About the ZEAL Site
Imagine how different your life would be if you were diagnosed with cancer, how it might feel to deliver the news to your family, friends, co-workers, and to live with an uncertainty of your future. Or perhaps cancer has already touched your life in some way, and you are here because you know the positive effects of your support.
The purpose of this website is to share the experience of someone who has been there. To acquaint you with a man who has decided to live in gratitude for each day in spite of where his diagnosis may take him in life. To inspire you to share in his positive attitude and the belief that he has already won. To encourage and give you the opportunity to help us help him focus on healing and living in spite of ongoing medical expenses.
About Friends for ZEALand the ZEAL Project Team
Chronic myelogenous leukemia is a
slow-growing cancer that starts in the blood-forming cells of the bone marrow (myeloid) and invades the blood.
Although it's not clear what initially sets off this process, doctors have discovered how it progresses into CML. This clearer understanding has lead to the development of the medications currently used to effectively treat CML.
We encourage you to explore some of the resources that helped us understand the nature of Zach's diagnosis.
