Zachary's House Fire Fund

I would like for you to meet my nephew, Zachary, who just turned 13 this past week. When Zack was1 year old, he was diagnosed with a rare lung cancer that took his left lung and put him through 7 years of chemo, radiation and surgeries to his chest to keep his organs in place until his chest hardened enough that the organs would stay in place themselves. Despite everything that he has been through and the ADHD that he now has to deal with because of all the chemicals that his body was subjected to at such a young age, he remains loving, positive and amazing! He has been through so much!

This past week, my husband and I had the pleasure of being able to have him all to ourselves for a full week and even though he missed his mom, dad and 5 year old twin bother and sister, he had a blast with us and my daughter, Maya. Today, July 24th, we drove 6 hours north to his home in New Liskeard to return him to his family only to find that his home had burned in a fire only 2 hours before we had arrived with no house insurance to help them replace what they had lost! Needless to say he was devastated because his siblings, not himself, had lost everything!! His only wish is that he be able to find them beds to sleep in and clothes for them to wear...asking nothing for himself. Too much for a 13 year old to have to worry about. This brings me to my campaign...My husband and I will do our best to help as much as we can but I am hoping to raise $5000 to replace their bedroom furniture, clothes and toys that had been destroyed in the fire as well as help cover the cost of lodging until they get back on their feet and I am hoping that you will help a little boy's wish come true.

With love and hope,
Corina and Zachary.
