My Story

On Friday September 20th 2013 Zack was with friends hiking the bluffs in Lacrosse WI. He had been at the top of the bluffs sitting and taking photos. When he and his friends had gotten up to leave he had lost his balance and fallen down the 70 foot cliff. The rescue team had gotten to him about 20min after he had fallen (about 2pm) . The rescue effort was a tough one because they had to cut down trees and brush to safely remove him from the area. By 3:30 Zack was finally to the hospital, just two miles from the bluffs that he had fallen off of.  

Our family appreciates all support and prayers and are truly asking for a miracle to happen.
