My Story

Zach is a lover of all games & sports.He plays baseball, basketball, football, swimming & kungfu. He has wanted to be a meteoroligist since he was 3. He loves everyone and school. Zach was diagnosed with ALL at the end of July 2008. Started chemo, started having severe pain for over 8 weeks with no diagnoses. Then Zach had a seizure that put him in ICU. There they found that he had aspergillous fungus in his brain and lungs. After no relief from pain meds and anti-fungals they removed most of the front left frontal lobe of Zach's brain. After over 10 weeks in the hospital during that stay he finally was blessed with a clear MRI scan . Zach is fighting again after another ICU stint. Zach is a fighter and he will WIN the fight against Leukemia & Fungus and it all!!!
