Was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in February 2010.

AML is one of the most common types of leukemia for adults, and is very rare for people under 40. Zach had received an initial bone marrow transplant from his brother Jake, in November 2011 but needed a second bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor after he relapsed. He received the next transplant in February 2012. He relapsed again 200 days after the second transplant, and is now undergoing a trial transplant treatment at Seattle Children’s Hospital.Furthermore, CTCA offers faith-based solutions to Hispanic sufferers who consider spiritual support fundamental with their treatment. As nutrition plays an intrinsic role in cancers treatment also, Hispanic patients can expect CTCA to help incorporate traditional foods into nourishing food programs and dietary supplementation. CTCA also provides info and classes about healthy eating habits to caregivers and family, so patients can keep on with this lifestyle in the home. The CTCA ‘whole-person’ cancer treatment approach coupled with a compassionate, nurturing environment offers a highly personal, familial approach that really resonates with Hispanic individuals and their families.
