Support Christine Torrisi & Zach Lean




Christine and Zach were married in May, living in honeymoon bliss. But sadly, tragedy struck on Tuesday night, August 17th. Around 9 p.m. Zach finished making a delivery for work on 3rd and Christian in Philadelphia, where he was attacked and brutally beaten by a group of teenagers on bicycles.

From the point of view of an eyewitness, he was pulled from his car, thrown down and beaten on his head. He has undergone emergency brain surgery at Jefferson Hospital to stop the bleeding in his brain.

Zach is getting excellent care, but he is in critical condition. The next days and weeks will be important as they assess the level of swelling and bleeding in his brain, and more seriously the long-term impact.

This kind and gentle young man is fighting for his life and we need all of your support.

It’s been very hard for Christine and her loved ones to process the senselessness of this unprovoked attack and the way things change so dramatically in an instant.

We ask to please pray for Zach, and to support them during this hardship in the weeks and months ahead.
