Fight Zac's Leukemia
On March 21st, 2016 my only nephew Zachary Catalano was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia. I never expected for him (or my family) to need these services. I'm grateful for the care and support my family has received so far from Nemour's Children`s Hospital in Orlando.
Zac's case is treatable and we are just at the beginning of this journey. My sister and her husband are blessed with healthcare coverage for Zac, but it is a long journey with years of maintenance treatment.
The medical bills are already coming in and the goal of this campaign is to cover Zac's maximum out of pocket insurance expenses for the next few years and help with all the unexpected things that will come his way.
Any contribution is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to reach out to me privately if you have any questions.
He continues in his treatments and has monthly visits to the hospital.
Best wishes to you and your family in 2018 and thanks for your continued support of Mike, Lisa, and Zac!
On Tuesday Zac had a CT scan to check the status of the nodule that was found on his lung in November. The nodule on his lung is still present but has reduced in size from 5 mm to 3 mm since his last scan in January. We were hoping for it to be gone but a reduction is definitely an improvement so we are happy about that.
Zac has bloodwork on Friday to prepare for a spinal on Monday so we will be able to discuss the results in more detail at that time.
Zac has a new buddy! Lisa and Mike brought Nola, a golden doodle, into their family last month. Zac loves Nola and she is a great companion for him.
Thanks again for all of your support. <3
Please pray that Zac stays in remission and that his lung infection can be resolved. Mike and Lisa appreciate all your support.
Zac was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday evening before Thanksgiving and was able to enjoy the holiday at home. We are still waiting on some blood test results to see if he has any type of fungal infection which would need to be treated. A small spot on his lung was identified during a scan before he was discharged but a specialist wasn't sure it was a fungal infection. He also has one chemotherapy session left before he would enter next phase of his treatment.
So glad to hear :-)
Our prayers are with you and Little Zac!!!
that is so cute. Hope he continues to improve his numbers
Keep fighting Zac! Wishing you all the best, you can beat this!
John, thank you so much for the updates on Zac. He is such a little trooper!!!

Johnny, you've done a tremendous job with helping Zachery and the family. Thank you everyone for donating.
