the same time donated $10,000.
