My Story

    Zach is a 17 yr. old Junior on the Perham Yellowjacket's Basketball team who collapsed during a varsity game on Jan. 20.  After receiving emergency medical procedures, he was taken to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, where open heart surgery was performed.  Once stable, Zach was moved to the University of Minnesota on Sunday for more specialized care.
    A fund has been set up at United Community Bank in Perham to help his family defray medical costs.  Donation’s can be made at any UCB location in the name of the Zach Gabbard Fund.  They can also be sent to United Community Bank at 155 Second Street SW, Perham MN 56573.
