Trailblazers - Team Zack

We are so excited to participate in Ultimate Hike, a program of CureSearch for Children's Cancer! The funds we raise supports their mission to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research!

Trailblazers - Team Zack will hike the 12 miles Baxter Trails route on September 16, 2017 - in memory of Zack and Cam, and in honor of Fiona and Daniel. You can see information on Cam, Zack, Fiona and Daniel on my personal page. Your donations to help fund actionable research which can help cure cancer are greatly appreciated. Here's some information on Zack!

Having just graduated 5th grade in June, 2010, Zack had a scooter accident. Within minutes of arrival at the ER in Wilmington, NC, he was in cardiac arrest. In surgery, a cancerous tumor (hepatoblastoma) on his liver was discovered. After enduring 7 more surgeries at UNC Chapel Hill, brain swelling, coma, ventilator for 24 days and over 50 units of blood, Zack made significant recovery in speech, walking and motor skills. Zack later had several months of treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, then went to be with Jesus on May 28, 2011. Zack made the most of his days – being an awesome big brother and spending countless hours in outdoors activities. Zack’s dad said hiking the Ultimate Hike would have interested Zack.

We need your help to be successful! Please, join our team, register as an individual, or just make a donation on our behalf.

Together, we are fighting for the future every child deserves and every parent dreams about!

Thank you so much!
