Zach's Pack: Hope, Help and Healing


Please help Zachary and his family as they battle leukemia for the second time! Zachary was first diagnosed with leukemia at 22 months old. After many ups and downs, and many months, he beat the odds and defeated this awful disease. He was in remission for over a year, turned five this summer, and was excited to start kindergarten this fall with his twin brother Teddy. In July, Zachary took a break from adventures in the car, camping, and doing cannonballs at the pool to attend one of his scheduled medical check-ins. A few days later, Zach's family received the devastating news that his leukemia had returned. Zach's cancer is a high risk leukemia with the ikaros mutation. He will eventually be undergoing a bone marrow transplant. Zachary's family has made the decision to move to Boston for the foreseeable future (at least 6 months) so that Zachary can be treated at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Positive thoughts and prayers greatly lift this precious boy and his family. Zachary's mom MaryPat, a special education teacher who has given over 20 years to helping other children, will need to take a leave of absence in order to be with Zach at the hospital. Please consider all you can do including making a donation to Zachary's family at this time of need. All donations will go towards medical expenses, transportation costs, and daily living expenses while in MA. Positive thoughts, continued prayers, shares of this page, and any donation is appreciated!

Fondly, Zach's Pack
