My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated on Zachary's with a Venous Malformation.

Zachary has a serious life-long congenital venous malformation of the left face that requires specialized attention and care. He has been undergoing treatments at Arkansas Children’s Hospital since December 2004. Our goal is bring awareness to his condition and share his unique and inspiring journey with the world.
