My Story

On May 16th Zach was diagnosed with a brain stem glioma. Five days later he began his journey of treatment at St Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis Tennessee. He spent 8 weeks there with his parents undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. He returned home in July. Zach was transformed through his diagnosis to a boy of compassion and concern for others. His tumor made him appreciate the life he had. He loved his church his friends and family more than ever. He was overwhelmed by the support he received in the cummunity. On December 26th he went home to be with the Lord. He was surrounded by his family as he passed. He will forever be remembered for the impact he had on those around him. In 30 years Doctors and scientists are no closer to a cure for this horrible disease. Thank you for your support in continuing research. Your contributions will help others survive this someday.
