My Story

On October 13th, 2011, Zachary got the definitive diagnosis that he has Burkitt's Lymphoma. 4 rounds of chemo were started, with the last round ending in January. Zach's cancer was recently declared in remission.





At first, it was diagnosed as a "stomach bug." Then, it was determined that there was a fecal impaction. You can read the history by going to the last page of the Journal and working your way forward from there.


On the 12th, we went to Children's Hospital in St. Paul because the situation just didn't feel right. Scans and tests later, an Oncologist was called. He wanted Zachary moved to Children's Hospital in Minneapolis.

Zachary was admitted, hooked up to IVs, and an army of caregivers has been passing through the doors all night.

Head to the Journal to catch up.
