We are less than two months away from the Brave the Shave Flagship Event on April 4th. As we prepare, it’s nice to see first hand why we care so much. So, for each of the next 50 days, we will be sharing on our Facebook page a photo and a story of a child that has been impacted by cancer. Meet Zach Deem and his family from Fargo.
In June of 2016, 14-year-old Zach was your typical teen getting a good start to his summer. After several days of high fevers, doctors diagnosed him with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).
After a brutal three-and-a-half year treatment course, Zach took his last oral chemo on October 10, 2019. Throughout it all, Zach has always kept a positive frame of mind. In his free time he loves to draw and in the future he may seek a career as a mechanic. To follow the rest of our kids go to our Facebook page.
Our stories do not always have happy endings, but they are stories of hope, resilience and deep love. We hope that you find these stories hopeful and give you a reason to care and to join us. You can also sign up for one of our events on our website. And thank you for caring.
