Zach West's Journal
Written Nov 25, 2013 11:11amI know a lot of Zach Attacks have been happening, are you here because it happened to you? You have just now seen an amazing boy and hopefully you will learn about his amazing life.
He passed away May 11, 2013 just as the beautiful Orange sun came up! He was a very loved 12 almost 13 year old that changed the world! That happened to have a rare disease called INAD. It took lots of his abilities away, but it never took the ability for him to put a smile on someone's face, even while he is Heaven! His smile alone, would light up a whole world and change your perspective of life. He taught us so much and is missed every moment of every day. He was a hero to many!
If you are here because you were Zach Attacked please let us know in the Guestbook and pass on the card to share A "Random Act of Kindness" to someone else in remembrance of this sweet boy with the most beautiful eyes and a smile that defined him! He was AMAZING!
You can also join us at FB Prayers for Zach Attack to see what else we are doing to remember this sweet boy who is missed so much. I'm not the only one with a broken heart, but I know it brings comfort and joy when we hear someone shared a random act of kindness and that this boy is being remembered by giving back.. something he always did life was making someone smile! SO please, please let us know!!
And if you knew Zach, please continue to stop by and if you want let us know what you remember or miss most about him!
We were the lucky ones and as something I just read today says "Grief is not a sign of weakness or a loss in Faith it is the price of LOVE"- No truer words could be said, and he is so WORTH my grief.
With Faith Comes Hope,

Written Nov 12, 2013 1:01pmHELP!!! I am in the process of collecting *NEW donations to "Zach Attack" the 6th floor at Childrens Hospital Minneapolis at Christmas time. I am stealing this great idea from my friend Shannon who has been doing it for St Paul Children's in memory of her sweet children Drew and McKenna and she graciously said I could steal her idea and get it started at Minneapolis. Being in the hospital is awful but add the Holidays to that it is even more awful!!! Something's we can do is McDonalds Gift Certificates, toothbrushes, toiletries, blankets, small toys, books. I would love to collect money to get a bunch of parking tickets, because they charge to park there and it adds up quick! I'm hoping to be able to "Zach Attack" the 6th floor which was the floor that we spent most of our time on. I need your help to do this so can you please help me by sharing this status, and helping me? This would be the coolest Zach Attack, and I know it's something Zach would be very proud watching us make it happen.!!
Written Oct 24, 2013 1:27pmThanks for remembering my sweet boy!!! If you are here because you were Zach Attacked please leave how you received the card in the Guestbook!
We are loving that this precious, awesome child can change the world in such a special way even after death.
He was an amazing boy to get to be a momma of! I am so blessed, but more blessed that people are keeping his memory alive by leaving a Random Act of Kindness to someone else, because we all know what he did for my life! So thank you for keeping his memory alive by spreading it and letting us know how!!! I know he's watching over all of us, with the best smile very proud!!
With Faith Comes Hope,
Zach Attacks Mom
As always loving him and missing him forever and ever!
( A Proud one, at that!)
