Jimmy Fund Little League 2018 Designated Hitter

Zachary is an energetic four-year-old, who has a passion for life. He lives in Ashburnham, Mass. with his parents, Anthony and Erica, older brother, Ryan, and younger sister, Emma. Zachary’s contagious smile and charm can instantly light up the room.

Diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia on May 1, 2016, Zachary is currently being treated at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic by a team of amazing doctors, nurses, and staff. They not only take great care of him, but are also loving to his entire family. A trip to the clinic for Zachary is something to look forward to in some sense, because he loves to play in the resource room, participate in activities with the amazing volunteers and child life specialists, and plays guitar or drums in the music room. The clinic has a way of making sick kids feel better with great distractions.

Zachary has a passion for both playing and watching sports. When he was diagnosed, one could often find him watching Boston Red Sox games in his room. Instead of watching cartoons, he would prefer to see his favorite team play. Zachary loves to play baseball and is a great hitter. When he can’t play, he still loves to watch games, waiting for a grand slam.

Zachary and his entire family want to thank everyone who has helped to raise money for the Jimmy Fund Little League program. Thanks to you, Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic can help many children have a healthier future.
