My Story

Zachery is an outgoing, headstrong little boy who likes trucks, watching Spongebob, and playing outside. He and his brother, Coen, love playing with Play-Doh and having make-believe lightsaber battles. Now that we're in maintenance, Zach loves going out to dinner at restaurants and still gets a magical look in his eye when we go into places he hadn't been to in so long. Zach has taken each day of the challenge of his diagnosis with a strength I can't even put into words. From the first days of his diagnosis, he said "I'm a fighter" and would beat the "dumb Leukemia" that had caused the painful limp that kept him from walking for over three months. He is my son, he is my inspiration, he is my hero.
