It’s hard to believe that tomorrow, September 19, 2017, marks the 10-year anniversary of the death of my son Zachary.
In June of 2005, Zachary, a previously healthy 17-year-old, was diagnosed with a DIPG, an inoperable, malignant brain tumor, with a survival rate of less than 2%. Our world crumbled when we learned Zach had 4–6 weeks to live. My husband and I are grateful Zach lived for 27 months, dying at age 19.
I could barely function, yet we had to make an important decision.
