Zach’s Story

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together...there is something you must always remember..You are braver than you believe, stronger the you seem,and smarter than you think...but the most important thing is, even if we're apart...I'll always be with you.-Winnie The Pooh

Zachary Thomas West 08/25/2000-05/11/2013 Zach was born a healthy typical boy, until around the age of two when he started to have trouble walking and talking. We have been on a journey ever since. It took us over 5 years to get Zach properly diagnosed and in the meantime he lost the abilility to walk and talk. He has a very progressive disease called Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (INAD). Zach lost his battle to INAD on May 11th 2013. Our hearts were forever broken that day.  We honor his smile and amazing memory by doing Zach Attacks throughout the year.
