Zach's Story

Zachary McCulloch, despite his third year in his battle with cancer, graduated from Plainfield North this past month! Zach was stricken with a rare form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma. This cancer is diagnosed in approximately 350 children each year, the majority under 6 years of age. Teenagers and adults would represent about 40 of this total a year (rarest of the rare). Rhabdomyosarcoma is a highly malignant and relentless cancer.


Zachary is now going into his third year of treatment. You can read Zach’s story along with many others by going to http://www.carepages.com/.


The family recently reached Zach’s lifetime deductible. However, thanks to the efforts of some co-workers, they found another insurance company to help cover Zach’s continuing medical expenses.

Many thanks for sharing this with as many of your friends as possible! Any other fund raising ideas can be sent to Kathy Lopez at kathylopez@comcast.net.
